Principal's Message

The 3rd grade students will be taking the English Language Arts PSSA from April 4th-7th and the Math PSSA from April 25th-27th.  All students will be provided breakfast in their classrooms on those mornings.  Please make sure your student is present and on time for testing sessions.  No student will be admitted after testing begins.  All missed sections will need to be made up.  Thank you for support.
Book Fair Change Drive
Thank you to our students and families for their efforts in raising money to support the Carbondale PATHSTONE Head Start.  We raised over $1,000.  The teachers at Head Start bought one new book for each student and a number of books for their classroom libraries.  Congratulations to Miss Blasko's class, who raised the most money and won a class party.

Principal's Message
Welcome to the Panther Valley Elementary School web page.  I'm excited to be joining the Panther Valley Elementary team.  I started with the district in January, after serving 8 years as a school psychologist in the Palmerton Area School District.

The goal of our PVES family is to create a safe, engaging, and positive learning environment for all of our students.  We have a fantastic staff of teachers, paraprofessionals, and staff members at our school.

As parents and guardians you are an important part of the process in helping our students achieve their academic potential.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions and concerns you may have.

Thank You,
Robert Palazzo
Elementary Principal
