Welcome to the 2019-20 Pawling Elementary School Year!  The Pawling PTA is looking forward to another exciting year of sponsoring many fun and worthwhile programs in the Elementary School.  Here’s what we have planned so far for this year:
Incoming Kindergarten Popsicles and Playtime; Books For All Incoming Kindergartners; Picture Day; Homecoming Bike Parade; Spirit Wear; Assemblies like the Mobile Planetarium and more; Family Game Night; Cookies and Canvas; 100 Day Math Carnival; Snackarooza; Scholastic Book Fair; Books, books and more books donated to the Elementary School Library and new teachers; Thunder Ridge Day; Read Across America Reading Celebration; Ice Cream Social; Staff Appreciation Week and Staff Appreciation Luncheon; Field Day Refreshments; Fourth Grade Moving-up Day Refreshments; Fourth Grade T-Shirts; Mystery Reader Program; Fourth Grade Math Bridge to the Middle School; Movie Night Under the Stars; the Elementary Yearbook; and so much more!
Supporting the PTA is a great way to support our school and our children!  Becoming a supporter still only costs $10 and helps us to continue running the above-mentioned programs at the Elementary School.  It is important to remember that there is NO TIME OBLIGATION when you choose to support the PTA--it does not commit you to volunteering, participating in activities at the school or attending PTA meetings, unless you choose to!
