Welcome to the 20-21 Pawling Elementary School Year! 

The Pawling PTA is looking forward to a different but exciting year of sponsoring many fun and worthwhile programs in the Elementary School.  Here is what we have planned so far and have already done this year. 

 Picture Day; Spirit Wear, Snackarooza on November 19th , Scholastic Book Fair; Books, books and more books donated to the Elementary School Library and new teachers; Read Across America Reading Celebration; Ice Cream Social; Staff Appreciation Week and Staff Appreciation Luncheon; Field Day Refreshments; Fourth Grade Moving-up Day; Fourth Grade T-Shirts; Mystery Reader Program; Fourth Grade Math Bridge to the Middle School, Math Carnival; Movie Night Under the Stars; the Elementary Yearbook; and so much more! (all these events are subject to change with the pandemic guidelines.)

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!
