Dear Paul V. Fly Families,


We are off and moving for the 2014-2015 school year! We are so excited to have you and your child as part of the Paul V. Fly Elementary School family. Throughout the school year we would like to encourage you to visit our website. Paul V. Fly’s website will continue to serve as a beneficial resource for all of our families.

 It is our goal to provide you with current information that will ensure a strong link between home and school. On a ongoing basis we will provide key information about upcoming events, workshops, curriculum items and our general academic plan. In addition, you will be able to access our monthly newsletter, parent faculty club information, highlights from grade level activites, grade specific interventions, SWPBS videos as well as parent workshop information.

We are excited about our partnership in your child's education and we are looking forward to a wonderful school year. We hope that you visit our website often and provide us with feedback as we partner to ensure that all children are successful and reach their highest potential.
