Dear Paul V. Fly Families,

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you and your child on completing another amazing school year. It has been a wonderful year of making friendships, learning new content, and growing academically. I want to thank you for your support at home and in the classroom. Parent involvement makes a huge difference in the academic growth of a child.

As we conclude this academic school year I would like to encourage you to pick up where we are leaving off. Research shows that the average student regresses one month in academic progress over the summer. This is very alarming. I would like to challenge your child to read for at least 15 minutes each day and to keep writing by journaling the events of the summer. We have posted many academic activities on our school website to keep your child academically challenged over the summer.

Finally, I wanted to let you know that you will receive a letter at the end of the summer welcoming you to another school year. In this letter you will find the 2015-2016 classroom assignment for your child. You will also find an updated classroom supply list and important dates pertaining to the upcoming school year.


In closing, I would like to express how much I appreciate your support as we continue to build on the high expectations and legacy of success attributed to Paul V. Fly. We are very excited to have you be part of our school and I look forward to another successful school year in 2015. I want to wish you and your family a wonderful, fun filled summer. Please check our school website for any news about the 2015-2016 school year.

  • Paul Fly Students Do an Awesome Job at the District 24 Competition!

    A challenging and fun way to practice your basic facts and problem solving skills is by playing the game 24. On May 6, 2015 Norristown Areas School District hosted their annual district 24 competition. Paul V. Fly was able to send their top four 4th grade players to compete with 24 other fourth graders from across the district. The Paul Fly 24 team consisted of: Braheen Mitchell, Christian Carbone, Malachi Atkins and Mark Bickerdyke. Malachi Atkins placed 1st and Christian Carbone placed 4th district wide. All of our competitors did an outstanding job!
