Dear Paul V. Fly Families,
The 2014-2015 school year is flying by! We have been so excited to have you and your child as part of the Paul V. Fly Elementary School family and trust your child is having a wonderful year. We have been encouraged by the number of families that have accessed the resources and links listed on our website. It is our desire that this website will continue to serve as a beneficial resource for all of our families.
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!
The 4th grade Paul Fly Super Readers read 45 novels and earned a FIRST PLACE, BLUE RIBBON in the 2015 Montgomery County Reading Olympics at Colonial Middle School on May 4th. Both the team's knowledge of the books and their good sportsmanship made us very proud. Thanks to all of our wonderful families who came out to cheer them on at the event. Your support of your children's education is what makes them love reading and learning!
DaVita Healthcare Partners teamed up with Paul V. Fly Elementary School to help with a variety of outdoor projects to make the school even more beautiful! Several projects took place on April 25 with almost 50 volunteers from DaVita and Paul Fly! Lines were painted for playground games, flower beds were mulched and gorgeous flowers were planted, our former trail in the woods was cleaned out and wood chips were added, and our garden was completely renovated with 3 new beds! DaVita has donated a variety of seeds and tools for our students to be involved in the upkeep of the garden and watching plants and vegetables grow! We cannot thank our friends at DaVita enough for their time, dedication, and commitment to making Paul Fly look amazing!
We are proud to announce that the students at Paul Fly completed the Nice Bucket Challenge! Each class filled their buckets with nice cubes by being kind and respectful towards others.
