Welcome!

PVF Principal

   Dear Paul V. Fly Families,

 

   Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! 

  I am elated to be serving my fourth year as Principal at Paul V. Fly Elementary School. I am extremely grateful to be surrounded everyday by such very special people~ students, staff, parents, and community members who are motivated, knowledgeable and caring!

This year, as always, we will be providing our students with a warm learning environment packed with exciting new academic experiences that will result in successful and rewarding learning for all! Academics will be aligned with the English Language Arts and Math Common Core and include components from the Norristown Area School District’s Academic Plan. Students will also enjoy many special events, exciting assemblies, delightful surprises, and the very popular Paul V. Fly Elementary School musicals. PVF students, teachers, parents, and neighbors work together to make learning at Paul V. Fly challenging and fun!

Every year students at Paul V. Fly Elementary “Fly With Pride” when they: Take Care of Self, Take Care of Others and Take Care of Things. This is done on a consistent basis through our school-wide positive behavior support program (SWPBS). SWPBS a team-based, proactive approach, where we teach, monitor, and support appropriate school behavior for all students at all times. The talented and dedicated staff and the caring families of Paul V. Fly work cooperatively throughout the school year to assist our students in developing emotionally and socially, as well as academically, so they successfully grow into productive, responsible, and respectful citizens. 

We have a tremendous Parent Faculty Club (PFC) at PVF that helps us acquire things that supplement the education of every student.  From educational materials and resources, to class field trips, assemblies, and other special student and family events, our PFC does absolutely magnificent things for our children. Please consider participating in the organization.

This is going to be another remarkable school year! I look forward to working with all of the wonderful students, staff, and families of this community who make Paul V. Fly Elementary School such a special place to learn and grow!

 Best Wishes,

Mr. Mark Skoczynski, Principal
