Welcome Back to School!

The first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 25th


Dear Putnam Elementary School Families,


It is my pleasure to be writing to you about the upcoming 2015-16 school year!  I am honored to have been selected as the new principal, and can already see what big shoes I will need to fill! I am hopeful that my 25 plus years in elementary education will assist greatly with the ongoing changes in curriculum and global education.


Much time and effort went into making sure that every student has been placed correctly with teachers for this upcoming school year. Many of our teachers have been in touch with students with welcoming letters that have been sent over the summer.  Our first full day of school for students is Wednesday, August 26, 2015.


Please mark your calendars for the first PES PTO meeting of the year which will be on Wednesday September 2 in our library beginning at 5:45 PM.. We would love to see many of you there as we kick of the new school year.  I will be discussing the school goals for the upcoming year.


I am always available to meet with parents.  Please email me at colavecchioc@putnam.k12.ct.us or call me at school at any time.  I will be offering some upcoming fall coffee hours so parents can stop by to meet me and ask questions or discuss any topics on your mind.  Research indicates that the most successful students in school are those that have families and educators working together on high expectations for learning.  I very much look forward to another wonderful and successful learning year for all of our students!
