Principal's Message


Our building is a Pre-K – Grade 5 building where we strive to follow the motto:
"We Lead. We Achieve. Together We Make a Difference!"

Our elementary program is designed to meet the needs of the whole child and foster leadership characteristics following the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Students through the Leader In Me!
Students at PYE are engaged in a strong foundation in english language arts, mathematics, science and social studies instruction. All Penn Yan Elementary students receive instruction in physical education and wellness, art, music, computer and library. Our extended music offerings in band, orchestra and chorus have a large population of students enrolled. Students can begin taking choir in 3rd grade and strings as young as 2nd grade!

These programs are supported by special education, and other strong interventions in balanced literacy and mathematics to support academic achievement and socialization.
Please feel free to contact our Main Office at (315) 536-3346 or visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/PennYanElementary, for more information at any time!
