Principal's Message

Welcome to PYE!

We are a pre K - 5th grade building where #itsgoodtobeamustang !
We strive to ensure that all students are: "Respectful, Responsible, and Safe - Every Day in Every Way!"

Our elementary program is designed to meet the needs of the whole child and foster leadership characteristics following our PBIS system. We teach students to act in a Respectful, Responsible, and Safe way whether in our school or our community!
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, STEM, 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 all supported by dedicated special education teachers, two school psychologists, a social worker, a school counselor, youth counselor, and academic interventionists in balanced literacy and mathematics to support academic achievement and socialization.
