I would like to begin by thanking the residents of the Penn Yan Central School District for their continued support for the school budget. Each year, the budget process requires approximately nine to ten months of planning and preparation to put forward a quality proposal that is also fiscally responsible. Due to the continued support, Penn Yan continues to have one of the strongest school systems in the region. The opportunities we can offer to our students and the quality of our education are true points of pride. (CONT.)
Have a wonderful summer and best of luck at PYMS! We will miss you!
Watch the 8th Grade Graduation Ceremony, presented by Middle School Principal Kelley Johnson and many other guest speakers!
