Warwick Valley High School PTSA welcome letter

The Warwick Valley High School PTSA would like to welcome back our extended body of students from Greenwood Lake, Chester, Sugar Loaf, Warwick and Pine Island and to our freshman class who are joining us for the first time. We challenge the entire student body to explore your new world, define yourselves as individuals, use the resources provided to you by the teachers, staff, parents, school leaders, PTSA, community and fellow students to strive to become the best that you can be and stand proud as WVHS Wildcats.

Welcome back to our teachers, administrators, support staff and security personnel.  We look forward to a unique and successful school year under the leadership of WVHS Principal, Marguerite Fusco, Associate Principal Stephen Sweeney and Keith Johnson. We would like to recognize all the work that they have done in preparation for our students and teachers to be ready for the hybrid/in-person learning and the distant learning models. We also want to recognize how they provided the Senior class of 2020 with memorable graduation ceremonies. 

To all of the parents, it is your contributions throughout the elementary and middle school years that has kept our student body one of the best in Orange County. It is your support that will also keep the programs and activities that the WVHS PTSA provides for our young adults so diverse and successful. Parents, teachers and students – please consider becoming a member of the PTSA. Your membership goes a long way in providing us with the framework to continue successful programs. We also invite you to join us monthly meetings. The dates will be posted on the school calendar and WVHS-PTSA webpage on the district website.

We can always be contacted through our email, and check our Facebook page often for news and events.

I would also like thank the current board members for volunteering their time, dedication and enthusiasm and to promote the PTSA and our students in a such positive way.

Laura Kelly
WVHS PTSA President

We have partnered with the Student Senate and have a Faculty/Staff appreciation luncheon June in the outside in the Pavilion by the track.

The Reflections Program

The WVHS PTSA runs the Reflections program which is a National PTA and New York State PTA cultural arts competition that gives students confidence in their abilities to explore ideas and learn through the arts. WVHS students can create and submit original works in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.

This past year Warwick Valley High School had 55 entries in the 2019-20 theme was “Look Within.” Erin Eicher won for visual arts and Sadie Garrett won for photography at the Central Hudson Regional PTA level. The 2018 -19 theme “Heroes Around Me,” Grace Hoey won an Award of Merit in the Visual Arts competition for New York State. She was awarded a certificate and gift card from the WVHS PTSA for her outstanding visual arts work. WVHS Art teacher Kristin Spano was presented with “Above and Beyond” PTA Award at the Board of Education meeting in June 2019 for her dedication to her students and support of Reflections with the PTSA. 

The 2020-21 Reflections theme is “ I Matter Because……”  Interested students can find out more about it from this link or on our Facebook page or can email me, I am the reflections chairperson at the HS.
