New Principal's Message

Dear Cattaraugus-Little Valley Families, Faculty and Staff,

My name is Jenny Conklin-Frank, and I am excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Cattaraugus-Little Valley Elementary School. I have been dedicated to the field of education for the past 16 years, where I have worked as a teacher, staff developer and administrator. My most recent administrative experience, and the one I am most proud of, has been here at Cattaraugus-Little Valley as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction. As a member of the CLV community, I am thrilled and eager to transition into this new role of principal and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

We are so fortunate at Cattaraugus-Little Valley to have an incredible faculty and staff who are experts in creating student-centered classrooms focused on catering to the social, emotional, and educational needs of our students. We have a robust curricular program that emphasizes the importance of developing strong readers and writers, as well as critical thinkers prepared for any challenge placed in their path. Working alongside the staff at CLV, I will continue to support these outstanding educational opportunities for all our students.

Cattaraugus-Little Valley is a strong community built on meaningful relationships between families, students, and faculty. I’m very eager to get to know all of you and your wonderful children! In addition to building strong relationships, it will be particularly important for me to make sure that you and your child feel safe and respected at our school. My door is always open, so please feel free to contact me any time to discuss your child’s education, ways that you can support learning and to further engage in the school community. I believe open communication is very important in a school and for this reason, I encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher, to a member of the office staff or to me with any questions you may have.

At Cattaraugus-Little Valley Elementary, we have many things to be proud of and I look forward to joining this amazing team. Please be on the lookout for information about our Open House event on August 29th, 2018, from 5:30 - 7:00pm and a special Meet & Greet starting at 5:00pm. Thank you in advance for welcoming me into this incredible learning community! CLV Strong – Power in the Pack!


Mrs. Jenny Conklin-Frank

Principal, Cattaraugus-Little Valley Elementary School
