Dear Parents,

Thank you for the terrific turnout for Family Night this past Tuesday.  We had 156 families attend the various sessions which represents a very high percentage of our parents.  The feedback I received was extremely positive.  I hope this represents the beginning of a year of greatly increased parental involvement with the teachers regarding the progress of your child.  Working together makes it much more likely that your child will have a rewarding and fulfilling year. 

I also wish to thank our PTA officers (Ms. Rivera, Ms. Espinosa and Ms. Garcia) and our parent coordinator (Nancy DeName) for their participation and support throughout the evening.

I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that there is no school on Thursday and Friday, September 23 & 26, due to Rosh Hashanah.

We are fast approaching the beautiful change of seasons from summer to autumn which takes place on Tuesday, September 23rd.  Shortly, many of our students will be going on class trips to celebrate this wonderful time of the year.  Please check this website and your child's specific class link to keep up-to-date on these events.

Please remember to review your child's homework for completeness before signing the homework planner each evening.

If you have any questions regarding these or any other matters, please feel free to call the school for any clarifications needed.

Thank you!

Dr. Robert A. Marchi
Principal - PS 17K
