Find out what's happening...

We hope everyone can join us next Thursday for our annual Fall Family Night.  It's a great opportunity to meet your child's new teacher!  It's important for parents and teachers to work together, so that every  child has a wonderful year at PS 17!  Every class will host three sessions.  The sessions are 4:30, 5:30 and 6:30.  There will be a fifteen minute break between sessions so that parents can move smoothly around the building, and visit each of their children's classrooms.  We're looking forward to seeing you!

Principal's Corner


     Many exciting things are happening as we begin the 2016-2017 school year.  Our staff is anxious and eager to make this the best year possible for your child.  We need your active involvement in the daily educational responsibilities you have as a parent.  These include supervision of homework, getting your child to school on time and in full uniform every day.  Also important is making sure that your child gets proper sleep each night and that you monitor the use of electronic devices and social media.  I am beginning my 16th year as principal of PS 17 and I am very much looking forward to seeing you at Family Night on Thursday, September 22nd.  There will be 3 sessions to choose from:  4:30; 5:30; and 6:30 pm.  The teachers will make presentations on such topics as curriculum, homework, class trips, etc.  Please make every effort to attend these sessions so we can work together to provide the finest educational experience possible to every child in our school.  Know that we are spending a considerable amount of time in all grades studying the US Constitution and the upcoming  Presidential election this term.  I ask that you join in this effort by discussing the candidates and their positions in a fair and balanced way that helps to develop the independent critical thinking skills of your child.  The children in Grades 1-5 will be voting for US President and PS 17 President on Monday, November 7th.  Please remember that my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you for all that you have done and will continue to do throughout the coming year.
