Congratulations and thank you to Michelle Davies, class 701, who represented PS/IS 217 at the National Young Leaders State Conference (NYLSC), where America's most highly acclaimed students are recognized and honored and given the opportunity to further develop their leadership skills. Michelle was the MC at the closing ceremony and also performed the song "I Believe the Children are the Future" which brought all to tears, thanks to Mr. Solow's hard work.
Have questions about 217 or just want to meet some families? Come to the new parent meet and greet at our school on Saturday, June 29th at 1 p.m. The PTA welcomes you to the Roosevelt Island School!!
There have been a number of new families asking how they will get their children to 217. Currently, there are two private vans coming from Queens. If you are interested in joining one of those vans please leave a comment below. There are no city school buses; those will not travel between boroughs. If there are enough Manhattan families a bus may be offered. Manhattan families can also try to get in touch with each other and arrange their own transportation by commenting below.
Congratulations to families whose children were recently accepted to 217. We are so happy you will be joining us. We are hosting two meet and greets at the school. June 29th at 1 p.m. and July 20th at 3 p.m.
Join us for coffee and cookies, tours of the school and Q&A with the PTA and current school families. We'll have crafts and quiet activities for the kids as well as some time in the school yard for outside play.
Please get in touch through our contact page. We look forward to welcoming you and your children to 217.
African dance is just one of the many programs the PTA supports to make our school great. The third grade did a fabulous job. We are so proud of them!
The International Dinner was a huge success! What an amazing evening of Polynesian dancing, Flamenco dancing, German singing, magic and food from all over the world. Thank you to all who cooked, performed, volunteered and attended. You made this one of the best nights of the year and we couldn't have done it without you. Special thanks to Nikki Leopold and Sandra Castillo, our event chairs. This event would not have happened without these amazing women.
All the money we raised we help pay for enrichment programs like music, art, gardening and yoga. What a very special community and a very special school our children attend.
