Staying informed of school news, updates, events, and information is a critical commitment that all families must be responsible for.
We have a number of ways that we communicate with our school community in order to ensure all parents can keep up to date with school news:
School Website The school website is a key reference for families. Important school information, policies, and procedures can all be found here: https://welcome.psis217.net
Hawks Happenings The PTA e-newsletter is emailed to parents at the start of the week. It lists current/future school events and important information about 217. *To sign up or update your details, please fill out the 2020-21 online form (one per family) HERE
Class Parents They are the direct line of communication between the PTA and the classrooms. Weekly emails go out with important dates and info. If you’re not receiving emails from your class parent(s) or grade guardians email@example.com
Teachers Every Monday afternoon, newsletters are sent which explain what your kids will be learning in class. Dates of upcoming school functions are also listed. If you’re not receiving weekly newsletters from your teacher please contact them directly.
Facebook Page Regular updates and reminders are posted on our Facebook page, we encourage parents to 'Like' and follow our page. https://www.facebook.com/217pta/
Paper Flyers Printed flyers are regularly sent home announcing all fundraisers and school events. Check your child's backpack daily.
