We are so fortunate to have one of the newest, most innovative centers for technichal knowledge and learning, Cornell Tech, as one of our neighbors here on Roosevelt Island.
The expertise and skills they've imparted throughout the entire school, among all teachers and students over the past 4 years, is truly amazing!
Field Day began with some glorious weather and a huge amount of enthusiasm as 4th and 5th Grades took part in Field Day!
The Tug O' War was fierce!
The winners took on the teachers in a hot battle!
Cooling off with a water balloon fight to finish up a terrific day!
We want to say a massive THANK YOU to the 217 Bake Team who have baked, created, and donated tasty snacks and treats to all the bake sales throughout the year!

Parents, relatives, and family friends were thoroughly entertained tonight by the music performances from Grades 2-8!
Students really shone in their performances - the culmination of a years hard work in music classes. Grade 2 students gave their best choral performance, Grade 3 harmonized on the recorder, and Grades 4-8 gave some terrific band performances. Congratulations to our students on a job well done, and a big thank you to Mr Ladalia and our teachers for putting on such a tremendous show!

Things got hot at PS/IS 217 yesterday for the annual International Dinner that offered an amazing array of cuisines from around the globe!
Parents and family members from over 27 counties and regions put in an incredible effort and fed a huge crowd their tempting traditional foods. No-one left hungry, that's for sure!
And while they were munching, guests were treated to some beautiful henna tattoo's, the art of chinese tea and calligraphy, a Japanese yosakoi dance, flag making, and participated in a number of different games from countries around the world!
It was a brilliant afternoon, and we would like to thank our event Sponsor, AMALGAMATED BANK, along with Wengerd Farms, Piccolo Trattoria, Gristedes, and Emmi Roth who all donated goods to the event.
And of course, the amazingly talented Cooks, and the numerous volunteers, helpers, and families who made this event a magnificent experience! Thank you!
