Another school tour for prospective parents is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, June 24th @8:45 am.
An email update from the PTA president:
You might have already heard, but the DOE confirmed that there are 18 families who are ready to register for the PS/IS 217 G&T program. This is a monumental accomplishment given the time frame that we were working with and the obstacles that we had to overcome. The breakdown includes 7 Roosevelt Island, 5 Jackson Heights (District 30) and 6 Manhattan (District 2) families. The role of parent advocacy in this effort cannot be overstated. Thank you to those who worked tirelessly on outreach and recruitment. I will send out more information tomorrow, but wanted to let you know the good news.
One more tour tomorrow so we may see a further increase.
