Weekly Update From P.S./I.S. 217 (The Roosevelt Island School) PTA

To: Parents & Families of PS/IS 217

Hawks Happenings
For the week of Tues., October 12th - Fri., October 15th: 

A big thank you to all of the families that helped with our first two community building activities and fundraisers for the year.  This past Saturday (Oct. 9th) we held both the PTA Tag Sale in the morning (at the Farmer's Market) and enjoyed Jeremy Plays Guitar in the afternoon (at the school). 

We appreciate support from families - whether you gave donations for the Tag Sale, stopped by to say 'Hello' and buy something at the Tag Sale, or gave your time in making the sale possible....we really appreciate you!  For the concert in the afternoon it was enjoyable seeing children and families dancing to the tunes of Jeremy and his band!  We shared the event with The Roosevelt Island Day Nursery families & look forward to those children joining PS/IS 217 Family Community within a year or two!  

TODAY!  Tuesday, October 12th 
Time: 10am 
Place: Outside in the play yard 
(If there is rain it will be moved to the Auditorium)
*All parents are invited to attend* 

Students that will participate in the ceremony include: 
  • 2nd Grade Classes - singing a song 
  • 3rd Grade Classes - they who wrote letters to those individuals that were instrumental in making possible the new play yard at the school.  
  • Middle School Band students who will be performing. 
Reminder!  This Thursday, Oct. 14th is PICTURE DAY for all students at the school. Please fill out the paper that was sent home with what package you are choosing for your child and send in the payment with your child on Thursday.  If you need a new paper to fill out - please stop by the office and pick one up!  

We are in need of parent volunteers on Thursday to help the classes as they come down for pictures.  We would help with things such as making sure hair is combed, faces clean and outfits look their best!  

Please email Summer Lord at summerday.lord@gmail.com if you can volunteer, and please specify what time frame(s) you are available.  If there are multiple times or you can help at any time during the day - let me know you are flexible and I will fit you in where there is the greatest need.  You will be emailed before Thursday on where to meet that day.  Thank you for taking the time to volunteer which helps this event run smoothly for all classes and students the entire day!
