Weekly Update from the P.S./I.S. 217 (Roosevelt Island School) PTA


This week is Staff & Teacher Appreciation at PS/IS 217. There are special displays on the first floor of the school for your child's classroom teacher as well as all staff in the building. Be sure to look at the different bulletin boards which say a BIG Thank You to those that are so dedicated to our children!
On Tuesday the 17th, we are hosting a very special event with a luncheon for all teachers and staff to enjoy during their lunch break. We ask for families to contribute to this luncheon by preparing a dish from your country, culture or a favorite family dish. The International food that is unique to our school is a treat that we can share with the staff. We would prefer as many dishes from around the world and the many cultures - however, if you would rather choose an item from the list below, we need many items and are thankful for your help in either way!
  • Please prepare a homemade dish to serve 12 - 16 people
  • Dishes can be warm or cold. If your dish is warm - we ask that if possible you bring it to the school and up to the library between 10:30 - 11:00am.
  • If the item does not warming or refrigerated - you can drop off in the office any time Tuesday morning.
  • Please mark your dish with your child's name & teacher if you need the dish returned. We will clean them out and return on Wednesday.
  • Please RSVP to Summer Lord & let her know what food item you will bring
  • Water bottles (case of ind. size)
  • Sparking water (case of ind. size)
  • Soda Pop (Diet Coke or Sprite)
  • Bag of ice
  • Lunch Meat (pkg. any kind - turkey, ham, roast beef)
