School 17 "Where Learning is Fun"
Our mission is for staff members to work collaboratively with parents to develop our students' self-confidence and personal growth. The home/school connection will be strong, cooperative and all -inclusive. Every child can and will succeed in a safe and clean environment. School 17 is a school that fosters learning, creativity and growth in a nurturing, happy and stable environment. This school will produce respectful, high-achieving and contributing citizens. Our school accepts the challenge of preparing students for a rapidly changing world and will provide the opportunity to learn and succeed. With the proper support, every child will have their individual needs met to ensure they are college and career ready. Learning can and will be fun.
Where Learning is Fun!
Welcome to School 17, where learning is fun! We are excited about the new 2013 - 2014 school year. During the month of September, we will give assessment exams to all the students. The results of these exams will give all teachers an idea of the functioning level of each student in their class. The results will also enable them in better plan and prepare for the students in their class. Stay in touch to find out about the many new and exciting initiatives that will be taking place here throughout the school year.
Mrs. Rita Morehead, Principal
Off to school we go
Oh, it's off to school we go,
We'll take our lunch and ride the bus,
With everyone we know.
To All Parents / Guardians : A Letter from the Principal
Please remember that school starts at 8:35 AM. and ends at 3:15 PM. Too many parents are repeatedly picking up their children much too early or much too late on a regular basis. I am concerned about the amount of instructional time your child is missing. Please try to re-arrange your schedule so that your child has the same opportunity to learn as much as all of the other students in the class.
