Where Learning is Fun!

Welcome to School 17, where learning is fun! We are excited about the new 2014 - 2015 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.
