P.S. 170's Sixth Annual Family Festival
    Our school's Annual Family Festival has been one of the most exciting events for our families every year. Although we lost our schoolyard this year due to the construction, we feel that the school year cannot be complete without a Family Festival when we all celebrate as a school community. Therefore, there will be a Family Festival on Saturday, May 31. We will open the front garden, the cafeteria, and the gym for this event. This year's Festival will be a carnival style party, which includes entertainment equipment, games, shows, information booths, and a free luncheon. A letter with details is forthcoming. Please watch for it.

    Principal's Reading Honor Roll Update
    We are currently in Cycle II of the Principal's Reading Honoring Roll. The rules remain the same as those of Cycle I. Students will continue to be credited as they submit book reports and take the two short tests on ReadyGEN Anchor texts. Total credits will be reported to parents by the end of May. Cycle II winners will be announced and prizes will be given at the PTA meeting of June. Please continue to encourage your child to read daily as we all know: Reading is the key to all doors of knowledge.

    Please click the link below to listen to Angela Lee Duckworth on stamina, a key mentality or character for success. I believe that every parent should think about how to nurture stamina for their children.
