School 17, located in the Botany Section of Clifton, opened its doors to the community of Clifton in September of 2004. It currently serves approximately 600 students in grades Pre-kindergarten through grade 5. We are the home of the Jaguars, where the students are “Leaping into the Future.”
SCHOOL #17 NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
Our school is committed to creating a
positive learning environment where students are academically and
socially successful. As part of our strategic plan, we are
implementing a Positive Behavior Plan in order to create a positive
school climate. At School #17, we refer to this approach as
being a “Top Cat”, using the 6 Pillars of Good Character. Our
Positive Behavior Plan is designed to increase positive
student outcomes and decrease conduct infractions. Through a
team process, we have determined that being a “Top Cat” and using
the 6 Pillars of Good Character is a priority at School #17 and
every staff member is involved in recognizing our students for the
positive contributions they make in our school community. If
your child receives a “Top Cat Ticket”, please ask them what they
did to receive it and praise them. With this ticket, your
child will be entered into a raffle system to win one of many prizes
throughout the school year!
