Dear Parents and Guardians:

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for another very successful year at Family School 32.  The support you have shown volunteering your time and services to assist with our special events and programs enriched the lives of all our students and families. Our combined efforts continue to bring a new found energy of change, growth and success.

Our Community Schools Grant Programs are thriving:

Andrus Counseling Center   Thursdays    Counseling Room   Dina Kalnicki

SAS Counselor   5 Days   AVII   Jenn Mott

Olweus Counselor   2 Days     Kayla Martin


Be sure to visit our website http://ps32.ypschools.org for information on:

  • Class Supply Lists

  • Links to great educational websites for the summer

  • Special Education Programs and Camps


Summer is the time to rest and have some fun!  But, in order for us to continue to move forward we need to give our students a head start for the 2015-2016 school year. Again, Summer Learning Packets in ELA and Math will be going home with each child in Grades 1-6. Students who complete the packets will be rewarded with a Celebratory Breakfast in September.


Please encourage your children to read the books on the Summer Reading List and continue working in the Safari Montage, Brain Pop and other educational programs under 'Websites for Students' and Library Resources. 


Students are required to wear their school uniform consisting of a yellow shirt and navy blue pants or skirt.


Please take note that all students will report back to school on Wednesday, September 2, 2015. Wednesday and Thursday will be half days of school.


On behalf of the School 32 family have a restful and relaxing summer vacation and we’ll see you in September!


“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence.”  Vince Lombardi


Sincerely,


Principal

Susan Fierson

Some pictures from PTA sponsored trip to Boulder Stadium










On April 30th the 7th and 8th grade raised $100 to donate to the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society by partaking in the "Take a bite out of Lyme" challenge. The students passed the challenge on to PEARLS, Gorton and Riverside and all have accepted.




7th- 8th grade team teachers are up to the challenge!
