Forever in Our Hearts


Anton Mark Camizio

 by Ms. Ana Maria Grippo

While we think of you Anton
our eyes may fill with tears
We can't imagine a day without you
alongside us still here

You were a gentle soul
taken away from us too soon
Your caring and cheerful smile
still felt in every room

We think as each day passes
of how you lived each day
Always to the fullest
in each and every way

You always put others first
with a smile upon your face
Echoes of your kind words
will forever fill this place

Positive and supportive
you came through the doors each day
Caring deeply about each student 
helping each one find their way


Through the adversity and struggles
that life sometimes entails
Your fighting spirit and courage
has inspired us to prevail

When we find ourselves thinking of you
we will no longer shed our tears
For we can fell you walking alongside us
helping us to face our fears

In our thoughts, our soul, and spirit
you will never be far gone
As forever in our hearts
your presence will always live on

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are excited to announce that Family School 32 was awarded the Community Schools Grant and will receive $500,000 in the next three years. Our school will expand our Family Welcome Center to connect parents to community resources. In addition, we will contract with vendors that provide mental health services and after-school programs that offer academic enrichment.

We are also partnering with the Healthy Connections for L-Y-F-E Coalition which sponsors and promotes on-site physical wellness activities including lunchtime recess programs and afterschool sports.

In addition, the SMILE Dental Program will be at our school offering dental examinations to our students.

Please review our newly revised Mission Statement!

From the PTA:

Dear Parents, 
 
Thank you to all the parents who attended our PTA meeting last night.  We appreciate your time during this cold winter season. We have listed some topics that were talked about last night:
 
 **** Our fundraisers from the Fall were great. We had a successful book fair and we look forward to our Spring Book Fair on May 28th and 29th.
 
 **** Our Holiday boutique went well. We hope everyone liked their gifts. Save the dates for our future boutiques: Mothers Day Boutique will be May 6th and Fathers Day Boutique will be June 11th.

**** Our school will be hosting our 1st ever Valentine's Extravaganza Dance. Flyers will be sent home this week for all Pre K through 5th Grade families. The dance will take place on February 14th from 7-9 pm.  It is a great opportunity to attend as an entire family. We will only be charging $5 per family and that will include Entertainment (DJ & Clown for the little kids), Arts & Crafts, Desserts, Refreshments, and a Souvenir Family Photo. We hope all our families can attend!

 We are looking for volunteers to help with:
 Setting up after school on the 14th (we will start at 3:15)
 Checking in families as they enter
 Helping with the food tables
 Helping with Arts and Crafts
 Helping at the Photo Booth
 Helping get and/or get raffles
 Cleaning up the gym at the end of the night.
 
 **** Our Special Educations Chairperson Nnenna Akoma-Ononaji has done a wonderful job organizing an Origami Workshop at the Riverfront Library which will take place on February 1st. The flyer is attached. We hope you can attend this event!
 
 **** Save the Date for our Annual Family Fitness Night which promises to be bigger and better. It is a wonderful event for the entire family that will take place on Friday, April 4th! Look for our flyer with all the details to come. 
 
 As always, email us any questions and concerns. Join us on Facebook at Family School 32 PTA.
