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!
Family School 32
The mission of Family School 32 is to educate all of our students in an enriched and rigorous learning environment. Our goal is for all students to become lifelong learners and reach their academic, social and emotional potential. In a spirit of cooperation between parents, students, teachers, staff and administrators, excellence and success for all students will become a reality.
Students, please begin to think about a project you would like to submit to our annual Science and Technology Fair which will take place in March. Planning packets and information will be sent home shortly.
Always check the School’s Webpage http://ps32.ypschools.org/ for important information about upcoming events.

From the PTA:
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.
