The Wellness Committee invites you and your family to attend a Wellness Family Dinner Date and Culinary Workshop, as PS 32 teachers, students and families get ready to prepare and enjoy a hearty January meal together. Join us, as Kids Cook Monday leads our Kids Cook Monday family dinner evening at PS 32. Part of the Monday Campaigns, The Kids Cook Monday organization encourages families to set aside the first night of each week for cooking and eating a healthy and intimate meal together. Step-by-step instructions will be provided on following the family-friendly Kids Cook Monday Recipe selected for this evening, “Easy Fried Rice”, which you and your child will prepare at the school. Following the demonstrations, children will:

• Use a plastic blunt knife to dice onions, mince garlic, and chop vegetables

• Experience making their own healthy and delicious meal. Families will work in teams at tables, as children pitch in to prepare a dinner for themselves and families to enjoy. Ingredients and cooking tools will be supplied.

NOTE: Children MUST be accompanied by their parent(s) or caregiver during each step of this process. Children must not be left unattended during the evening. This event will be videotaped by the Monday Campaigns. You must return the release form along with the RSVP to the PTA Mailbox in the Main Office.

HELP: Volunteer to help the Wellness Committee with set up from 5-6pm or clean up afterwards till 8pm. Email Camille.Casaretti@ps32.org

Join us for the P.S. 32 Annual Bash!

Where/When is it?
The evening of Friday March 23, 2018 (7-11pm), at the Mark Morris Dance Center.
What is it?
Parents of PS32 will host a ticketed, adults-only party for the school community — parents, teachers, school staff, friends and family — to give us all the opportunity to let loose together and raise money for our incredible children.
Why do we do it?
To support the vast array of enrichment opportunities that PS32 continues to provide for our students: proceeds from the auction represent almost half of the PTA’s annual budget! Last year’s event raised $87,000, and supported programs including environmental education with Farmer Fred, the Metropolitan Opera Guild, Hour of Code, and Arts Connection. Auction proceeds also provided vital support for the school including school nurse supplies, field trips, and the allergy awareness program.
How does it work and what can I do to support the auction?
1. Parents (YOU!) solicit or make donations (see below).
2. We sell them online and at the auction on March 23.
3. You bid online and/or come enjoy the party and purchase some of the great experiences or goods from the auction catalog.
How can I solicit or donate auction items?
You can donate by visiting the auction site here, or by filling out this Donor Form and sending it to us by email. We have a letter to help promote the event to Potential Donors or Friends and Family. And you can also Sponsor, or request a sponsorship with this form.

What’s an incredible donation item?
It’s easy! Just take a moment to consider whether you or anyone you know has something to donate. It doesn’t have to be fancy – think stuff you’d actually love to win! Nets tickets? A weekend getaway? A batch of brownies for your child’s next class party? The possibilities are endless:

  • NEW ITEMS like electronics, toys, designer handbags, and beauty products.
  • TIME OR PERSONAL SKILLS  such as a photo shoot, a day of handyman work, or a cooking lesson where you teach another parent your favorite recipes.
  • GIFT CERTIFICATES for spas, bookstores, restaurants, and gourmet grocery stores
  • WINE – a case, a wine-tasting party…pretty much anything to do with wine!
  • TICKETS to any NYC sporting event, concert, or Broadway show
  • KID EXPERIENCES A birthday party, a week of day camp, an afterschool session
  • PROFESSIONAL SERVICES  Cosmetic, dental, photography, accountant services
  • ONE-OF-A-KIND EXPERIENCES like a weekend home rental, VIP passes to a red carpet event, a personal museum tour. TICKETS TO SNL ANYONE?
We need you!!
If you’d like to join the auction committee or volunteer in any way to help make this another record breaking year, please email springauction@ps32.org. Volunteer opportunities include:
  • copy write for donations
  • drive marketing on social media
  • crew the day-of-show
  • technical support

And PLEASE share photos from past year’s enrichment activities and school activities. Just send to the email above!
