Breakfast and lunch continues beyond the scheduled instructional school year from June 27th to September 4th.

No registration, documentation, or ID is required to receive a free breakfast or lunch meal to all children 18 years old and under.
Donations to the 2014-15 Annual Fund are one of the biggest sources of revenue used to support the wide-ranging variety of items funded by the PTA budget.
WHAT WE DO:
- We fund Rioult Dance & Arts Connection
- We fund our Garden, and Garden Coordinator
- We pay for art & science supplies
- We fund scholarships for afterschool programs
- We fund community events such as the Garden Party and Family Fun Nights
Remember, donations go directly to improve the learning environment where your child spends 10 months out of the year! Our school, like many, has had its budget cut back significantly. The PTA is supported entirely by annual donations and fundraising events. 100% of money collected goes directly to our children’s education & enrichment!
DONATE: Give what you can.

PS 32 Samuel Mills Sprole School offers the EduKit program as an option for our busy families to order supplies for the upcoming school year. The program is a time saving, simple way for you to ensure that your student has exactly the correct supplies needed to start the year off right. Avoid the back-to-school rush and going from store to store to get all of the required items. EduKit will take care of that for you.
Pay by check or cash by June 24, 2015 using the EduKit order form. Give the payment to your child’s teacher no later than Friday, June 24th.
Order online by June 30, 2015 for the “Early Bird” discount and free shipping.
Your student’s kit will be in his/her classroom on the first day of school.
You can order online until August 14th. After that, kits may be purchased online through EduKit’s “Last Chance” program. Last Chance kits will be delivered to your home shortly before school begins. There is a $20 additional fee for Last Chance kits.
We appreciate your continued support of the EduKit program at PS32 Samuel Mills Sprole School.
We are excited to announce the start of FAKS: Families of Allergic Kids in School. FAKS is an offshoot of the Wellness Committee and hopes to bring more allergy awareness to our school community.
FAKS was created by a mom who has a child at P.S. 32 with life threatening food allergies. The group strives to make positive changes with the support of the P.S 32 administration to keep allergic kids safe at school.
FAKS is seeking members. Those of you interested in joining the cause please email Kristen Williams at email@example.com
This year’s 2015 Summer Reading Marathon book selection is the 2014 Newbery Medal winning Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo.
Our 3rd Annual Summer Reading Marathon Night started off with a live Skype call with the book’s author, Ms Kate DiCamillo. Students had the opportunity to ask her questions about her writing, books, and comics! Ms DiCamillo kicked off our marathon with the magic words, “Let the Reading Begin!”
Next, our PS 32 reader teams ran around the school to participate in fun literacy-based games and events – Poetics App Haiku, One Word per Team Member Poetry Creation, Kate DiCamillo Concentration, The Flora and Ulysses Obstacle Course, Team Recreation of Ulysses’ Epilogue Poem (from the book).
Each completed event ended with a reading by the team leader until it was time to move on to the next station. We stopped mid-marathon to feast on Flora and Ulysses-themed snacks like pizza, cheesy poofs, and doughnuts (no sardine-peanut butter sandwiches, thanks). At the end of the night, each student participant went home with a Ulysses 2000x vacuum bag filled with books! Check out our 2015 Summer Reading Marathon Kick Off Night picture gallery
Before the end of the school-year, each student at PS 32 will go home with a copy of Flora and Ulysses to read. This book is also our 4th Annual Summer Reading Book Club selection. Over the summer, our PS 32 community will be sharing thoughts, questions, and experiences with the book using our online VoiceThread Site.
Thank you to Mr Marcus (our school librarian), the school staff, The Good Shepherd Services volunteer staff, and the PTA volunteers for putting on a fun filled night for our PS 32 community!
Let the Reading Begin!
Funding for the event was provided by PTA of PS 32
