SAVE THE DATE FOR THE 2018 PS 32 ANNUAL BASH!


Yes – it is ON!

Please mark your calendar to join us at the sixth
annual PS32 parent fundraiser, on the evening of

FRIDAY MARCH 23, 2018.

What is it?
On March 23, 2018, parents of PS32 will host a ticketed, adults-only party for the whole school community – parents, teachers, school staff, friends and family –  to give us all the opportunity to let loose together and to raise money for our incredible children.

Why do we do it?
To support the incredible array of enrichment opportunities that PS32 continues to provide for our students: proceeds from the auction represent almost half of the PA’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 (March 23, 2018)
3 – You bid online and/or come enjoy the party on March 23 and buy some of the great experiences or goods from the auction catalog.

What can I solicit or donate?
Think about opportunities through family, friends, work or other contacts to contribute unique items for auction. Items that bring in the most money include:

– Tickets to entertainment, sporting, and other unique events
– Food and drink (restaurants, bars, bottles and munchies)
– Fun family experiences (bowling, magic shows, museum tours, etc.)
– School camp deals, birthday parties
– Vacation homes

We need you!!
If you’d like to join the auction committee or volunteer in any way to help plan the biggest parent event of the year, please contact: springauction@ps32.org

The Science Fair will be held on March 28th for all 3rd-5th grade students.  Mrs. O’Brien’s 2nd grade class projects will be on display as well.  Classes will visit the fair during the day and families are welcome during open viewing times in the evening.

In this packet you will find information to help guide you along the way.  Please make sure you review all of the information carefully and refer to it as you progress.
