An Update From The Spring Auction Committee

Spring Auction 2014

P.S. 32’s Second Annual Spring Fling and Auction is coming up! We hope you’ll join us for this fun, adults-only party, to be held the evening of Saturday, May 17 at the Gowanus Ballroom. Proceeds from this PTA event will support our wonderful students and our school.

We need your help to make the event an even bigger success than last year’s auction, which raised more than $30,000! You’ve already received some information in your children’s backpacks, including forms for buying tickets, getting donations, and soliciting sponsorship and ads, as well as a letter about our school that you can give to neighbors and local businesses when asking for their help.

You can download all the forms here (ps32.org/springauction). Questions? Email springauction@ps32.org.

Spring Box Tops Contest Has Begun!

Box Tops 4 EducationDear PS 32 Families and Staff,

The Spring Box Tops for Education collection contest has begun! Our Fall contest brought in almost $700 for our school – that’s 7,000 Box Tops! Thank you for all of your support. We hope that we can surpass our previous earnings and bring in even more Box Tops before the end of the school year! Each Box Top is worth 10 cents for our school. Box Tops can be found on many products you use every day, such as Kleenex, Ziploc, and General Mills Cereal. You can even collect points for your on-line purchases!

This contest will run from Monday, Feb 3, 2014 – Friday, May 30, 2014.

Each class can be a winner! Collect your Box Tops and earn a prize! Classes bringing in over the following will win…

250 or more Box Tops = wins a book for your class
500 or more Box Tops = wins extra time in the school yard
750 or more Box Tops = wins a pajama day
1000 or more Box Tops = wins lunch with a special guest!

In order to collect and turn in box tops please follow these rules:

1. They cannot be expired.
They all have expiration dates on them – please encourage kids to check and then glance over them before you turn them in. (If it does not have an expiration date on it, it’s just a logo and does not count as a Box Top). Please do not send in expired Box Tops.

2. Collect in groups of 25 or 50.
Please collect Box Tops in groups of 25 or 50. This is how we will track class’ progress. Collection sheets that hold 25 are provided. Encourage your children to use them. This way, students and teachers can easily count them. If you need more, pick up extra copies in the Main Office, or download them at www.boxtops4education.com, or just use a piece of scrap paper and tape groups of 25 or 50 on them!

When you have filled the collection sheet, make sure to write your child’s class number on the collection sheet. You can send them to school in your child’s folder.

Once a class’ submission of 25 Box Tops is received, a sticker will be placed on the graph posted in the first floor hall to mark each class’ progress.

Please help PS 32 raise valuable funds by encouraging your children, friends and family to collect! Good Luck!
