2016 Summer School Busing Survey

schoolBusMessage from the CEC-Citywide Council:
As has been done done for the past two years, The Office of the Public Advocate is continuing to collect information regarding the environment for student with special needs on schools buses. As many of you recall, it was reported last summer that students were being transported on non air conditioned buses – even though air conditioning was medically advised on their IEP. Collecting information is a vital part of the advocacy work done by the Office of the Public Advocate. They would appreciate your help in documenting conditions for students riding school buses this summer as well.

Email gethelp@pubadvocate.nyc.gov 
Please answer the following questions:

Is your child on a bus to school this year? Yes or No
Is the bus air-conditioned? Yes, No or Sometimes
List the top three main concerns you wish to share with the Office of the Public Advocate.

A letter from Mr Dave, our art teacher

mrdave

Dear families and friends of PS 32,

After eleven wonderful years as the visual art instructor at PS 32, I have decided to accept a position at another school.  I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to be a part of the P.S. 32 community, and to be given the honor and privilege of teaching your children.

In September of 2005, I made it my goal to transform the art program at P.S. 32 into something that would be felt and experienced on a physical, intellectual and spiritual level.  I wanted the hallways to dance and sing with large-scale student driven work, for all of my colleagues to witness and truly value how indispensable the creative process is when developing a young mind, and most especially, for each and every student to believe in themselves as both an artist and a person of importance.

Eleven years later I feel very positive about where P.S. 32 is today.  While I know many of you will be disappointed with my departure, the art program will continue to flourish and will only grow stronger because of you.   The P.S. 32 community is filled to the brim with interesting, smart, talented, and caring adults that will see to it that our children have every opportunity to observe, explore, experiment, and grow.

Please tell your children that a big part of being an artist is about taking risks, exploring the unknown, and trying new things.    While it may be scary at first, it is also what makes this world so grand.    My leaving P.S. 32 is an opportunity for them to learn from a new artist, and for me to experience and learn from a new community.    And of course, let them know that I plan to visit from time to time to see how my friends at P.S. 32 are doing!

Thanks to each and every one of you for your generosity and support throughout the years.

With appreciation,

Mr. Dave
