ptaofps32Sorry, folks.

We’re postponing the fall 2015  after school online registration until we can lock down the pricing.  This year we will be offering fall after school sessions at a flat rate fee around $200. The final number will be available in the coming weeks.

We also offer a limited number of scholarships and parent volunteer opportunities. Scholarships are available on a first come, first served basis but are not guaranteed. Parents who  regularly volunteer hours in the after school program can earn a free class for their child in an upcoming session. Email afterschool@ps32.org for more details.

Sit tight,  we’ll get a final number for session pricing and announce a new fall 2015 online registration start date.  In the meantime, you can read up on the exciting new fall 2015 after school class descriptions.  We are very excited to start  an awesome new program that offers 2 enrichments for the price of one!

A letter from our new Interim Acting Principal

ps32_school_logo_web

August 14, 2015

Dear parents and guardians of PS 32,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I introduce myself as the new Interim Acting principal of PS 32. I am delighted to be a part of this school community and am looking forward to helping the school grow and develop into a wonderful cornerstone of the community.

It’s my hope that everyone is enjoying their summer vacation and getting some well-deserved rest. It’s always a blessing to be able to travel, visit friends and family as well as spend some quality time at home.

Here’s a little bit about me:

I have been in the educational field for over 15 years as both an educator and an administrator. I have taught fifth grade for over 10 years, both as a general education and special education teacher. For the past five years, I have been the assistant principal of PS 10 in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

It is my belief that these experiences have prepared me to be a school leader who is able to build a community of learners, create citizens of the world and bring families together.

Please know that I have been working with Ms. Florio and Ms. Carbone so that the start of the school year will be a smooth transition.

I look forward to meeting all of you at the Meet and Greet picnics on September 1st and 2nd.

Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

Sincerely,

Denise Watson-Adin
Principal, IA
