Raise money for the PS 32 Library by reading!
Over the spring break the only homework is to read! We are asking for people to sponsor students by donating $1 for every 30 minutes they read. If every student in the school was sponsored and read 30 minutes a day we could raise over $4,500! Help us to raise more by sponsoring a class or team! Money raised will be used to add materials to our collection and library programing. Flyers, sponsor sheets and reading logs are being sent home this week.
Each class will be assigned to one of four teams (based on George O’Connor’s Olympians). The team that logs the most minutes read will win a pizza lunch in the library!
If you have any questions please reach out to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 will take the NYS ELA test this week. Students who have opted out will be working on learning activities in non-testing classrooms during the test. Continue reading

Dear PS 32 Families and Teachers,
The PTA of PS 32 Wellness Committee is committed to providing a school environment that supports the overall health and wellbeing of our school community of students, staff and families. The Committee aims to promote positive healthy behaviors, through hand’s-on education on eating for good health and nutrition, by providing greater access to nutritious foods, and by establishing programs based on DOE Wellness Policies to increase physical activity and promote mindfulness.
The Wellness Committee provides classroom teachers with suggestions and guidelines for serving healthy snacks to their students during snack-time. Below is a list of nut-free healthy food snacks the committee suggests for classroom snack-time and celebrations:
- Fruits: Fruit salad, apples slices, bananas (if no airborne allergies among students exist), blueberries, cantaloupe cubes, cherries, clementines, grapes, quartered kiwis, orange wedges, strawberries, raspberries, watermelon cubes, dried fruit, raisins
- Vegetables: baby carrots, cucumber slices, edamame, guacamole
- Grains: whole grain crackers, low-fat/low- salt popcorn, rice cakes, flat breads, pretzels
- Power Snacks: banana with sunbutter, fruit smoothies, salsa and tortilla strips, hummus with baby carrots, sunbutter and celery
Dear PS 32 Families and Staff,
We here in the Box Tops world have had enough of winter and are thinking spring. If we talk about warm weather and blooming plants enough, maybe we will see them sooner. In the fall, the Owls, Squirrels, Pumpkins, and Apples collected thousands of box tops and earned almost $500 for our school. The Owls made a surprise comeback to win the fall contest, submitting over a thousand box tops on the last day! The participation from each team was exceptional.
This round we have new teams with fresh new SPRING mascots:
Monarchs, Hummingbirds, Cherry Blossoms, and Tulips.
The four teams are all putting forth a great effort so far. You can follow their progress on the chart in the main hallway.
Box Tops can be submitted by sending them in your child’s folder, or placed in the purple folder
on the wall next to the chart. Submission forms can be found in the hallway by the chart, or a regular piece of paper will do. Just make sure to write your team name or your child’s class number. It’s a fun and easy way to raise money for our school! Good luck!
Summer time’s coming, get those medical forms ready!
Applications will be distributed the following days:
MONDAY, APRIL 25, 2016 – For all currently enrolled Good Shepherd Families
TUESDAY, APRIL 26, 2016 – For all Families Continue reading
