Hear what Roz “The Lice Lady” has to say! Since lice goes around schools, we all need to work at checking and keeping our kids clear of lice otherwise it just circulates. It just takes one undetected louse or nit to start the cycle again. There is no shame in lice so we should all try to educate ourselves and our children. It is like getting a cold or the flu. We can pass it to each other. We need to stay home until we are well and we need to treat it. Click here to visit our new PS32 Lice Treatment & Prevention page.
FAKS is an offshoot of the Wellness Committee and brings more allergy awareness to our school community.
FAKS was created by a mom who has a child at P.S. 32 with life threatening food allergies. The group strives to make positive changes with the support of the P.S 32 administration to keep allergic kids safe at school.
FAKS is seeking members. Those of you interested in joining the cause please email Kristen Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org
HELP US DEFER PTA EXPENSES
Did you know that the P.S. 32 PTA recycles old HP toner cartridges of any type? Bring your old HP cartridges to the next PTA Meeting. We’ll take it off your hands! The PTA receives cash or credit and the funds help pay for office supplies. You and your friends can help!

CCECs Offer Parents an Opportunity to Shape Educational Policies in their Districts and Make a Direct Impact in their School Communities.

Volunteering to assist in an after school class is a type of community service like no other. After School classes are a ton of fun and the kids love them. You would be surprised to see how much you will learn in these classes. And, if you can make a regular commitment, you will receive a free class for your child in the following session. Overall, it’s a win-win situation for everyone!
If you would like to assist in a class please write to email@example.com and let us know what days and times are best for you.

The Garden Committee was awarded a $1500 mini grant from Grow to Learn! The funds will be applied to teacher requested enhancements to the garden program including an observation kit for the tool shed (where teachers can access hand held magnifying glasses, clip boards, pencils, rulers and more), a tactile, sensory bed requested by the physical therapy team, and cooking kits that can be checked out by classroom teachers to make our garden a truly farm-to-table experience. Funds will be available in January so look for all these additions by late winter!
