CELL PHONE POLICY - As you may or may not be aware, the Mayor and Chancellor have changed the official policy on cell phones in schools.  As part of this new policy, the DOE has directed schools to set forth their own policy as to when and where cell phones and other personal electronic devices may or may not be used during the school day. After consultation with the School Leadership Team, the School Safety Team and the Administrative Cabinet, we have agreed upon the policy as outlined below. 

 In Effect as of Monday March 2, 2015:

 Phones should not be seen or heard in school.  This includes timers, alarms and any other electronic noise.

Field trip use of electronic devices will be based on chaperone/administration discretion.

PS 232 and the DOE are not responsible for lost or damaged phones or other electronic devices. They are brought to school at the risk of the owner.

Students will not be permitted to use phones or other electronic devices during lunch, recess or when using the restrooms.

Electronic devices can be used during the school day or during after-school activities only when directly supervised by a school staff member.

 Confiscation and return of electronic devices

Students using a cell phone or other electronic device in violation of the above stipulations are subject to:

First Offense:  Confiscation of item and return at end of school day.

Second Offense:  Confiscation of item and return following parent/guardian conference to be scheduled no earlier than one week from the date of confiscation and to be held on school days between 3:00 – 3:30 p.m.

Third Offense:  Revocation of privilege to bring any electronic device to school for the remainder of the school year.

Describe what your life will be like in 20 years.  You should be able to determine a “career” that you have along with any other accomplishments that you may have succeeded at.  You may add details such as where you “think” you will live and what your interests have become.

Describe the challenges you may have had along the way in your “future life”.  Tell what you did within those 20 years to complete your goals.


PARENT SURVEYS - Thank you to over 700 parents that completed their PARENT SURVEYS this school year.  Like last year, prizes were won by three of our school families, pizza parties were won by 9 classes in our school, and close to 600 students won a coupon for a "No Uniform Day"!!! Ms. DiBenedetto, our parent coordinator, worked diligently with our parent community to get those surveys done! As a result 87% of our parent community participated and close to 600 coupons were distributed to our students for "No Uniform Day". Thank you!

Walk-a-thon at P.S. 232Q Raised $6,700!
All middle school students participated  in our annual walk-a-thon to raise money for the American Cancer Society on April 17th.  Our sixth, seventh, and eighth graders walked around our school block for a total of 10 times. Family members and friends  sponsored them for at least $1.00 for every time that they walked around our school block. We walked in honor of our friends, teachers, and family members who either have cancer or who have died from this deadly disease. We also walked in honor of our beloved Sebastian Oseff, who we miss and love each and every day. We raised over $6,000 for the American Cancer Society!
