All Anti-Bullying Posters for our art contest are due on Friday, December 12, 2014. All winners will be announced on Monday, December 22, 2014. Good luck to all of our artists. We are very proud to have over 200 students entries!

We would like to extend our thanks to our PTA parents who are always there to provide special events for our students. This year's Holiday Boutique was a huge success! Thank you, PTA, for always being there!

Our "Kids Who Care" Student Service Committee had their annual Food Drive to replenish the local food banks in our Howard Beach community.  Our children delivered the food on November 21st to our local pantries. Some food was also donated to local veterans through Councilman Ulrich's food drive for veterans in our community.  It is a wonderful way to teach our young people how important service is to others less fortunate. Thank you!

P.S. 232 November Writing Contest
Categories: K-2, 3-5, 6-8

This month’s theme will be: Creative Characters
Submit published pieces to Mrs. D’Andrea’s mailbox no later than Wednesday December 17th. Winners will be announced on Friday, December 19th.   

Create your own story character.  Your character can be created from your imagination and should not have existed before in any story.  You can create a new character based on a pre-existing one with different characteristics.  Be sure that your character description includes your character’s name or title, setting that they are involved in and what they are famous for.  Be sure to demonstrate the most important ideas that make your character come to life.  You can include a short story about your character, but that should not be the focus of your writing.


Families can complete their meal application online at nyc.applyforlunch.com. I encourage all P.S. 232Q  families to do so as soon as possible so that it allows the NYCDOE to process applications more quickly. If you do not have access to a computer, please contact Mrs. DiBenedetto, our parent coordinator, so that you can use one of our computers.

Eligible students will receive meal services as soon as possible. Families of students who are new to NYCDOE schools and who do not complete the application before school opens will need to pay full price for meals until they complete an application to establish their eligibility for free meals. All students in K-8 schools must complete an application. Free lunch does not apply to grades 6, 7, and 8 in K-8 schools.
