  • Middle School Cancer Walk on Friday, April 21st

    All students in grades 5 through 8 will be walking in our annual walk-a-thon that raises money for the American Cancer Society. Our school walks every year in memory of Sebastian Oseff, one of our own students at P.S. 232 who passed away five years ago, and for Mr. Berndt, one of our own teachers who also died from cancer last year. We also walk in memory of all loved ones who have fought the battle of cancer. All students received their donation sheet and letter to parents last week. Please help sponsor our students who will raise one dollar for every block they walk. Our school goal is that every student walks around the school block 10 times, so that $10 or more can be raised per student. Thank you for your support!

Attendance, Lateness, and Illegal Absence

ATTENDANCE MATTERS  at P.S. 232Q! As part of this school initiative, we are asking parents to help us deliver the message to our students that attendance matters for success in school and in life, and that absences can easily add up to academic trouble. Punctuality is just as important! Each school day begins at 8:05 a.m. and all students should be there when the teacher begins to teach!

Did you know that missing just 10% of the school year can leave many students struggling throughout elementary school? Or that by 6th grade, missing that much school is strongly linked to course failure and even eventually dropping out of high school?  That’s just 18 days — or two to three days per month. Every school day counts. I am looking forward to a very successful academic year with your child. It's difficult for the teacher and the class to build their skills and progress if a large number of students are frequently absent.

If Your Child Is Sick.....

If your child is sick, by all means, make sure that he or she is attended to. When not sick, all students should be in school. Medical and dental appointments should be made after school hours and on weekends, unless there is an emergency. All absences are considered "excused absences" when a note from a doctor is sent to your child's teacher. An "unexcused absence" is recorded when a note is not sent in. A student must maintain 90% attendance to be considered for academic honor roll in grades 4 and 5 and Middle School Honor Society. Attendance is a factor when determining promotional decisions in June.
