P.S. 232 October Writing Contest
“Honoring Our Country’s Bravest on Veteran’s Day”

 

Veterans are people who have served the United States in one of the armed forces.  They have contributed to our safety each and every day that they served our country. On Veteran’s Day, we honor those who have served our country so well.

 

 

Task: Write about what you would say to a veteran to thank him/her for his hard work and dedication to the United States.  Tell him/her how you feel about his heroic actions.  Describe how you feel about your country so that they feel honored to have received a letter from you. 

At our Veteran’s Day Assembly, the winners of the contest will read their entries aloud to the entire audience. Please encourage your students to enter and to participate. The letter does not need to be specific. A short essay, letter, poem or short story is acceptable.

All entries are to be handed in to your teacher by Wednesday, November 3rd, and then Ms. D'Andrea, the literacy coach, will collect them.
Grade levels in each category: K-2, 3-5, and 6-8.

Winners will be announced on Friday November 5th 2014!!!

Thank you to all 83 parents that came to the first Principal's Breakfast of the year! I hope that the workshop on testing helped to alleviate some fears about testing and that all of your questions were answered. Ms. D'Andrea, our literacy coach, and Ms. DiBenedetto, our parent coordinator, are available throughout the year to answer any other questions you may have. Our parent engagement initiative will continue on Tuesdays from 2:30 until 3:10 p.m. Please call or send a note to your child's teacher at any time and make an appointment. Phone conferences can also be arranged. Mrs. Josephson is also available at any time. You may also email her at ljoseph3@schools.nyc.gov.

Be sure to attend our first PTA meeting of the year on Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. At the meeting, Mr. Collins, our middle school assistant principal, will present our school safety plan.



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.

Kindergarten through eighth grade students will begin their school day at 8:05 a.m. and will end at 2:25 p.m., Monday through Friday. There is no extended day session.

Please keep in mind that when your child is late for school, he or she is missing the most important part of the first lesson of the day  - the actual mini-lesson. It is also the worst way to begin the academic day! Keep in mind, the school cafeteria opens at 7:40 a.m. and serves breakfast every day. Please make sure that your child arrives to school each and every day on time!
