Help third graders learn math the fun way! Teacher Melissa Begin wants to buy math manipulatives, or hand-held learning objects for the classroom, and she’s put together a proposal on DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit that helps teachers raise funds for supplies.
Volunteers needed for our bake sale on October 30! This is a fast event, and we need people from 2:00-3:00 pm. Contact William Bird at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a Halloween-themed bake sale, so we are asking for donations of Halloween-themed snacks and encourage all AmPark cooks to give us your spookiest baked goods. All goods will sell for one dollar.
AmPark is once again participating in the Big Apple Crunch! This is a fun, participatory citywide celebration of healthy eating. Businesses, schools, organizations and individuals in all five boroughs come together to take part in the “crunch heard ‘round the world!” Last year 1,000,000 New Yorkers ate an apple! This year we’ll try and beat our own record. As part of Food Day, the Big Apple Crunch is a way to celebrate food and get New Yorkers thinking about healthy, seasonal eating. We will be sending reminders home during the week of 10/20. Parents, please send in 2-3 apples with your child as a contribution to this healthy initiative! We’ll be biting into our apples around 12 noon!
AmPark’s own Dean Parker, last year’s PA president, was quoted in an article in the Riverdale Press. The article describes Chancellor Fariña’s plan to overhaul the evaluation system for schools. Read the article.
This year’s Back to School Night and Spaghetti Social was a great success! A special thanks to all the parents who cooked and served a delicious meal, and to the teachers for taking the time to introduce the year’s curriculum. It was a great way to kick off the school year.
AmPark had its first school sing on Monday, September 22. Parents of children in grades K, 2, and 4 were able to hear what their kids were working on with Josh. These school sings are always a lot of fun. Look for upcoming dates on this site or in your email.
