Below is the blog post from Second Chance Toys’ website featuring our school’s plastic toy collection!
For a second year in a row, PS 132 The Conselyea School, demonstrated the generosity of their school community with an incredible donation of 1,500 toys. Danielle Sanchez, school parent and organizer of the collection, made this happen in a big way, with lots of outreach and promotion to the parent community. As a result, a truckload of toys was donated to various Ascend Schools, to be used for indoor recess and by school clinicians with the children. That’s not all! There were more to be donated to P396K Special Education School, and Bushwick Parish United Methodist Church. Thankfully, our friends at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? were ready to volunteer with the pick-up and drop-off of this enormous collection of toys. We are so grateful to Danielle and her team of hardworking parents, Thea Z., Suzanne P., and Christian P., who dedicated their time to sorting toys, along with the support of PS 132’s Principal Ms. Lubeck, Parent Coordinator Ms. Bach, and Head Custodian, Tommy. What a winning team!!
A HUGE thank you to Councilman Antonio Reynoso and P.S. 132’s hardworking parents who helped our school secure Participatory Budget (PB) money. Through our win of PB money, we overhauled our Technology Lab with brand new Apple workstations. Below are pictures from our ribbon cutting ceremony!

Congratulations to our very own School Safety Officer, Office Little, who received a Certificate of Achievement from the NYPD Police Commissioner for 30 years of dedicated service! Talk about an achievement! We are so proud to have her in our school community!
Our awe-inspiring students, families, and community members generously donated their gently used plastic toys to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of underprivileged children! Upon starting our 2016 Toy Drive, our collection goal was 200 toys. Incredibly, we surpassed our goal in one day! After a week-long collection period, we are immensely proud to report that we collected 1,000 toys! Our students learned how their generosity impacted their peers and how their plastic recycling efforts benefited the environment. We are grateful to all those who contributed to our toy drive and are looking forward to next year’s drive. Read a blog post about our efforts on Second Chance Toys’ website!
