GOLDEN APPLE AWARD
PS 132 wins Honorable Mention in the 2013 Golden Apple Awards. Every year, DSNY Golden Apple Awards offer cash prizes in three TrashMasters! contests for schools in New York City (both public and private), grades K–12.
Our school won Honorable Mention - TrashMasters! Team Up to Clean Up for their efforts in creating the Betty Smith Reading Garden at the Brooklyn Public Library, Leonard Street Branch.Every
year, our students return to the garden to weed, plant and maintain the
outdoor space so that families may enjoy an outdoor reading space for
the summer. This service learning project is the culmination of year
long instruction in Character Education with Ms. DeStefano.
TrashMasters! Team Up to Clean Up rewards cash prizes to schools that conceive, design, and implement innovative cleanup, beautification, or reclamation projects in their boroughs.TrashMasters! Team Up to Clean Up
provides students with invaluable hands-on experience in caring for
their communities, and increases awareness of their direct impact on the
environment. Our school received $1250.00 to continue our efforts with the garden and future gardening projects in our community.
