Dear AmPark Parents,
Have you searched all over the house, the houses of friends and relatives, in the car, under the beds, in backs of closets, for that beautiful new sweatshirt... jacket... water bottle... hat... lunch bag... etc.?
Well you haven't looked everywhere until you've looked here at AmPark!!! Please stop by our AmPark Lost & Found or ask your children to take a look because it's getting chillier everyday and the gorgeous layers of children's clothing are piling up here! Our AmPark PA has also established an IG page of Lost & Found items as a resource for you: https://instagram.com/amparkparentsassociation?igshid=MXRiY2poOXg3aGk0eA==
Please check it out here and see some pictures below. Maybe you'll see what you're looking for there and if not, we hope that you'll drop by and finally find that lovely thing you've been searching for! Thank you!

AmPark was thrilled to host a visit with our State Senator, Robert Jackson, this week, alongside members of our Parent Association. Students were delighted to meet him as well and he was gracious enough to even sign an autograph or two! Please see resources provided by the Senator's Office below.
Dear AmPark Community,

Nearly 3 million New Yorkers, or 50% of New York City households, struggle to make ends meet. AmPark would like your help with doing our part to address this need.
We will be accepting canned donations from November 6, 2023 - December 8, 2023.
Canned fruit Macaroni and Cheese (packaged)
Canned vegetable Juice packs
Canned beans Hot and cold cereal (packaged, family-sized)
Donations can be dropped off in the first-floor lobby or Ms. Josie’s room 10120.
