Staff Appreciation

Getting gifts to teachers and staff this year is a little tricky. Make it easier on yourself by donating to our staff gift fund. We’ll be able to use the money to purchase gifts for all of the teachers and staff to show them our appreciation!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year:

The PTSA is here for SAST not just during the ordinary, fun times but also during these extraordinary times. Although our sweet school is now spilt between digital and on-site, and our volunteer efforts cannot currently look the same as usual, we’re still here, working to support SAST families and staff.

  • We continue to accept and review mini-grant requests from SAST teachers and staff. These provide funding for learning materials, classroom supplies, and professional development.
  • We are discussing ways the PTSA can help our families safely connect and build community.
  • We will continue to shower our teachers with support and love.

Stay tuned for more information. Please stay safe and balanced. And please feel free to reach out to us at with questions, comments, requests, etc. This time of social distancing will one day be a memory. When our SAST family can be together again we will have many more fun events to share.

Campus Clean Up

Our wonderful campus is in need of some love! If you’re able to help us with any of these action items on a weekend or a weekday after 6pm, please sign up here and email Ashley to let her know when you’re coming. We need people with pressure washers, people with carpentry skills, and people willing to put in a little elbow grease!

Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have quesitons about these to-dos. Please keep in mind that social distancing and our campus-wide mask policy apply. 

For questions, please contact Ashley Arrington

The SAST PTSA couldn’t do what we do without the help and financial contributions from our amazing parents! With this support, the PTSA has been able to:

  • Expand and improve our gorgeous play spaces.
  • Provide mini-grants to teachers: helping fund field trips, classroom materials (rockets!), and professional development
  • Host fun and enriching activities such as Family Reading Night, Family Movie Night, Game Night, and Skate Night
  • Bring enriching programs such as the Reflections Art Program
  • Make our teachers feel loved every Teacher Appreciation Week
  • Fuel our kids with healthy snacks during testing
  • Provide snacks to our teachers when they stay late for meetings

Do you have special interests or skills you’d like to share with us? Let us know! Are you limited in where or when you can volunteer? Let us help match you with a volunteer position that best suites you. Volunteering is a fantastic way to get to know other parents, show your children that you support their school, and keep these events running! We have volunteer opportunities for everyone: on-campus, and off, before and after school hours.

Our Goals:

  • Community Building
  • Provide Free Family Programing to Promote Family Engagement
  • Raise Funds to Support Teachers and Students
  • Educate and Inform Parents on Issues Facing Charter Schools
