What opportunities for parent involvement exist?
Families are welcome and key partners in student learning. Everyone is a member of SAPSA, the school’s parent teacher organization It raises thousands of dollars and recruits hundreds of volunteers every year in its mission to support, encourage, and enhance the learning at St. Anthony Park School.
Because the volunteer base is so strong, SAP Elementary offers more than the usual amount of school enrichment opportunities. For example, it takes many volunteer hours each spring during the annual “Celebration of Talent,” a trio of events that includes an art show, publication of the literary journal, and the Talent Show. Last year, volunteers helped hang over 350 pieces of student artwork in the hallways, assisted in the publication of student essays and poems and produced the evening talent show that featured dancers, comedians, musicians, magicians, jugglers and actors.
