Conferences start today, and we hope that you all have the opportunity to connect with your students' teachers. Thanks to everyone who helped restock the teachers' lounge with healthy snacks and treats during this busy week. As you visit the school for conferences, don't forget to check the Lost & Found - as you enter the school, you'll find it just inside the hallway that is to your right, by the stairwell. It's quickly filling up with lost winter gear!


Tomorrow is MN Give to the Max Day! This is a statewide outpouring of support for thousands of nonprofits and schools across Minnesota! It is a great time to support the school, with Give to the Max Day incentives that can help your donation go farther. Donations will be used for much-needed supplies, field trips, artist residencies in all classrooms, and other enriching activities.

Hello, SAP community! We'd love to see you at our SAPSA meeting next week - Tuesday, November 15th, in the school library. SAPSA meetings are a great way to learn about what's going on at the school and include planning many school events. This month we'll focus on the winter Read-A-Thon--a fun, enriching activity for the kids and an important fundraiser for the school. Join us to brainstorm ideas for a theme and principal challenge!


We hope to see a lot of familiar and new faces at the meeting!

Give to the Max Day: November 17th!

Give to the Max Day is a statewide outpouring of support for thousands of nonprofits and schools across Minnesota! GiveMN's Giving Holiday is scheduled for Thursday, November 17, but you don’t have to wait to support St. Anthony Park Elementary. Early Giving is underway at https://www.givemn.org/organization/Sapsa


Donations made before November 17th qualify SAPSA for cherished Golden Tickets. Golden Tickets are random chance drawings. Each gift you make during Give to the Max enters you to win money for the causes you support! Daily $500 Golden Tickets will be awarded each day during Early Giving, and prizes will be awarded every 15 minutes all day long during Give to the Max Day on November 17th!


Our direct giving goal for 2022-2023 is $6,000 and we expect a large portion of that to come from Give to the Max Day. This is also an excellent time to look into whether or not your employer matches donations.
