Hi SAP Families,
We are starting to process survey results and are very thankful for those of you who have taken the time to respond to the survey. Your comments and experiences are valuable to our community.
If you have not had a chance to take the survey yet, please do. Click here.
We will be going through the results to do two things:
Identify commonalities across respondees. There are some things like school supplies (paper, art supplies, print outs) that we may be able to move the needle on at our local school level. There are other broader issues that if we feel we have enough consensus on, we plan to make some advocacy moves on behalf of our school community. The best place to meet up and discuss advocacy issues and nuts and bolts issues about how schooling is happening is with our Advisory Council which will be meeting this Tuesday, October 13th at 5PM via Zoom. Here is the link to the meeting: https://zoom.us/j/7641657735
We will use your feedback to begin planning ways to make our community stronger in these weird, weird times. SAPSA is usually a fundraising machine; this year we are hoping to harness that generous spirit and direct it to ways we can help our kids maintain a sense of connection despite the difficulties presented by the Covid pandemic and distance learning. The best place to engage with the nuts and bolts of building up our community events is by attending the SAPSA meeting at 7PM on Tuesday evening, October 13th also via Zoom. Here is the link to the meeting: https://zoom.us/j/7641657735
Here is a little word cloud I threw together with your responses so far. I find it moving and grounding and hope you do, too.
Please, if you are able, join together with us at one of these meetings. We would love to have you.
My best wishes to you and your families,
