We (Still) Need Volunteers
We are doing great filling up the volunteers spots needed for the busy month ahead. Thank you to everyone who is pitching in; your help is so appreciated.
That said, it is an absolute truth that many hands make light work, and we would love it if you would contribute your time and lighten the load. Thank you!
Plant Sale Volunteers (May 10-12, day)
Still need wagons on Tuesday, cashiers and clean-up on Thursday
Spring Carnival Volunteers (May 13, 3-9PM)
We are very excited that the Jr ROTC from Como High School will be helping out at the Spring Carnival. Isn't that terrific? But we still really need several adult volunteers to help out with the raffle and and especially with clean-up.
Can't volunteer, but want to help? Sponsor a raffle basket: https://sapsamn.square.site/
Book Fair Volunteers (May 11-13, Various times)
Right now the greatest need for all three events is clean-up.
School Picnic Volunteers (May 12, 10-12)
Please click here to RSVP and you will be prompted to also volunteered! We are looking for two pairs of volunteers to help coordinate the sale of lunch tickets. Each pair will be stationed at the side door of the cafeteria, taking money and giving tickets to use in the lunch line. Lunch serving time will be from 10:00am-12:10pm and there are two volunteer shifts.
SAP Spring Carnival
The carnival is a week away! We would like to know how many folks will be eating dinner with us. As a reminder, we will have franks, chips, fruit and drinks on hand. Families are encouraged to bring a picnic or purchase food from food trucks at the event if they prefer.
Would you please fill out this quick survey so we can order the right amount of food? Thank you!
SAPSA Annual Plant Sale
Spring is finally here. Our annual plant sale is next Wednesday and Thursday at Langford Park from 8AM-7PM. Pick up your annuals, perennials, herbs and veggies for the growing season ahead AND support our wonderful school. Here is something new and exciting about this year: Master Gardeners will be at the sale to share their wisdom with customers on both afternoons.
Spring Carnival Raffle!
The spring carnival is just around the corner and we can't wait to have our community together at our amazing school. In addition to fun games, food, races and a children's raffle we will be having a raffle for the adults as well. Would you consider sponsoring a basket? It is one of the ways we are able to make this event free for the kiddos. Thank you so much.
Or if you would like to donate a tangible item(s) please contact Amy Raddatz at
Scholastic Book Fair
The SAP Scholastic Book Fair is back in action! Our presale is the morning of Friday May 13th from 7:15-8:30 am, and our sale is during the carnival inside the library from 5:00-8pm. That Friday is a “family Friday,” so feel free to come on in with your student. And hey! 50% of all book fair proceeds go directly to the school, which makes it a great choice for the greater good.
If you can’t make it to the fair (because you are so busy volunteering - wink, wink), you can order online at https://www.scholastic.com/bf/sap from May 5th through the 16th, and with any online orders SAP receives 50%. If you order online we can also deliver the books to your child’s classroom for an awesome surprise.
Don’t have cash or a check? Don’t want to send your student with cash on the day of the presale/carnival? You can set up an eWallet, a cashless payment for your student. Go to https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bookfairs/parent-how-it-works.html?fairID=5082202. You can set an amount for your student to spend, and they only need to give us their name and teacher’s name. Any money left will be refunded to your card.
Advisory Council will meet via Zoom at 5pm on Tuesday, May 10th. Community info session on budget date/time will be determined at that meeting.
SAPSA Monthly Meeting will be in person at the school library at 7PM on Tuesday, May 17th.
