Covid-19 Vaccines Now Available for Children Ages 5-11
Vaccines are now available for elementary school children from ages 5 to 11. Minnesota has set up a website dedicated to making information about how and why to get your child vaccinated clear and accessible. You can visit that website here: https://mn.gov/covid19/vaccine/vaxforkids/

Give to the Max Day: November 18th!
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 18, 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 18th 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 18!
Our direct giving goal for 2021-2022 is $11,600 and we expect a large portion of that to come from Give to the Max Day. This is an excellent opportunity to look into whether or not your employer matches donations.
Saint Paul Public Schools Sustainability Engagement Survey
Saint Paul Public Schools recognizes the need for action on conserving resources and protecting our environment. SPPS is currently taking great steps towards increasing energy conservation and efficiency. Energy use and many sustainability issues are tied closely to climate change, and we recognize this is important to our community. Sustainability requires collaboration and collective action. It is crucial to involve students, parents, staff, and community in the process of planning and implementing solutions to address climate change. It should take fewer than 10 minutes to complete this survey. Your responses will be used to help define what sustainability topics are important to the SPPS community and who is essential to be involved. Click here to begin. Thank you in advance for your participation!
