From your Sandpiper PTA

Welcome to our incredible Sandpiper community!

We hope this message finds you thriving and full of zest for the journey of parenthood! At Sandpiper School, we cherish the vibrant community of families that come together to create a nurturing environment for our children to learn, grow, and flourish. Now, we're extending an invitation to you, our extraordinary parents, to join us in making a difference within our school community. 

Volunteering at school is not just about lending a helping hand; it's about fostering a deeper connection with your child's education and creating lasting memories together. Whether it's assisting in the classroom, organizing events, contributing to fundraising efforts, or sharing your unique skills and talents, there are countless ways for you to get involved and leave your mark.

By volunteering, you not only support the school but also serve as role models for our young learners, demonstrating the values of compassion, generosity, and community spirit. Your involvement sends a powerful message to our children – that education is a collaborative effort, and we are all committed to their success.

We hope you're join us in shaping a brighter future for our children and our community. 

With gratitude and warmth,

Sandpiper School PTA

PTA general association meetings are held in September, November, January, March and May of each school year. These meetings are an excellent way of staying up to date on school events and important dates, and meeting other Sandpiper parents. Principal Higgins also often provides a Principal's update on the administrative end. The PTA Meetings provide a forum for parents to speak on topics and ask questions related to the PTA as well. We hope to see you at the next one!

About your Sandpiper PTA

The Sandpiper PTA is composed of, run and managed by, volunteer parents and members of the school staff. We place great importance in the opportunity to create and sustain a school culture where every student and family feel welcome and thrive. We hope you will join us as we work together with the wonderful staff to make Sandpiper School the best it can be for our children and school community.

Along with the other six PTAs in our district, we have joined with SchoolForce to create the Education Commitment Campaign (ECC), where parents and guardians can make a convenient, combined donation to support the quality education your child deserves. Your donation to the ECC funds your child’s school supplies, instructional materials, academic programs (such as Art, Music, and Physical Education), staff (such as reading specialists and school counselors, librarians), field trips, parent education nights, community events, and so much more. The ECC only runs through October 31 of each year, so that PTAs can make an impact during this school year and so that SchoolForce can make funding commitments to BRSSD for next year, allowing the district to make critical staffing decisions. We encourage you to commit to educational excellence in our district and donate today.
