The Association of Parents and Teachers

Welcome to the APT!

The APT exists to support and enhance the school community through a strong and responsive parent/teacher structure. It’s comprised of all parents/guardians of enrolled students, teachers, administrators, and school staff. The head of school represents our teachers and staff and is a voting member of the APT Executive Board. 

There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer and get involved — from helping support a specific event or taking a shift with Steve & Aggies to serving on a committee or joining our Board. Your time and talents would be greatly appreciated! Volunteering is a wonderful way to support our students, faculty, and staff, as well as meet other Saints in the community. 

We invite you to explore our many programs and events, including our Shopping Program, the Fall Family Festival, Teacher Appreciation Days, Spring Festival, and our exciting fundraiser, the Annual Spring Party and Live Auction. The APT organizes a Welcome Pot Luck and promotes class-level parent socials in the weekly APT section of the SSSAS Dispatch. Every other year we offer a Speaker Series. 

We couldn't offer all we do without the volunteer support of parents, faculty, and staff, and the financial sponsorship of our families. We ask all families to voluntarily pay APT dues of $50. To see how the funds are used to support our teachers and students, read last year's APT Allocations Report.

The APT Allocations

It has been an exciting year to be a part of the APT. Because of your generosity and kindness, the APT was able to contribute $250,000 in the allocations process!  We approved 100 percent of the requests submitted by our wonderful SSSAS leaders and staff from the Upper, Middle, and Lower Schools, including over $80,000 to the APT Holden Summer Fellowships and scholarship funds. This year, in addition to providing the opportunity for author visits on all three campuses, we were proud to provide our teachers with the funds requested to seek additional math training and curriculum development.
In addition to these awesome contributions, because of your support, we were also able to provide many other gifts to the school, including, PCR and Gel Electrophoresis System for DNA Analysis; art displays around the three campuses; a shaded outdoor art studio; a school subscription to FlipGrid; laboratory equipment for Upper School science programs; Vernier Circuit boards for AP Physics; supplies for Saints Mission Skills activity; Yabla video platform in foreign languages; a membership to UpCycle; “Stories of God at Home: A Godly Play Approach”; occupational therapy and sensory integration tools; visual/spatial games and activities for Lower School math studies; mosaic making supplies for 8th grade; math resource books; storage and supplies for our kindergarten gardening unit; wood, metal, and stone sculpture tools; materials and supplies for beautification of the Upper School Dining Hall; a Sinclair Library book truck; and Adirondack chairs to provide more outdoor student gathering spaces on our campuses.  We are proud that, through your support, we were able to be so generous!
