APT Annual Events & Programs

The 2020-2021 school year will be unlike previous years, but we will still be a strong Saints community. The SSSAS Association of Parents and Teachers plans to meet virtually and perhaps in person once volunteers are back on campus. Anyone is welcome to attend our meetings and may find the details in the online school calendar. Please check it regularly for the most up-to-date information. Although many of the traditional events put on by parent volunteers will be different this year, we look forward to working with SSSAS and our parent community to provide programming and be a resource that supports our parents and teachers alike.

Explore our many and varied events and programs. We have volunteer opportunities for everyone! Even if you have just a couple of hours to spare for one event, the APT welcomes you to join in our mission and get to know more members of our community.

 Join the APT in our "Spring Break Read." This compilation of titles, books, movies and podcast in three main categories: parenting and social/emotional child development, racial justice, and technology and kids, offers parents insight into issues all families encounter. Check out the list of titles at this link.

Steve & Aggies Café

A very popular place! Steve & Aggie’s has two locations at the Upper School. The Café is located near the Upper School gym and the Athletic Concession is operated from a trailer between the gym and the football field. The Café is open on school day afternoons (2:00-4:00 p.m.) to provide great food and snacks to students participating in sports or other after-school activities. Either the trailer or the Café is open for most varsity home events. Volunteering at Steve & Aggie's is a great way to meet other parents and students and is open to parents with students in any grade. Contact: Cathy Tyler and Ali Lipton

Faculty & Staff Appreciation

We love our dedicated faculty and staff. The APT sponsors fall and spring lunches on each campus to show our faculty and staff how much their efforts are appreciated. Volunteers are needed to help plan and offer special treats to celebrate them. Contacts: Upper School: Natalie Gunn,; Middle School: Nicole Liffrig Molife,; Lower School: Kim Speed,

Shopping Programs

Who doesn't love to shop? Imagine helping the school at the same time! The APT shopping program is a year-round initiative that raises funds by participant shopping. Through participation in a variety of different partnerships (, Harris Teeter, Lands’ End and AmazonSmile), money is raised when parents, grandparents and alumni associate their grocery card numbers or accounts with programs that benefit our school. Volunteers needed to assist with promoting the program. Learn more and sign up now! Contact: Suann Dunn,

Multicultural Nights

Help us with these highly anticipated events. Every year the school celebrates the many rich dimensions of our students, families, faculty, and staff through several events throughout the year.  The school community highly values these opportunites to share their stories, travels, roots, foods, music, dances, and traditions with one another.  One of the most popular events is the Lower School Multicultural Celebration and Dance Party which will take place on Friday, March 13, from 6-8pm in Daniel Gym. Please join us for great food, engaging cultural displays and an end-of-the-evening dance party for all ages.  We would love to have you there.  Contact: Jacqueline Bourgeois,

Used Uniform Sales

The Used Uniform Committee collects gently used uniforms for resale at a significant discount. Everybody benefits! Volunteers are needed to assist with promoting the program.
