We know everyone is leading busy lives. We get it. But we want to let you know of the many ways you can participate without imposing too much on your time.
The Giving Campaign: Please give as generously as you can afford. This is our most efficient, cash-drive fund raising that goes directly to the SAS program, teachers, and students. We try to fund teacher-requested items so that, as generous as they are, they don’t have to dig into their own pockets to provide classroom materials. Look for the letter in your mail in the middle of September.
FMSAS General Meetings: ONE time a month for ONE hour (or longer, as needed). The board works very hard behind the scenes to organize these meetings to bring you and your family information. Please show your interest and appreciation by attending at least two meetings per year. We do get audited by LAUSD when we are up for renewal of our Exemplary Status, and one of the things they look at is PARENT PARTICIPATION. It’s not a throw-away phrase. Please attend a meeting and be sure to sign in.
Meetings will be held in Zoom, and notifications of meeting dates will be sent out monthly. Please join the mailing list to ensure you receive these notifications.
CONNECTIONS: If you, your family or friends have a business or restaurant connections that would be willing to donate items or money to our nonprofit corporation, let us know. We can generate a donation letter with our Tax ID number. We co-host the Annual Teachers’ Holiday Breakfast in December. We host the SAS Awards Ceremony in the spring.
TIME: The most precious commodity. But if you’d like to volunteer at an event, please email us at email@example.com and let us know your availability. We just had a Pazzo Gelato FUNdraiser, and sometimes we could use an extra hand. If you’ve been to the SAS Awards Ceremony and want to help with the food, etc., let us know.
