Please support us! The Sandburg PTA sponsors many great events, programs, and more for our Sandburg students and staff, and we need your financial support to do it all.

Also, when you support the PTA, you get access to the very useful electronic Sandburg School Directory via the Directory Spot app! Sandburg's Directory Spot has been updated! If you have not Supported our PTA, this may be why you no longer have access to Directory Spot. 

Visit the Sandburg PTA Online Store to support us. You may also add a (much appreciated!) additional donation to the Sandburg PTA at the same time. We are striving for 100% support from families and teachers this year! Thank you in advance for supporting the PTA! Questions? Contact Laura Gardner.

Please note: All PTA programs at Sandburg are funded by parent donations; we don't do any large fundraisers so we are very dependent on families financially supporting the PTA. Supporting the PTA does *NOT* obligate you to any volunteer commitments - we use your financial support to help fund all of the PTA events.
