PTA Membership fees have remained unchanged for many years, despite the increase in fees owed to the National PTA organization. All PTA programs at Sandburg are funded by Fair Share Fees and additional donations. The PTA does not ask families to do any additional fundraising.

DIRECTORY

Sandburg PTA School Directory

Sandburg Middle School PTA offers our School Directory electronically to paid PTA members. We use Directory Spot to offer our information through an app. 

The app is very secure and only paid PTA members will have access. More information on the security features can be found here.

Each user will received an email from Directory Spot stating that you have just been added as a user for Sandburg PTA. See image below. You can then log in with your authorized email address and will set your password. 

If you already have a password, you do not have to do anything. Log in using your existing username and password and the new Sandburg Directory will be available to you.

If you are a new Directory Spot user, click the “set password” link in the email to set your password, download the DirectorySpot app as instructed and log in to begin using.

If you are a user on more than one Directory Spot directory such as Sandburg Middle School and York HS, you should now see a new icon on the bottom right of the app. It's labeled "Directories.” From there, simply select the school you want, toggling easily between the directories. 

The PTA administrator can update Directory Spot at any time throughout the year, so if you have changes in your information, please contact Lara Stavridis at larastavridis@yahoo.com.

It’s as simple as that!

Directory Spot Information

Here are a few features you can expect as well as answer to that all important question, "But what if I still want a hard copy?" 

  • The app will work on both Android and Apple phones.
  • Directory Spot provides updates in "real time" so when an address is updated on the master copy, it will automatically update on everyone's devices so you will always have the most current content.
  • You can download the directory on a laptop or computer so you will have access to the directory that way as well.
  • You can also print a complete, hard copy of the directory from your computer so you have this option if you would prefer it.
  • For those who do not have computer, phone, or printer access, the PTA will be happy to print a copy for any families who fall into this category.
  • It is secure, password protected, and Directory Spot takes precautions on their end to protect their users.
  • Teacher names, class lists, room numbers and other helpful information like this will be available via the app.
  • You will be able to send an email to a parent or teacher directly from the app.

We hope you find this new way of offering the directory helpful. Other schools and PTAs we know of have done this same thing with great success. As with any change, we know that some may not be fans of this option and we welcome your feedback. It's easy to print a hard copy and we can print one for those who are unable to do so on their own. Going electronic will help us conserve resources as well as offering the easiest way to do updates etc.
