Your PTA is working for the Students & Teachers!
State funding continues to be cut, and our PTA is an integral part in keeping programs that educate and enrich our students. The SSPTA has picked up financial responsibility for the following due to State funding cuts:
Music & Art Education

SSPTA purchases and maintains technology for our students, including the computer lab, classroom chromebooks and IPads. SSPTA also funds access to many of the online tools our teachers use, including Imagine Math, Imagine Learning, Reflex Math and Brain Pop at a cost of $25,000+ per year, depending on annual needs.
