A Message from the PTA President

Hello Sangster Falcons,

Join us for our November ZOOM PTA meeting at 7pm, this Thursday!

Acting Principal Alison Jankovich will keep us updated on everything she can with regards to Sangster and FCPS.  She, Assistant Principal Jennifer Redford and Sangster staff have been working overtime to keep up with FCPS directives.  We wish all our admin, staff and our wonderful students all the best in these challenging weeks and months.  During the PTA meeting, Maggie Wilkerson will give an update on RULER, a new social emotional wellness program at Sangster.  Lastly, our annual PTA audit and IRS form 990 non-profit form will be up for review and approval by the general membership. See below for information on how to view those documents before the meeting.
