SAPA

SAPA's mission is to promote a closer cooperation and unity of spirit among parents, faculty, and students by involving and enabling all parents to be of service to the school and the community.

What is SAPA?

The St. Andrew’s Parents’ Association, more commonly referred to as SAPA, is an energetic, active organizational community made up of all parents of St. Andrew’s students. Our purpose is to facilitate parental understanding of the school’s goals and achievements, and to provide enrichment, parental support, and financial assistance to all aspects of the school.
 
SAPA has three major fundraisers each year: Farm to Table, Arts on the Green, and Starry Night.  Funds from these events directly support our school where tuition proceeds fall short.  SAPA provides the school with both tangible goods, such as new furniture, supplies, and signage, as well intangible support, such as providing payment for speakers at upper school assemblies and providing funds for parent functions.  SAPA contributes to the annual fund, and has pledged $30,000 a year to the school’s capital campaign for the next five years.  SAPA recently fulfilled a $200,000 pledge to the Forward Saints campaign.
 
Additionally, SAPA funds also support several community outreach efforts and events, including: Earth Angels, Safe Saints, Faculty Hospitality, the Used Uniform and Book Sale, Classroom and Grade parties, and Back to School Night.  These smaller efforts and events, which are entirely produced through the efforts of SAPA volunteers, strengthen our school and community, and provide wonderful opportunities for interaction with teachers and school leaders.

SAPA recognizes that we are a diverse group of parents with different talents, interests, and time commitments: some of us work outside the home, others not; some of us run our own businesses or manage busy practices, and others have full schedules ferrying children from one extracurricular activity to another.  Regardless of personal situation, opportunities abound for support and involvement in the SAPA community.
 
For those of you who have volunteered with SAPA in the past, thank you – your support is critical to the success of St. Andrew’s!  For those of you who’ve yet to participate in SAPA, please join us in making the best school in Mississippi even better!

SAPA Fundraisers

FARM TO TABLE

Now in its 9th year, Farm to Table is a multi-course food and wine feast highlighting locally sourced ingredients prepared by a nationally recognized chef. Past events featured the executive chefs from Blackberry Farm, Seafood R'evolution, City Grocery, Walker’s Drive-In, and The Manship. 
 
Farm to Table raised over $34,000 for St. Andrew’s in 2020.
 
ARTS ON THE GREEN – April 9, 2022
 
SAPA’s biggest fundraiser each year is Arts on the Green, a family festival held each spring and boasting something for everyone: a children’s green with activities for kids of all ages; a student fashion show; a garden tea party; artisan craft booths; auction with baskets of goodies contributed by each grade; and so much more! Arts on the Green is open to everyone.  
 
STARRY NIGHT – April 8, 2022
 
Starry Night is the annual SAPA parent party, showcasing the diversity of the St. Andrew’s community through food, music, and décor. In previous years, SA families and friends host tables that represent a favorite destination, style of cuisine, or family heritage, providing tasting portions of characteristic dishes. The evening is an opportunity to mingle with other parents, and to experience all the different cultures that represent the St. Andrew’s tapestry of life.
