Welcome to Sabin!


To our new students and their loved ones, welcome to the Sabin School family! Here we are, approaching another year with optimism and grit. At Sabin’s helm, we are thrilled to have Chrysanthius Lathan in her new role as Principal! We are very lucky to be led by someone who already knows and loves Sabin as both an alum and educational leader. Ms. Lathan and her staff have been working double time to make our school safe for the in-person year, pivoting every day. Thank you staff and teachers! 


What is the PTA? Sabin’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is here to support families, teachers, and students as we learn and grow together. To build community, we put on events like Back to School Night, the Science Fair, and the End-of-Year Party. To raise money for our classrooms and student success, we hold fundraisers like Run for Sabin School. We also promote communication and idea-sharing among teachers, staff and families—and that means you! We hope you’ll check out our website, Facebook Page, and Instagram account (we’re also on Slack!). We try to make PTA meetings fun—please join us for our first one Sept. 15 via zoom. All are welcome.


Today and every day, Black Lives Matter at Sabin. No matter your child’s pronoun or background, they are a cherished member of this community. As a school, we are committed to be part of systemic and lasting change, and it begins with each one of our stories. We look forward to hearing yours!

2020-21 PTA Newsletter Archives:


Across the U.S., PTA comprises millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children, and the promotion of parent involvement in schools. Sabin School PTA prides itself on being a powerful voice for children; a relevant resource for families, communities, and teachers; and a strong advocate for public education. Membership in PTA is open to anyone. 

When parents and guardians are involved in their child’s education at home, they do better in school. When parents are involved in school, children go farther in school and the schools they go to are better!

We hope you can be involved this year... whether it’s simply signing up for a few programs, contributing an hour of your time at a school event, supporting fundraisers, or working regularly in your child’s classroom, there are myriad opportunities to be involved. Click here for a few ideas.


**Volunteers at any PPS must pass a background check and review a 'Child Abuse Prevention & Reporting and Adult Sexual Misconduct' PowerPoint before working with students. Information is here.**
