2019-2020 Volunteers of the Year – PTA

Each year, the Sandwich Public Schools honors someone who has contributed to making our schools great for kids.  This year, we honored the Sandwich Elementary PTA & the Sandwich STEM Academy/Sandwich High School PTSA.  As a group, the members of this group work collaboratively to raise funds to provide opportunitied for students that would not otherwise be available.  They also provide social and educational experiences for students at all of our schools. The PTA & the PTSA are an incredibly hard-working group with thoughtful and responsive leaders.
