We would like to congratulate Kara Davies as our Parent Volunteer of the Month!

Kara voluntarily worked all four days of registration. She was kind, helpful, efficient, and willing to work the picture station without help from any other staff member. She even was willing to move her personal schedule around to help us because we were short staffed. Her assistance at registration was integral to making registration a success this year, and we are grateful to have had her help!

Dear Santiago Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! The Santiago PTSA is proud to continue the work of supporting the teachers, students, and administration of Santiago Charter Middle School.  It truly is a community effort that relies on the spirit of volunteerism, and the generosity of time, talents, and treasure from our entire Santiago family.

To that end, we hope that you will consider joining the Santiago PTSA this year.

Please use the following link to join:

Membership Dues are the primary fundraising method for the Santiago Charter Middle School PTSA. Over the years, we have been able to meet various non-federally funded needs of our teachers, students and administrators. We would love to continue to provide the extra help throughout this year as well, but we’ll need the help of our community to do it.

We thank you for your support, and we wish all the Santana families, students, faculty, and staff the very best. Elizabeth Dipre

President Santiago PTSA 2022-2023

¡Hola familias de Santiago!

Esta es la Sra. Gonzales con una pregunta importante a mediados de semana. ¿Sabían que mañana es el día de entrega de nuestra recaudación de fondos? ¿Sabían que estamos a mitad de camino de nuestra meta? ¿Sabían que si todos donan por lo menos $20, estaríamos muy cerca de alcanzar nuestra meta? ¡Nuestra recaudación de fondos sin complicaciones es especial porque el 100% del dinero donado va directamente a nuestra escuela -ninguna compañía- y el 100% del dinero recaudado es para apoyar a nuestros estudiantes este año!

Estamos muy orgullosos de nuestra familia de Santiago, y aún más agradecidos por su generosidad. De antemano, ¡gracias por sus contribuciones! ¡Incluso aceptamos Venmo! Usted puede encontrar nuestro enlace Venmo en el sitio web de nuestra escuela en ¡Vamos Santanas! ¡Sigue siendo RAD!




Favor de leer todos los detalles para empezar el año escolar 2022-2023 en las noticias de Santiago.

¡Que tengan una buena semana, Santanas!

Las cuotas de membresía son el principal método de recaudación de fondos para la PTSA de Santiago Charter Middle School. A lo largo de los años, hemos podido satisfacer varias necesidades no financiadas por el gobierno federal de nuestros maestros, estudiantes y administradores. Nos encantaría continuar brindando ayuda adicional durante este año también, pero necesitaremos la ayuda de nuestra comunidad para hacerlo.

Le agradecemos su apoyo y deseamos lo mejor a todas las familias, estudiantes, profesores y personal de nuestra familia escolar.
