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!

Hello Santiago Families!

From our Santiago family to yours, we want to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving, and a relaxing, well-deserved vacation!

Here are your updates for this week– on a Monday!

  1. As the weather gets colder, please make sure your student has a Santiago sweatshirt for class time, and a PE sweatshirt. For more uniform information, please refer to our school’s website. There is a link to “Santana Expectations” there for your reference at any time.

  2. This week is an ASB Spirit Week with activities being held at lunch. Students are allowed to show school spirit by wearing a flannel shirt to school on Friday, along with uniform bottoms. 

  3. PTSA meets at 6:30 PM this week. The meeting is virtual, and you can find the link in our newsletter. Please join us!

  4. Friday, 11/18, is a minimum day, with dismissal at 12:35 PM.

  5. And finally, in order to celebrate Thanksgiving, there is no school from November 21-25. School resumes at the normal 8:00 AM start time on Monday, November 28th.

If you have any questions about the week, please give our office a call anytime.

Have a great week, Santanas!



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.

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
