We rely on the support of many parents who volunteer on our committees to ensure that we are providing the best learning environment for our students. We encourage you to volunteer and help support the school.

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

The PTO organizes events and activities for the students.

These events strengthen school community, raise funds, and provide programs to benefit all students. We also host events that are open to the public (i.e. Halloween Party, Adult Evening Social). We welcome you to join our group and support our events!

Marketing Committee

The theme for the 2014-15 Marketing Committee is to Understand and Connect.

The committee's goals for 2014-15 are to assess the needs of our target community and to develop a strategic marketing plan to reach out to parents whom the school can serve.

The committee welcomes anyone with experience in marketing research, design, or an interest in helping to communicate the unique value of our school within the Armenian community of Boston.

Health Committee

The Health Committee at the SSAES provides active leadership in the identification and dissemination of best practices in school health and resources for the school’s policy makers.

We discuss and recommend proactive measures to help prevent the spread of contagious diseases at the school and promote good health practices such as hand washing, flu vaccines and healthy diets.

Over the years, we have revised the sick child policy and formalized a lice check policy. This year we will be talking to the students about hygiene in a fun and interactive setting! We are available to help with overseeing the food allergy policy and welcome any questions from our parents on school health related issues.
