Hi Wildcat Parents-
The PTA has learned that another way we can help keep staff and students healthy at school is to provide cleaner air in the classrooms. The CDC has recommended HEPA air purifiers that exchange the air 4 or more times in an hour in addition to the HVAC system.
The PTA has consulted with several companies and picked units that are highly rated, easily maintained, affordable, and offer the CDC’s recommended air exchanges based on the classroom size.
Below is a link to the CDC article from February 2021 making the recommendation.

Most Importantly…We can’t do it without your support. If every family was able to contribute $30 per child they have attending the school as well as each staff member at the school we would easily meet our goal. While we understand that not every family can afford that we encourage you to reach out to YOUR extended community and family and ask for their help to keep our school as healthy as possible as we welcome everyone back to face-to-face learning. Even if your child is not coming back right now keep in mind these units will be in the classrooms moving forward to help keep the classroom air cleaner for all for years to come.
Are you able to give more…amazing?
No amount is too small.
Together I know we can do this by March 30th.
Here is the link to the GoFundMe we have set up.
The Sagamore Hills PTA
- See PTA Membership.
- Enrichment Fund
Give a tax-deductible donation to the PTA’s Enrichment Fund. We use this Fund to provide classroom supplies for teachers, STEM supplies for the STEM clubs, tools and supplies for the garden, and supplies and support for many other PTA-sponsored programs and events. We ask that every family contribute $75 for each child you have at Sagamore.
Help the PTA provide: school equipment, Accelerated Reader, cultural and academic events, field trip transportation, communications, and much more!
- Scholarship Fund
- The tax-deductible Scholarship Fund gives students the ability to participate in extracurricular programs that they might otherwise not be able to afford. Sagamore Hills teachers and administrators manage these scholarships.
Did you know that with as little as 5 minutes of your time, you could possibly double that donation? Hundreds of companies in the Atlanta area offer matching gift and volunteer grant programs. It’s a great way to double the giving!! Here’s a sample of many companies in the Atlanta area that offer these programs: Adobe, ADP, Aetna, American Express, AT&T, Bank of America, Boeing, Chubb, Coca-Cola, Deutsche Bank, Equifax, GE, Hewlett Packard, Home Depot, Houghton Mifflin, IBM, IHG, Kimberly-Clark, Merck, Merrill Lynch, Norfolk Southern, Pfizer, Prudential, Regions Financial, Sprint, Suntrust, UPS, Verizon and Time Warner.
