Shop + Support


Our PTA focuses on community-building, not fundraising, but we do raise money to directly support students and teachers and to put on school events.


Fully half of our budget this year is committed to an extraordinary full-scale arts program, developed in partnership with MOCHA. After a tough year at home, we are thrilled to think of our kids engaged in tactile projects in a creative, supportive environment. We hope you will consider supporting this exceptional program, as well as direct aid to our school community.



There are many ways you can be involved in helping Sankofa United be the best it can be! Check out the different opportunities to engage with our PTA or our volunteer committees. Everyone's skills, talents and interests are welcomed and encouraged. Help us create a school where every child can grow and thrive!
