    "Raising children is expensive. Adding $10 for the PTA membership and $20 a couple times for fundraising is a drop in the bucket. ALL the kids benefit from the teacher aids in the lower grades-- K-2 (paid ENTIRELY by the PTA) a music teacher (paid ENTIRELY by the PTA) the halloween party (paid ENTIRELY by the PTA) field trips, before and after school care, classroom supplies, the student talent show, teacher grants and more, all supplemented by the PTA. The many families that contribute very little --in time and/or money-- are made up by the families that contribute hundreds each year. The $10 charge at the halloween party was just for food. The activities were open to all, which by the way, took hours of work by dozens of volunteers. Regardless of who donates money or volunteers their time, all the children benefit. Don't have a computer at home? Send your child's teacher a note asking how he/she is doing. Or stop by the library to visit your online parent portal. Either way is free. Yes, its hard to say no to our children sometimes. But put it in perspective. Visit a PTA meeting. Check out public schools without an active PTA. THEN decide where you want to send your child."

    "Sauganash School is an ideal example of how underfunded public schools can thrive, excel - consistently - with a strong partnership between teachers, faculty, students and parents. But it is only possible if everyone plays a part. Plain and simple, there is a HUGE funding gap and without parent support (PTA membership is $10 - the same as 2 coffees or a 1/4 tank of gas) no teacher aides, music, and more. Our kids deserve this, and most (though I recognize not all) families in our community can come up with that. A previous writer had an issue with teachers. My daughter has had six teachers, each of whom gave her individualized attention even in huge classes, and all have gone above and beyond to meet my needs when I asked - nicely. There is a small-school family feel here... kids look out for each other; teachers and staff are nothing short of heroic in comforting kids with serious special needs or those just having a rough day. The compassion is astonishing. Not impressed by warm-fuzzies? Look at the numbers. We're in the top 20 CPS elementary schools, including selective enrollment and our scores are consistently excellent. This is a neighborhood treasure."

    "Sauganash is a wonderful school. I can afford to send my child elsewhere but we chose to live in this neighborhood in large part because of Sauganash School. To ther reviewer below,. do you think it's free to put on a Halloween party? Well, it's not. The PTA has to raise funds to pay the expenses. But more importantly than that are all the incredible things the PTA does with the funds they raise. Teachers aids and after school programs cost money and someone has to pay for it. If you don't want to then don't but stop your whining about ac active PTA working hard to raise needed money for our neighborhood school."

    "Blaming and whining...Don't blame your child poor performance on other people. My son is 6th grade student, he is welcomed every single day and loves his school and his teachers. The principal and her team are on top of everything. Don't forget....PTA show support for their kid's school. Five stars from me."

    "To the previous poster who made the comment about bribery, here's the deal from a parent who knows...no family will be turned away from the PTA halloween party, whether they are members or not..also if your child is one of the lower grades k and 1st grade, the PTA pays for the teachers's aides and the music teacher for the entire school..I also believe that there is an aide in the 2nd grade that the PTA pays for as well..Family Fun NIght is a free PTA event that will welcome all families at the end of the school year...so yes, the PTA does solicit money for the salaries of 5 teachers aides, a music teacher, and the PTA always ask parents to join to show support for their kid's school..your participation in Football Mania is optional....don't sell raffle tickets if you don't want to..but join the PTA to help improve the environment that your child spends the bulk of his/her time in...also, just a reminder that surrounding area schools such as Farnsworth, Wildwood, Edgebrook, etc, do some type of fundraising as well..I hope you join the PTA and become involved so you can see where the money goes and what it is used for....maybe your experience with the school would improve"
