Welcome from James B. Sanderlin K-8 IB World School’s PTSA!

Whether this is your first year as a Sanderlin Sea Turtle or you are a long standing member of our community, we are so glad you are here. Each school year brings excitement and anticipation, along with the promise of learning and growth. This year we have the continued challenge of staying safe and connected.

The PTSA mission is simple – to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

Our PTSA does amazing things, but we need the support of our Sea Turtle families. Opportunities abound for parents, guardians, students, teachers, and everyone in between.

Our school is growing and we need your support now more than ever.


There are so many ways to get involved in our school, but the number one way is to become a member of the PTSA! A strong group is large and diverse, with many members throughout the grades. Our school needs the support of PTSA for everything, including increased communication, helping hands, fundraising, building improvements, and so much more. The stronger our group is, the more we can provide!

Here are some other ways you’ll be able to help through the year!

  • Fundraising
  • Volunteering
  • Attend Social Events
  • Teacher Wishlist Purchases
  • Business Sponsorhips
  • In-Kind Donations
  • Amazon Smile

School life can be confusing. Especially when you are a parent and your information is filtered back to you through a young student! See our handy glossary for a list of common terms heard at Sanderlin.
