About Us

Home & School Association

Welcome to HSA!

The Home and School Association is a parent-run organization established to meet the cultural, social, and peripheral financial needs of our school as prioritized by school administration. The HSA promotes and sponsors fundraising activities in order to help provide and improve the quality of our educational programs and school life. You are enrolled as a member of the HSA with payment of your annual HSA dues ($50).


The purpose of the Home and School Association is two-fold. First, the HSA strives to strengthen the network between home and school. This means we will strive to improve communication, provide assistance where needed, and assist the administration in reaching the objectives and goals associated with the mission of the school. Second, the HSA provides the little extras. Our fundraising efforts provide the means to enhance the learning experience of all St. Mary Catholic School students. The HSA coordinates events and activities throughout the school year that are fun for parents and kids alike and are designed to boost our school spirit and enhance our school relationships.

Why Get Involved?

There are many reasons to become involved with the Home and School Association.  The most important is what research tells us, when parents are involved with their children’s education at home, they do better at school.  When you are connected to your child’s school, your children are more connected to school.
