Home and School Association
The Home and School Association (HSA) Board would like to welcome every family at St. Peter R.C. School to the 2017-2018 school year. Membership in the HSA is automatic to all families with children enrolled at St. Peter’s School, so everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in HSA meetings, events, and programs. Not only will you learn what the students are doing, you will have many opportunities to meet other parents and families when you participate.
The HSA is aptly named because the group forms a partnership and facilitates communication between the students’ homes and school. The HSA organizes activities and fundraisers that are beneficial to everyone by supporting our school. We also try to make the events enjoyable for the entire family.
Some of the money raised by the HSA is used to pay for programs, activities, field trips, and to show the staff our appreciation, however most of the money raised through fundraising is paid to the parish to help defray the cost of running our school. We will raise this money through several different fundraisers. Therefore, we want and need your involvement with the HSA.
This year, we will hold the following fundraisers:
- Calendar Raffle
- My Best Auction
- Pancake Breakfast
- Easter Candy
- Ladies Luncheon
The HSA also participates in Scrips, Box Tops, Labels for Education, and parish fundraisers. In addition to the HSA fundraisers, the parish holds events, such as Lenten fish dinners and a 5K Run/Walk, and we help with those events.
The middle school will also be doing a few fundraisers to cover the cost of their biennial trip, dances, retreat, and other special activities. To raise funds for those events, students will be selling chicken BBQ in October and hosting a spaghetti dinner in February, as well as selling poinsettias at Christmastime. Please remember to support our middle school students. hey will be working hard to earn their rewards.
We are a family here at St. Peter R.C. School, so we all work together. If you are new to the school, the Board hopes to become acquainted with you better, and we look forward to seeing you around school and at our events.
Father David and our principal, Mrs. Ingham, lead the HSA in its efforts to serve the school. Also on the Board, we have two teacher representatives.
The Board is here for you. We are all here to make this the best year it can be for our children and St. Peter’s School. If you have a question or an idea that you would like to share, please tell us or bring it to a meeting. The HSA email is firstname.lastname@example.org or contact anyone on the Board directly.
Best wishes for a wonderful 2017-2018 school year!
