We are excited to announce that the HSA Christmas event this year is a school ice skating party at the downtown rink !

Save the date:
○ 100 skater limit - will need to have families register to attend to secure their spot because of the skater limit. There will soon be a google form for registration.
○ There will be a $2/skater fee to save your spot. You can still attend if you don’t plan on skating and will not need to pay the fee if you will not be on the ice.
○ The event will include skate rental, no one will have to pay for skate rental, the only fee will be $2/skater fee to secure a spot on the ice.
○ Concessions will be open, but HSA wants to have cookies or treats also.

 

The next dining for dollars will be at Chick-fil-A on December 13th. Mobile orders only!   Tell your Friends and Relatives. When you order: Mention you are with St John Catholic School.

Thanks for making it to the end! As always, please reach out with questions.

Going forward, volunteer signups will be on the Connect1 app, so please sign up for that if you haven't already! It's also a great way to notify us of talents or skills that you have to offer, and ways you'd like to be involved with HSA. https://app.connect1.io/volunteers/j6Oe91BF5

The Home and School Association, our version of PTO (Parent Teacher Organization), coordinates the parental support to St. John Catholic School’s activities, social functions, and fundraisers.

The HSA manages the operating fund and other assets of the Association for the use and benefit of the Association and School. 

Home & School Association General Meetings

Thursday, Jan 13th  Time: 7:00 PM

Location: Braymer Room (in Father Lynch Hall)

 

HSA is a parent support association, much like PTO or PTA. We raise funds to finance classroom items, school equipment, experiences, field trips, and much more. We also host social events for SJCS families and show our appreciation to staff throughout the year.

 

ALL parents, guardians, and teachers are welcome and encouraged to attend HSA meetings! Having a child at the school automatically makes you a member- there are no dues or membership requirements.

 

A typical meeting agenda includes hearing and voting on teacher funding requests, a financial update, planning for special events (social, hospitality, and fundraising), deciding on future projects, and hearing input and ideas from both board and general members.

 

Whether you’d like to volunteer to chair or support a project, make your voice heard on an HSA issue, or simply listen to hear how we are spending HSA money and time- you are welcome to participate at any level that works for you! We hope you’ll join us.

 

Meetings are generally held on the second Thursday of the month, unless there is a scheduling conflict (noted below). Masks are required at in-person HAS meetings at this time. There will also be a Zoom option for each meeting.
