HOME & SCHOOL ASSOCIATION
The Home and School Association is an organization of St. Thomas the Apostle School parents and stakeholders. All parents automatically join HSA when their children are enrolled at school. The HSA promotes community and the academic and spiritual welfare of the students in the school.
Through HSA, parents are encouraged to be involved in academic and extracurricular activities. The HSA provides social and informational activities to further develop the school community. Parents are invited to attend monthly meetings of the Home and School Leadership Council for input and community building. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm. The annual membership fee is $15 and it is included in the Materials Fees paid at the time of registration.
Home and School is governed by the HSA Leadership Council. HSA Leadership Council consists of President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. HSALC positions are voluntary and available to the general parent population every 3 years. HSALC parent volunteers do not receive monetary compensation. HSALC parent volunteers are expected to fulfill their 20 hour volunteer requirement as mandated by the handbook. The HSALC parent volunteers must represent STA handbook standards of conduct at all times. The HSALC meets with Principal and Vice Principal regularly during the school year to go over community events and make sure all events are in accordance with Handbook policies. The HSALC helps facilitate communication of community issues to school administration using the monthly Parent Coffee platform. The HSALC is NOT a governing body of the school, and they are NOT involved in any decisions regarding curriculum, school finances, and school personnel. They are only responsible for planning HSA events and coordinating these events with school administration. Any money raised from HSA events goes toward funding future HSA events.
