School - Activities - Welcome to the HSA

The Home School Association (HSA) provides an important link between school and home.  It is our version of a PTA.  It makes possible many activities that enrich the cultural, service and social opportunities of our families.  Also, it facilitates communication and helps parents become an integral part of their children's education.  Parents are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings and to volunteer for the many activities sponsored  throughout the year.  Contact Vicky Fernandez, President, at for any questions.

HSA Meetings and Dates
The HSA meetings are open to everyone!  If you have any ideas to share regarding the school and how to make it better for you and your children, we encourage you to attend to discuss your ideas/opinions towards the many areas and events that take place throughout the year.  It is also a nice way of keeping abreast of what HSA does for you, your child and for the school.  Please consider joining us!
