HOME & SCHOOL

home & school

Saint Andrew’s Home and School Association (HASA) supports the school by volunteering time to classroom activities, providing financial support to classroom curriculum and implementing school community programs and events. HASA, (similar to PTO), is the primary parent-facilitated group in the St. Andrew School community. Its members are parent volunteers who work with the school to enrich the lives of students, their families, teachers, and staff.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, HASA is not able to host many of the events this year.

MEMBERSHIP
HASA membership is $30 and includes a copy of the St. Andrew School Directory. Your payment of membership dues is very much appreciated and helps kick start the year!

SOCIAL FUNCTIONS

DIRECTORY This committee is responsible for publishing a listing of the families of St. Andrew School children who have agreed to have their information in print. The directory includes: last names, parents’ names, address, phone number, email address, child’s name, and child’s homeroom. Also, in the directory is a list of teachers, room parents, all Home & School committee chairs, and directions to surrounding schools used for sporting events.

FAMILY AMBASSADORS This committee pairs each new student with a classroom buddy—a student specially chosen to help new students transition to St. Andrew School. Our student ambassadors introduce new students to their classmates and support them as they get acclimated to their classrooms, the lunchroom and at recess.

GET AIR PARTIES These parties are held twice a year, fall and spring. It’s a great time for kids to skate or jump while the parents socialize. Fun for the whole family!

SOCIAL COMMITTEE The planning of refreshments and light snacks for any Home and School activity is this committee’s function. Activities such as the New Parent meeting and School Supply Volunteer lunch are just a few of the places you can enjoy the work of the Social Committee.

USED UNIFORM SALE This committee organizes the sale of gently used uniforms at the School Supply Sale and during the year. Donations of gently used uniforms can be dropped off in the bin across from the school office.

BIRTHDAY CLUB This committee remembers each student’s birthday during the school year with a gift certificate to the Viking Vault and for Rita’s Italian Ice. Students with summer birthdays will receive their gift on their half birthday. In addition, Students can find their name “in lights” on the school cafeteria bulletin board during their birthday month.

CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK This committee plans activities for Catholic Schools Week.
