What is the Home and School Association?
The Home and School Association (HSA) is an organization much like a PTA. Its purpose is to promote better communication and cooperation between St. John’s school and parents. The HSA also supports the school financially with money earned through a few very successful fundraisers.
There are five general meetings throughout the year. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend these meetings to contribute your ideas and to keep up-to-date on school happenings. Every St. John’s School family is a member of the Home and School Association. Annual membership dues are included in each year’s tuition.
