The Home and School Association (H.S.A.) is a parent support organization. All families are encouraged to attend the H.S.A. meetings and to participate in its sponsored functions. They also urge all parents to be involved in their children’s education by supporting the volunteer efforts of the Home and School Association.
The role of the H.S.A. is two-fold. First, the H.S.A. provides the volunteers that organize and coordinate many community-building and fundraising activities. The second role of the H.S.A. is to provide fundraising income for the school. Each year, the H.S.A. make a significant monetary contribution to the school’s operating budget. This helps to close the gap between tuition and the actual cost of the SJRCS education.
H.S.A. Mission – Work to promote open communication, good will and cooperation between and among students, parents, administrative staff, faculty and other affiliated parties.
