What Is The HSA?

HSA Fall Fundraisers are a Success!

The HSA is excited to give you an update on our two September fundraisers.

The 9th Annual Baby & Kids Green Garage Sale generated just over $30,000!  These funds will be used to remodel the Preschool Gross Motor Room and to purchase technological enhancements for the Elementary School.  A giant thank you for all of the generous donations and all of the fantastic volunteers!  A special thank you to the garage sale committee, Jeanette Aylward, Ted Kreuser, Liz Roarty, and Jen Patras.

Our 2nd Annual Fun Run was a record shattering success!  Due to your generosity, and that of your family and friends, we raised over $110,000!!  These funds will be used for Teacher Bonuses, a new Classroom grant program, technological enhancements throughout the school, the new Preschool Playground fixture, the HSA operating budget and a contribution to the parish. Thank you to all of our sponsors  and volunteers!  A special thank you to the administrators and teachers for all of their hard work and support, and our Fun Run team, Fiona Urquhart, Dana Clarke, Angela Kerr, and Katie Milton.
