Home and School Association
The purposes of the HSA are: to represent and advance the views, interests and perspectives of parents in the school community; to aid the integration and education of parents in the expectations, activities and procedures of the school; in collaboration with the administration, faculty and Board of Limited Jurisdiction, to lend its support to activities, and programs for students and faculty; and to advance the financial viability and public image of the school, and the security, morale and well-being of its members. Together we can achieve our common goals of supporting our children, the school, and the entire Saints Peter and Paul School community.
The HSA sponsors events such as our Annual Spring Auction, Movie Nights, class and grade events many more. Event proceeds have generated significant financial contributions to the School.

Volunteers are an integral part of our school operation. Volunteers are always needed and are welcome. It’s a great way to meet other school Parents.
Each classroom has two “homeroom parents” that organize the classroom volunteers, and assist the teachers as needed. The sign-up for homeroom parent occurs at Back to School Night.
Volunteers are needed for every lunch period, but especially for the younger students. The sign-up for lunch volunteers will be at Back to School Night.

In May is a special breakfast for all of the parents who volunteered during the year. You may bring younger siblings. Every class performs a song for the parents. If you can make it, it is a great event!
Visitors are welcome by appointment. To arrange a meeting, visitors should contact the School Office. Parents coming to school to bring forgotten articles or to relay messages should come to the Office. Classes may not be disturbed for these reasons. Parents may not confer with a teacher or visit a classroom between the hours of 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM, unless the Principal gives permission for such a visit. All visitors must report to the Office and sign the Visitors Log when entering the building. An atmosphere of quiet respect for the learning rights of others should prevail throughout the school building.
