Home & School Association

The mission of the St. Edward Home & School Association (HSA) is to bring parents and teachers together to further enhance the educational foundation for our students.  The strength of the Home and School Association depends on our parents’ involvement. Whether big or small, every parent plays a crucial role in the success of our school by sharing his or her time and talent.

By utilizing the funds raised through the Saints Ultimate Challenge, HSA hosts or assists with many school events including Donuts with Grownups, the talent show and cultural night, Teacher Appreciation Week, the Christmas teachers' luncheon, winter dance, and Evening of the Arts.

By making these events possible, we enrich the educational experiences for all of our students and promote a sense of family and fellowship within our school community.

We are proud to have so many talented parents and grandparents who give their time and talent to the Home and School Association, but we are always looking for additional hands to lighten the load. For more information, please contact Jessie Bryant via email at jessicabryant5681@att.net.

HSA BOARD POSITIONS
