About the Saint James School HSA:

At Saint James School, we believe the education of our children depends on a strong bond between “home” and “school,” hence the Home and School Association (HSA).  The HSA is similar to what other schools may call a PTA or a PTO.  The primary purposes the Saint James School HSA are fundraising for the general use of the school and promoting family-oriented social activities that enhance community spirit for students, families and staff.

There is no fee to join the HSA and all families become members upon registration of their children at the school.  We invite and encourage all Saint James School parents, guardians, and grandparents to actively participate in our social activities and fundraisers.

Some of our larger annual events and fundraisers are as follows:

Scholastic Book Fair book_fair_image – Saint James School hosts an annual Scholastic book fair in September. Proceeds from the sale of books at this event will fund the purchase of new books for the SJS library and the classrooms.  Volunteers are needed to help with setup and during school hours to help as the students visit the book fair.

Halloween Party – This year, our annual Halloween Party is being transformed into a “Trunk or Treat” event.  Students enjoy food, crafts, music, and lots of fun games and prizes.  Click Here to see pictures from last year’s event.  Students come in costume, but no masks or hand-held props please.  Volunteers are needed to plan and help out at the event.

Annual GalGalaimagea & Auction – The annual SJS Gala & Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year and a great adults-only event that brings together many different people from within the SJS community. At the Gala, attendees have the option to participate in the live and/or silent auctions and bid on things from class baskets to vacation getaways! There is dinner, dancing, and A LOT of fun.

 

christmasChristmas Store – During early December, the school Gym is transformed into a shopping plaza.  Each class has an allotted time during which children may shop for and purchase inexpensive items for their family.  Every year our students are so excited to pick out something special for their loved ones and parents/siblings/grandparents love unwrapping what the children picked out for them on Christmas morning.

Father/Daughter Dance – Our annual Father/Daughter dance is traditionally held in the spring and features an evening of DJ music, games, dancing, and snacks.  Click Here for pictures from last year’s event.  Attire for girls is dressy and attire for dads is office casual (keep in mind it can get quite warm in the gym).

TeacherAppreciationWeekLogo

Teacher & Staff Appreciation Luncheon – This end-of-school-year event is just one way SJS parents show their appreciation to the teachers and staff for all the help and support they give our children during the year.  The luncheon is hosted at the school and room parents spend an hour helping in the classrooms so teachers can attend.  Click Here for pictures from last year’s event.
