Home & School Association
The St. Andrew Home and School Association (aka HASA) supports the school by volunteering time to classroom activities, providing financial support to classroom curriculum and implementing school community programs and events. HASA, (similar to PTO), is the primary parent facilitated group in the St. Andrew School Community. Its members are parent volunteers who work with the school to enrich the lives of students, their families, teachers, and staff. For more information see a glimpse of what we do below or contact one of the 2017/2018 HASA co-Presidents, April Bush at firstname.lastname@example.org or April Rubino at email@example.com.

We invite and encourage you to come to our HASA Huddles where we meet once a month to go over upcoming events and brainstorm ideas with everyone. Great time to meet people and see who’s doing what for our kids and school. We meet in the Multipurpose Room on the second Monday of every month starting at 6:30 PM and meetings last around an hour. (Date, Time & Place subject to change) Questions regarding the meeting, please contact April Bush email@example.com or April Rubino at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional information about some of our programs and activities:
- PEER PALS: This committee pairs all new students with a “pal” in his/her class to help ease the transition to St. Andrew School. The “pal” will show the student around, eat lunch with him/her, play at recess and introduce the new student to classmates.
- SKATING/GET AIR PARTIES: These parties are held twice a year, fall and spring. It’s a great time for kids to skate or jump while the parents socialize. Fun for the whole family!
- SOCIAL COMMITTEE: The planning of refreshments and light snacks for any Home and School activity is this committee’s function. Activities such as the New Parent meeting and School Supply Volunteer lunch are just a few of the places you can enjoy the work of the Social Committee.

- BIRTHDAY CLUB: This committee remembers each student’s birthday during the school year with a gift certificate to the Viking Vault and for Rita’s Italian Ice. Students with summer birthdays will receive their gift on their half birthday.
