The Home & School Association(HSA) puts on events and programming for SES families, fundraises to provide financial support to the school, and works with the school on a variety of initiatives. Last year the HSA led the Saints Ultimate Challenge fundraiser to purchase Smart Boards for classrooms, ran used uniform sales, assisted with the talent show and family picnic, and hosted teacher appreciation events, among other things.
All current families are members of the Home & School Association.
