St. George Home and School Association

Welcome to the St. George Home and School Association (HSA)! The St. George HSA is a service and support organization. Our activities involve coordinating volunteers, hosting and organizing receptions, and promoting fundraising efforts. 

We do not affect school policy in any way. If you have a problem with school policy or any other serious problem, school administration needs to be contacted. 

Every parent at St. George is a member of the HSA, as you pay $10 dues automatically through your tuition payment. Together we do great things for our children and our school.

Volunteers are Special People

St. George is truly blessed with many wonderful volunteers who generously give their time and talents to support our school. Volunteer parents compliment and support the students, staff and faculty of St. George in fulfilling the goals of Catholic education. While being a school volunteer is a reward in itself, it also demonstrates to our children the value and importance we place on their education and spiritual growth.

Volunteers are required to be fingerprinted, have a background check, complete a child protection program and sign a "Code of Ethics" form.  Information is available in the school office.

Home and School Sponsored Activities:

Here are just a few of the functions and activities that the Home and School Association sponsors:

  • Grandparents Day. What a special time when our kids can share part of their day with their grandparents. Thanks to all of those who assist and help in any way. This is always a very successful event. Grandparents Day will be held Friday, November 11, 2016.  Check back here in September for more Grandparent Day information.
  • Teacher Appreciation Week. The teachers enjoy a great week of cards, flowers and special tokens from their students. Home and School pampers our teachers with a great lunch, including melodies by Jan Dupre and the Gentlemen of Swing during their luncheon. Our teachers feel especially appreciated all week. Teacher Appreciation Week will be the week of March 6 - 10, 2017. 
  • Spirit Day. We hold Spirit Day rain or shine. Everyone shows their school spirit with much enthusiasm especially during our banner presentation, followed by a full day of fun, including booth games, field games, volleyball and bingo. Spirit Day will be held Friday, May 5, 2017. Check back here in January for more Spirit Day information and sign-up forms.
  • First Day of School. HSA, along with several 8th graders, help to make our little ones feel special on the first few days of school. Volunteers greet the children in car pool and escorted our kindergartners and first graders to their classrooms. Another milestone in the life of our children.
  • Teacher Birthdays. Happy birthday to you! Home and School helps teachers celebrate their special day by providing a cake in the teachers' lounge on the first Thursday of each month.
  • Teacher Support. Many teachers each year spend far beyond their school's budget for supplies. Each year, every teacher receives up to $100.00 reimbursement from Home and School to help defray school supply costs for their classrooms. They really appreciate these funds.
  • 8th Grade Dinner and Reception. The HSA honors all 8th grade graduates with a dinner held in May. Congratulations and good luck to all of our graduates!
  • Graduating Mom's Committee. This committee was formed to help insure that our 8th graders would have a memorable year. Moms of 8th grade students help organize field trips, a slide show, activities, and a memory book. Alongside faculty they work very hard each year to make these events special for our 8th graders.
  • Mother Seton Award. This award recognizes individuals whose dedication to home, school, and parish has been exceptional. A ceremony is held at the Catholic Life Center in May to recognize their devotion to our parish.

In addition to the many activities we helped organize during the year, your Home and School Association also helps to sponsor the following: Youth Legislature, Indian Festival, 7th & 8th Grade Social, and two 8th grade scholarships for $750 each.
