HSA EVENTS and VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

 

The Home and School Association (HSA) functions much like Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) do in other schools. The HSA supports Holy Redeemer in many ways, including promoting our wonderful school, supporting our teachers, educating parents and teachers, funding school repairs, and providing much needed supplies to our classrooms and school facility.

In order to continue to sponsor the events, fundraisers and speakers that many of us enjoy, we need your support. Please consider actively participating by volunteering to serve in one of the following positions or to assist with a particular activity or event. Not only will you earn hours towards your annual 15-hour volunteer requirement (chairing an activity earns all 15 hours), but your involvement contributes to the community that is Holy Redeemer and helps make our school the best it can be!
