HSA Corner

Did you know?

Studies have consistently shown that children whose parents are actively involved in school activities:

  • have higher academic achievement
  • possess greater self-esteem and better mental health
  • have better peer interactions and enhanced social skills

Leadership Opportunities Available!

The Home and School Association plays a pivotal role at MSS. They are the link between school and family. Not only does the HSA work hard to support MSS with fundraisers, the proceeds of which are used to pay for classroom enrichment, but the HSA also provides family fun activities for our school community like the Fall Fest, Father-Daughter Dance, and Mother-Son Bowling.

We are blessed with a group of talented, hardworking committee heads for our events. Now we need a few parents (or grandparents!) to step up and help lead our HSA! Help us continue to make a difference for our students. The President and VP of HSA will be responsible for supporting the various committees, acting as liaison between the HSA and administration, conducting meetings, communicating with families, and coordinating the HSA calendar. With a built-in support team, you won't be alone!

Please consider filling these important leadership roles. We can't do it without you!


CONTRACT REMINDER

If you received financial aid, your tuition contract was regenerated to reflect the new amount you owe. PLEASE sign in to SchoolAdmin and re-sign the new contract. We MUST have a signed, valid contract before your child can return to school. Contact the Finance Office with any questions.
