HOME & SCHOOL ASSOCIATION LEADERSHIP
The Home and School Association (HSA) is led by a board of officers and is organized into work groups that plan and coordinate the numerous events and programs that take place throughout the year. Participation as an HSA officer is open to any parent. Positions are one to two years in length and, while voluntary, require a commitment of time and dedication as with any other organization. Please refer to the HSA Bylaws for complete descriptions of the responsibilities associated with each board position.
HSA officers are always open to input from St. John the Evangelist families who are welcome to contact them at any time. Specific questions or concerns and ideas for meeting topics and/or guest speakers may also be forwarded to the President.

Parents will earn 1 service hour for attending an HSA meeting. Meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. in Trinity Hall and last approximately one and a half hours.
Upcoming Meetings (2023-24):
August 23 (Room parents only)

Like all schools, St. John the Evangelist sponsors fundraisers to help bridge the gap between its income and the actual cost of education as well as to raise capital for special projects or needs the school may have. The school is funded through four sources: tuition, parish subsidy, donations/grants, and fundraising. The Home and School Association (HSA) organizes and executes two major fundraising events which benefit the social and academic enrichment of our students. Fundraising events also help to moderate tuition increases. More information on these events can be found under Giving.
Race for Education is a jog-a-thon where students are financially sponsored by friends and family to jog or walk around a designated area for a designated time.
Spring Fling is a parish-wide dinner dance with silent and live auctions.
Parent support through committee involvement, event promotion, and actual sales and/or purchases is essential to the success of these events. All families are expected to participate in fundraising events that are coordinated through HSA. Parents should consult the Parent Handbook for more information on what is specifically required of each family.
All HSA forms can be found under the Parent page.
