Welcome to all new and returning families
What is HSA? Annunciation Catholic School’s mission is to develop the whole student through a community experience. The main objective of our HSA is to build community relationships through fundraising activities. In addition we strive to: (1) sponsor fundraising events for the financial support of the school, (2) provide voluntary service to the school, and (3) help the school acquire and maintain the equipment needed to sustain a high quality education.
Who is a Member of HSA?
Each Annunciation Catholic School parent/guardian is a member of the HSA.
What are the Benefits of Membership?
Community Building - Throughout the year HSA will sponsor fundraising events that not only raise money for the school while at the same time brings all families together with an understanding that as a community we can appreciate those things that make us unique while at the same time uniting us within the Annunciation family.
What are HSA’S Goals?
The HSA has committed $20,000 to help cover the school’s operating budget. With 100% family participation we will not only ensure our commitment to the school, but will help keep tuition costs down.
What are the Responsibilities of Each Member?
This year, HSA will require every family to contribute $250 by participating in fundraising projects that are held throughout the year. Additionally, each family is expected to volunteer 20 hours per school year. There are a number of ways to do this. Volunteer sign up sheets will be available at the HSA table on the first day of school and at Back to-School Night.
At the request of families, the HSA is offering a fundraising buyout. The cost of the buyout is $350. This means you will be exempt from fundraising this year.
Tuition covers only 75% of Annunciation Catholic School’s overhead (which includes teacher/staff salaries, building maintenance, insurance, utilities, etc.)
Generosity of Parish support
Research has shown that students whose parents volunteer are higher achievers. Givingour own time is an effective way to teach our children the responsibilities of citizenship and faith. Also, it’s a great way to show your kids that you care about their education.
