Home and School
The St. Paul Home and School Association (HSA) was established to achieve a closer relationship and understanding among the parents, principal, and teachers of St. Paul School, so that the educational, social, and spiritual development of the children may be broadened and improved. HSA acts as a fundraising and guidance body for our school and represents St. Paul’s version of a parent-teacher association. All parents of children enrolled in St. Paul School are members of the HSA. The HSA provides St. Paul School with financial support for extra items needed that regular tuition fees do not cover. The HSA holds three meetings per year, the second Monday of September, January, and May.
HSA Fundraising activities include the read-a-thon, wreath sale, trivia night, freezer meals, fun run/5K race, golf outing, biennial gala, Hy-Vee/Walmart gift cards, script gift cards, book fair, Amazon Smile program, and 5th and 6th grade basketball and volleyball tournaments. See more information about these opportunities below.
