St. Mary’s publishes a hard copy of our Family Directory, as well as maintains an email distribution list of our families for communication of upcoming events and important information.

There are three General HASA Meetings each school year, which provide an opportunity to share school news and upcoming events with our parent community, as well as hear an update from the HASA team. Meetings are scheduled in October, February and April; all parents are encouraged to attend!

The HASA Board also meets the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Parish House. ALL parents are welcome to attend, so please join us if you’d like to assist us in an upcoming event or take part in HASA.

A Major Thanks...
... to Jackie Wagner, Joan Fitzgerald, and Megan Capperella for their service on the Home and School Board the last two years. They have given much love and time, which greatly benefitted our school. Thank you very much Jackie, Joan, and Megan.
