Home & School Association
The purpose of the Home and School Association (HSA) is to enhance and support the mission of Sacred Heart School by fostering communication and pursuing time and talent to strengthen the school and promote a sense of community. HSA coordinates parental support through social and volunteer activities and fundraisers. All parents/guardians automatically become members of HSA, along with Sacred Heart’s faculty and administration.
