Home & School Association (HSA)

Who We Are

In today's educational settings, the best way to help children succeed is through a strong partnership among the school, its teachers and the parents.

That's why the mission of the Holy Trinity Home and School Association (HSA) is to provide a structure where parents partner with the administration and faculty to support the spiritual and academic excellence of the children of Holy Trinity School.

The HSA is composed of a six-member Board that holds HSA Community meetings regularly during the school year and organizes parent-led committees to facilitate activities to strengthen our community. All parents are encouraged to participate and welcome at the HSA Community meetings. Our collective involvement keeps Holy Trinity strong, vibrant and fun!

To contact the HSA or to inquire about the Board nominations process, please email the HSA President or contact the school office. All HSA Officers’ and Coordinators’ emails are available through DirectorySpot.

Our Events

The HSA organizes events, both large and small, throughout the school year. Each gathering has a specific mission, is led by parent volunteers and provides an opportunity for all of us to connect with fellow parents and HTS faculty. Join us!

If you are interested in helping with any HSA event or have additional questions, please feel free to contact any of us on the HSA Board or the coordinator identified.

Friendraising & Fundraising

The two links below contain an overview of the community building activities, the two larger fundraisers (the Golf and Tennis Classic and the Gala), and the several “friendraisers” held at HTS. From eclectic to formal, there are many events that will catch your eye. We hope you will support any and all that appeal to your sense of fun, community and giving at HTS. Your support is crucial to our success, and the stakes for the school are high: the money raised goes toward financial-need scholarships, school technology upgrade programs, school athletic programs, and more. But equally important, the friendships made help to build the strong community long enjoyed at HTS.

Thank you for all you do for HTS!
