Parents and guardians of children currently attending Holy Family School as well as all clergy and teachers are automatically members of the Home & School Organization. Parents are expected to help the Home & School Organization meet their goals, in addition to the many school and parish activities sponsored by the Home & School Organization (HSO).
The purpose of the organization is:
- To promote communication and a sense of community between the organization and school parents.
- To provide quality programs and speakers for the students and/or parents.
HSO organizes assemblies for students in grades Preschool through 8th grade that provide additional enrichment to our curriculum program. They generally plan two to three assemblies a year, that are funded by ongoing fundraisers.
Here are a few topics we have had in the past:
- Story telling
- Praise and Worship Music
- Puppet Theater
Catholic Schools Week
Every year during the last week in January, HSO helps organize activities centered around the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) theme. Along with the teachers, they plan activities for each day of the week.
HSO organizes small fundraisers that support school activities throughout the school year.
