Dear Harbordale Families,
As President of the Harbordale School Association (HSA), I would like to extend a warm welcome to our returning families and to the new families joining the Harbordale community. Our organization is open to you!
HSA is a group of parents, teachers, and staff who support our school through membership along with many fundraisers and family activities throughout the year. We have an executive board and chair people for numerous committees. Membership dues for an entire family are only $10 per year. Money raised by HSA is spent each year on reading and math programs, computers and computer programs, and many other school essentials. Last year, we purchased iPads for the school and are currently working on upgrades to the decor in the media center, cafeteria, and stairwells. HSA’s efforts help to fill the gap between what is provided by the School Board and what it takes to create a stimulating learning environment.
The communication process begins with becoming a member of HSA. We encourage every family to become a member of HSA. Your family will not only get special status as a member, but you also will have the ability to vote on our many issues, including programming and financial decisions. We are proud to have 100% teacher participation as HSA members.
We have monthly meetings in the school media center, and we communicate with HSA members here through our website. In an effort to be green, very little paperwork will be sent to you from HSA. Therefore, you will need to become familiar with our user-friendly website in order to join HSA, sign up to volunteer, check the calendar of events, buy school merchandise, and so much more!
We look forward to getting to know you and making 2017-2018 an amazing school year! Please get involved and help make Harbordale Elementary the best it can be!
