Parent Leadership

School Advisory Board (SAB)


In accordance with the Archdiocesan Board of Education, an Advisory Board consists of the Pastor, Principal, a faculty member, parents, and community members who set direction for the school.


Strategic planning, marketing, and development are included in discussions from which policies are established.  Final policy decisions rest with the Pastor and Principal.

Home and School Association (HASA)


The Home and School Association fosters collaboration between parents and teachers.  Parents of students and teachers are members of the Association that meets four times a year.  Families are encouraged to attend meetings and to participate in the Association functions.



HASA Service


All families are expected to contribute 25 hours of service per year, which must be completed by April 30.  Opportunities are provided by HASA, the school, and parish.


If a parent volunteers to work directly with the students or chaperone a trip, s/he must complete the Archdiocese of Washington Child Protection Program, which entails fingerprinting, background check, and a three-hour workshop sponsored by the Archdiocese of Washington.


Volunteers are required to sign in upon arrival and wear the visitors pass while serving  in the school.
