Assumption Home School Association ways to get involved
Mother of the Morning/Afternoon: Assumption parent volunteers staff the desk in the lobby. Responsibilities include answering the phone, checking students in and out if arriving late or leaving early, checking in school visitors, delivering notes to teachers and other duties which help the main office staff. Hours for these shifts are as follows: morning 7:45am to 11:00am and afternoon 11:00am to 2:15pm. Please see Room Parent Coordinators.
Christmas Store: Christmas may come but once a year but our Christmas Store committee works year-round to make this day the most special day of the year at our school! Weekly crafting days are held on most Wednesdays from September through November and then again from March through June. There is absolutely no experience necessary for crafting – sometimes you’ll be painting simple wood pieces or even pulling price tags from items or wrapping gifts. There is something for everyone and children are always welcome at daytime craftings – there are snacks for all and toys and videos for the kids. The kids enjoy it and it is a fantastic way to spend a morning and meet other moms while lending a hand!
Fashion Show: Assumption’s Annual Fall Fundraiser, our Fashion Show, is the one big fundraiser of the year that supports the entire HSA and all school programs and capital improvements. This event is a huge undertaking and a great way to get involved and help the school. No matter where your strengths lie, you can find a place in a Fashion Show committee.
Hospitality: Our Hospitality committee takes care of food and drinks for all of our events (Christmas store day, Enrichment, Teacher Appreciation) and also provides “Teacher Treats” on Monday mornings for the teachers. Helping out with Hospitality is great for moms with young kids who can’t spend time at school but who can bake (or buy!) something and drop it off for a special event or on a Monday morning (teacher treats).
Athletics: A lot of students participate in and enjoy our many Athletic programs. We are always in need of parent volunteers to coach or assist. If you have a favorite sport that you’d like to lend a hand with, please let us know. Even if your time is limited, we can use your help!
Enrichment: Our Enrichment committee plans assemblies for the students throughout the year and finishes up with Enrichment Day at the end of the school year. This is a really special day for the kids with a different theme each year. The kids have a ball and learn some new things (but don’t tell them that)! Specific sub-committees are formed later in the year and information is sent home regarding how to get involved. If you have ideas you’d like to share or questions, please contact us.
