What is the HSA?

At St. Patrick school, the “Home and School Association” (HSA) has been the name of the group (much like the PTA at other schools) that provides fundraising to support the school and teachers’ needs, a venue for parents and teachers to discuss home-and-school ideas, and a group that strives to provide activities to build community between our homes, the school, and the parish.

Who is HSA?

YOU! The St. Patrick Home and School Association is a group made up of any St. Patrick school parents/guardians and the school’s teachers and faculty. We want to invite YOU to enrich your students’ school experience by participating and volunteering in any Home and School meetings, activities, and volunteer opportunities. This group provides you the opportunity to voice your concerns and opinions, share your talents, and to give encouragement.

**Note: The Diocese of Youngstown requires all volunteers coming into contact with students to attend a VIRTUS Child Protection in-service class.  This will be offered on various dates in parishes throughout the diocese. Go to www.virtusonline.org and register online to find the available classes.  You must pre-register for classes at St. Patrick’s by calling Linda Kavalec in the St. Patrick Religious Education Office at (330) 677-4453, to reserve your spot.

School Directory Information

This directory is provided by the Home and School Association in hopes of fostering the community between our family homes and our children’s school. As parents we have found this to be a useful tool to contact families for school purposes. This directory is ONLY to be used for school purposes, and permission is never given for solicitations or other business use.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Thank you to all families who submitted information for the school directory.  The 2017-18 directory has been delivered to all those families for whom we have email addresses.  If you are a guardian of a St. Patrick student and you did not receive a directory, then we do not have your email address. Please contact us, HSA, with your current email.  If your information is not included in the directory, is incorrect, or needs revised, click on the link below. If we get enough submissions, we will issue a revised directory.
