Home & School Association
Welcome to the 2015/2016 School Year!
The Jenkintown Home & School Association (HSA) is an integral part of the School District of Jenkintown. HSA is comprised of all of the parents of students in the district. We support and organize programs and events for the benefit of our students, and seek to augment the incredible work of our teachers. Some of these activities require funds, which we raise through various funding programs throughout the year, while others just require time and energy on the part of our parents! Some of our biggest events and fundraisers throughout the year include the Jog-A-Thon (October), Bingo Night (winter), the Red & Blue Fair (May.) We rely on the support and volunteer time of countless parents, and we can’t thank you enough.
Some of the items we support include:
- Class Trips
- Curriculum Enhancement through Minigrants
- Educational Assemblies
- Green Apple Day of Service and Earth Day
- HS Athletic Dinner
- HS Graduation
- HS Honors Trip
- Music Adjudication Trips
- Elementary Family Fun Night
- Reading Olympics
- Scholarships for Graduating Seniors
- School Garden
- Sixth Grade Graduation
- Student Recognition Awards
- Teacher Appreciation Luncheon
- Walk to School Week
- Support Our Students (SOS)
- Resource Workshops for Parents
HSA is governed by a Board made up of Officers and Committee Chairs. The activities of HSA are carried out by its committees (i.e., volunteers like YOU!). Some committees need just one or two people; others need many more. We welcome ALL parents’ involvement and our committees are always looking for help. Feel free to contact any officer or committee chair to become involved.
HSA welcomes your input, so please attend our meetings and do not hesitate to contact any of us if you have any questions, want to share ideas, or would like to volunteer! For updates and information, be sure to have your email address registered to receive emails from the school, check this section of the website, or like our Facebook page “Jenkintown Home and School Association.”
HSA Parent MeetingsHSA meetings are open to all parents and we encourage you to attend. It’s a great way to meet other parents and find out what’s going on in the district. Meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of every other month from 7:30-8:30 pm. This year’s scheduled meetings are: 9/30, 12/2, 2/3, 4/6 and 6/1.
