Home and School Association
The St. Martin’s School Home and School Association’s (HSA) primary role is to foster a strong working relationship between parents and school staff in support of our students. All school parents are members of the HSA and are invited to attend every other month HSA meetings, which provide an opportunity for parents and school staff to exchange information on the events and activities happening in our school community. Parents develop friendships with other parents while supporting efforts that benefit the various needs of our students and school. HSA officers are elected annually from among school parents and serve a two-year term. The HSA President attends School Advisory Board meetings and reports on the activities of the HSA.
Our dedicated group of HSA volunteers organize fundraisers, events and activities for students, school staff and parents throughout the year, including but not limited to monthly Dinner Night Out, Annual Dinner, Dance & Auction, the SMS booth at the Annual Gaithersburg Book Festival, and Friday Night Bingo. Homeroom Parents help to coordinate class parties and class-hosted school events such as the monthly Angel Fund Bake Sale, Breakfast with Santa, Grandparent’s Day and Teacher Appreciation Week.
Meetings are held on the second Thursday of every other month from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM in the school library. Come and share your ideas, connect with other parents and learn about all the wonderful things happening at SMS!
