Volunteer for HSA events

The St. Bernadette School Home School Association welcomes you to the Beehive!

Our mission is to foster hospitality and connectivity among students, parents, teachers, administrators, priests, and all school stakeholders. We are here to help create an atmosphere of warmth, open doors, spirituality, rigor and mostly FUN! We host extra-curricular events for students, socializing opportunities for parents, family parties and happenings, and traditional events special to St B’s. We also support parents in completing their volunteer credits and actively participating around the schoolhouse.

Join Us!

HSA Winter Updates

Happy New Year and welcome back! The Christmas break came and went and now we’re back at it. There are a lot of super fun events and activities coming up, along with great opportunities to get involved and earn tier credits. This email is long and is throwing a lot of information at you, but we recommend at least skimming from top to bottom, so you don’t miss out on any of the fun! 

 

To start us off this winter, we have Bingo Night, THIS Friday, January 13th 6-8 pm in the school hall. Please consider signing up to help with this event for a tier credithttps://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f44aca929abfb6-bingo#/ . And, if you plan to attend, please fill in this form, so that we have an estimate on numbers for set up, pizza orders, etc.: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSddp2p02XMNscbz7IeUddmyhu2E091zmlc5xqDK4z39bvDzeg/viewform?usp=sf_link

Another fun favorite tradition coming up is the Chili Cookoff and Junior Baking Competition! This will take place on Saturday, January 21st at 5:45 pm after Mass in the school hall. To join in the fun and compete, sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0d44aaa62da6f94-2023#/

Catholic Schools Week will be here before we know it, January 30th-February 3rd. We have a few fun things planned for teachers, students AND parents, including a parent paint night social with SBS alum “Art By Megan” and a parent coffee/breakfast. More information to come regarding those events and other elements of CSW. 

We are still looking for a Catholic Schools Week chairpersonor two to assist us in orchestrating some of these events. (Much of the heavy lifting in planning is already done, so this will be an easy volunteer opportunity!) Email hsa@saintbernadetteschool.org if interested in helping out. 

——————————————————–

Also during Catholic Schools Week, comes another tradition we all look forward to: St. B’s International Night is back! Save the date for a one-night trip around the world on Wednesday, February 1st from 6-8pm. Enjoy an international potluck as you fill your “passport” with the rich cultures of our students and families. 

Interested in sharing about a country you and your student love? Sign up HERE.
 
Whether presenting or not, all are welcome to bring food, and join in on the fun! Tier Credit opportunities also available. 
 
Please reach out to co-chairs Jorge Castillo and Chris Morin with any questions. See the attachments for more information.

Thank you to those who give so much time, effort and energy to make all of these special events occur for our community. Without volunteers, none of this would happen! We so appreciate all of you and your students. We hope to see you soon!
