It's Holy Week...

The Holy Family HSA hopes that you and your families have a blessed Holy Week and a very Happy Easter! And to all the students - enjoy your Easter break!

Before that break, be sure to join us for a uniform exchange tomorrow (Monday, March 29) from 2 to 4pm. See below for more info and please volunteer to help out if you can! We need people to set up, help during the exchange and clean up after. Note: Spring uniforms can be worn starting on April 6 (per Mr. Hughes).

In other news, our discount card sale has been extended through this week - until Friday, April 2. Our annual appeal also continues. For additional details on these and other activities/updates, please read below.

Any questions or feedback, please reach out (hsa@holyfamilyaston.org). Thank you!

Uniform Exchange

We will be hosting a uniform exchange tomorrow (Monday, March 29) from 2 to 4pm in the school parking lot. Please bring your gently used uniform items to the event, where you can also pick up those items that you may need.

We need volunteers! If you can help to set up before the event, help our families find items during the exchange, or clean up after, please email HSA at hsa@holyfamilyaston.org. We appreciate any way you could pitch in!

Also, if you are not able to come to this event in person and are in need of specific uniform items, especially in light of the pending summer uniform switch on April 6, please email HSA. If those items are available after the exchange, we will set them aside for you and send them home with your student the next school day. Of course, we cannot guarantee the availability of any specific items.

Discount Card Sale - Extended to Friday, April 2nd

We are selling discount cards again this year, in conjunction with Aston and Pennell Elementary. They are $15 each and apply to various local establishments, with half the cost going to Holy Family.

The deadline for purchase is this Friday, April 2nd. Here's the payment link:
