HSA Board Members and Committee Chairs 2016-2017
Welcome to the Home and School Association (HSA)
We are the community of families, teachers and staff who work together to support the school with our time and talents!
Parent participation is what makes BSS have a great family-friendly, community environment. Our active and passionate parents volunteer in classrooms, put together class parties, join us on our field trips, and coach athletic teams. Parents also help out at school-wide events such as the Back to School night, Oktoberfest, Open Houses and Graduation.
And, of course, we always depend on parent prayers for our students, staff, and school. The relationships among parents create a caring community, as parents help each other with the parenting process and weave a web of support for our students
The mission of HSA is to support the teachers and students and to care for the school building and grounds.
