Home and School Organization

The Saint Catharine of Siena Home and School Organization (HSO) consists of all parents or legal guardians of SCS students and members of the faculty. Its mission is to focus on the advancement of Catholic education and the religious, educational and cultural welfare of the students, to build community and foster communication between parents and teachers, and to help meet the financial needs of the school by engaging in fundraising activities. To maintain active membership in HSO, every family is required to pay annual dues in the amount of $15.00. This fee covers the cost of special school programs, shows and activities. All members as outlined above are warmly welcomed and encouraged to participate in activities the HSO offers. Please consider volunteering, in any capacity you are able, to help plan or carry out these activities for the benefit of our students and families. Contact a member of the Executive Board with any questions.
