Home & School Association

The Home & School Association is a member based group designed to facilitate collaboration between the ‘home’ and the ‘school’ families for the betterment of the young people who attend MSA.  This is achieved through various social and fundraising events.   The Association is also a forum for communication and the dissemination of information between the parents, school, and the Board of Governors.   In addition to having four representatives that sit on the School’s Board of Governors, Elementary, Middle School, and High School has been assigned a parent representative who’s responsibility it is to act as a conduit between the parents, Home & School Association and the MSA itself. 

The Association is run by a team of dedicated volunteers who devote their time to strategize and implement the activities.  Becoming involved is a great way to get to know the School even better, meet other families, get to know MSA’s Faculty & Staff and contribute to the well-being of our students.  It’s Executive Officers and Committee Members include:
