The Home and School Association (HSA) is the parent association of the Merritt Memorial School (MMS).
The mission of the MMS HSA is the following:
Promote communication between the home and school
Enhance the curriculum wherever possible in concert with the teachers and administration
Promote the welfare of the children
Bring into a closer relationship the home and school, so that the parents or guardians and teachers may cooperate intelligently and effectively in the education of each child.
What does the MMS HSA do ?
We support MMS teachers and their programs through volunteer efforts in the classroom, lunchroom, library, on class field trips, and through our Teacher Enrichment Grant Program.
We enhance the curriculum by sponsoring programs such as: Cultural Arts Assemblies, Author Visits, Writer Workshops, Field Trips, Child Safety and After School Programs.
We sponsor special events for students and their families throughout the year such as: New Parent Reception, Fall Picnic, Fall & Spring Book Fairs, Halloween Party, VIP Day, International Day, Earth Day, and Mustang Field Day.
We provide and manage the school lunch program.
We fund all student transportation to and from supplemental school trips to support the curriculum, as well as provide an allowance for field trip admission for all students.
We provide high school scholarships for graduating MMS students.
We donate all year-end HSA profits to MMS.
