HSA Meeting, Tuesday, May 29th, 2018
Monsignor Belford- Welcome to Seminarian Robert Carolan, whom you can call BROTHER BOBBY, who will be with us at STS for a ten week internship at our parish. Brother Bobby has just finished his first year at Saint Joseph Seminary, in the Dunwoodie section of Yonkers.
President Brian Lyons: Last meeting for the year so thank you to all those that have attended.
Financial statement- shows that we have had a decent year- we matched our numbers from last year for a total of $52k with all the HSA fundraising events – this does not include any of the school fundraising.
The school years Dine Out’s brought in around $2k in fundraising!
Basket auction- we raised $15k in one night- it was a lot of work but was a great time and it raises a lot of money for the school!
Two events coming up-
Field Day, Friday, June 1st
We need volunteers – let us know ASAP, we can use all the help we can get. All 240 students will be coming out to participate! Colors- wear your color from head to toe.
Send in water and towel with your child. Lunch provided by Holy Name Society- usually hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. We will be providing the DJ, an Ice Cream truck, and all field day activities.
If you can arrive by 8am to start with setting up, we would appreciate it.
This year, the winning team will get the chance to duct tape the principal to the wall! We hope to finish at 1:00pm/1:30pm- with the winning team who will line up and duct tape Principal Simione to the wall.
Last event- this Saturday at 7pm in the gym is the Spring Luau – Free event for all STS Parents which includes- Band and food! BYOB
Looking Forward- Soon to be President Allison Cudy thanked everyone and is looking forward to starting this new school year as president with her team. They are looking forward to working with everyone, having fun and lots of great ideas.
Final acknowledgments- Monsignor- Very special thank you to Brian who was a great leader for the past two years.
Asked all 8th grade parents – to stand for recognition!
“Thank you to Monsignor- you always listened and were available to help with discussing ideas.”
“Thanks to Principal Simione, always willing to try new ideas and never said no!”
“Thanks to the HSA board members for all their help these past two years!”
“Lastly, thanks to my wife Kathleen, for doing a lot of the work behind the scenes, couldn’t do it without her!”
“The last two years have been good, and sometimes not so good but overall we tried to add new things like grandparents day and father/son event; great time had by everyone. Penny wars was a major success. Spring Sale was a complete disaster.”
“Good luck to the new board. I will be here at STS since the Lyon family has a long way to go and we will be here to help as needed!”
