Fayetteville Elementary School HSA

Welcome to the Fayetteville Elementary HSA page. The Home School Association (HSA) is a volunteer organization dedicated to aiding students by providing financial and other support for educational and recreational needs. Fundraising is the primary means of support for the H.S.A. whose goal is to support and enhance educational school programs.

The message below is from HSA co-presidents Sara Fisher and Gretchen Devine.

Dear Parents and Guardians of Fayetteville Elementary,

On behalf of the Fayetteville Elementary Home and School Association (HSA), we would like to welcome you and your family to the 2016-2017 school year. We would also like to express our gratitude to the parents, guardians, teachers and staff involved in last year’s HSA events. The fundraisers and programs were a tremendous success due to the support of dedicated volunteers.

Please read the online monthly HSA Communication Packet now known as the Buzz Beat and refer to the Fayetteville Elementary website for more information on HSA events.

All Fayetteville Elementary community members are encouraged to participate in HSA activities. Volunteers are the key to the HSA’s success.
