About the Home and School Association of Penn Alexander
The Home and School Association of the Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander University of Pennsylvania Partnership School (HSA of PAS), a 501(c)(3) organization, is made up of you: hard-working parents, caretakers, and educators who support the school through fundraising and volunteerism. All current parents, guardians, faculty, and staff are voting members of the HSA. The HSA is run by its Board of Directors. Members of the Working Groups contribute and support the Board.
The HSA's goal is to help maintain, empower, and further enhance Penn Alexander School in order to provide the best possible learning environment for our children.
What the HSA does:
Raise money for school programming including the school’s full-time art teacher and after-school clubs and for classroom and building supplies.
Promote school spirit and community involvement through special events such as the Ice Cream Social, Fall Festival, Ice Skating Party, Talent Show, Musical, Bingo Night, and the PAS 5K.
Help keep all members informed of school activities and news.
Support teachers and staff by recognizing accomplishments, through teacher appreciation week, and by reimbursing for classroom supplies and professional development.
Volunteer at key school activities, events, and class trips.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the HSA.
The HSA formed a Committee in February of 2022 to update the HSA’s bylaws, which had not been
amended in over 20 years. We need you to PLEASE VOTE to adopt the new Bylaws & to approve the 2022-2024 Officer Slate.
In addition to the HSA, the Penn Alexander School has the following organized groups:
School Advisory Council (SAC) is a forum for discussion and collaboration with the PAS administration on school-based decision making with a focus on student achievement and school improvement. The SAC champions the work for improved student achievement, effective teaching in the classroom, parent and community engagement in the educational process, and communication and support between home and school.
The Penn Alexander Equity Circle shares values, stories, and truths, taking concrete action to build a strong, inclusive community that welcomes and supports all families, all religions, all races, all gender and sexual identities, all abilities, and all cultural and economic backgrounds.
