ANNUAL APPEAL!

The PTA is hoping for 100% family participation in it’s annual appeal drive – all donations are greatly appreciated!

Please maximize your contribution by giving via check – you’ll save us the processing fee we must pay on credit card transactions, which can amount to several thousand dollars annually. Of course, you may always donate online through the DONATE NOW button on any of the PTA’s web pages.

Please give what you can, and check to see if your employer has a corporate matching program!

If you have not already done so, please send in your PTA Contribution, it is never too late.  For more information, email us at  hsaspta.board@gmail.com

HSAS PTA Welcomes Elected Officials!

Alumni, staff, parents & guardians were on hand last week to welcome State Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz and State Senator Jeffrey Klein to HSAS, as we celebrated both our 15th year and the receipt of their generous capital funding. The officials are pictured above with Mr. Weiss, and our PTA Co-Presidents, Alice Lee and Unjoo Noh.

Assemblyman Dinowitz’s $125,000 will purchase new computers, laptops and classroom furniture. The $145,000 from State Senator Klein will upgrade the HVAC system that regulates temperatures throughout the school and will replace the sliding walls in rooms 106-108 to divide the space into truly soundproof zones. In addition, Senator Klein discussed having named HSAS one of his BOOST schools (Building Options and Opportunities for Students), which awards us an additional $16,000 in funding for curricular enrichment.
