Donate with cash, check or credit card. Please remember that many employers match contributions. The HSAS PTA is a registered  501(c)(3) organization. Please give what you can.

Make your donation by November 5 to be skipped during our annual Phone-a-thon!

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

HSAS PTA Comedy Night A Huge Success

The PTA’s Annual Comedy was held this past January 28, 2020.
It was a HUGE SUCCESS. Over 150 parents, and friends attended.

A very special thank you to Eniko Horvath, our intrepid PTA Fundraising Co-Chair, who pulled all the pieces together. BRAVO!

The PTA would especially like to thank MaryAnn McAlpin-Giraldo who arranged for all the magnificent talent, who performed at no charge.

We would also like to thank Amy Veltman who was our “Cheerleading” MC for the evening.

Thank you, too, to Nicole Rothschild (PTA President), Nora McCauley, Natassa Romanou, Stephen Friedgood and George Tselioudis for helping set up prior to the event.  Thank you, Jorge Ramirez, the PTA Treasurer, who organized the sign-up and kept our lists organized.

We can’t wait for next year …
