Immaculata Home & School Association
The Home & School Association (H&SA) is a parent volunteer organization that bridges home and school life, enhancing the Immaculata experience for our students and families. Every parent or guardian of a child enrolled at Immaculata, as well as all faculty and staff, are members of the H&SA. Therefore, we encourage our whole community to get involved and invite YOU to attend an upcoming H&SA meeting.
There are many opportunities to share your time and talents with our school. Volunteers are an essential component of student life and promote fellowship and community. If you are interested in becoming involved, please indicate your interest and someone will be in touch.
