Home and School Association
Welcome to the Home and School Association at Shady Grove Elementary!
The Home & School Association supports many exciting activities at Shady Grove, working closely with the principal, faculty and staff to provide enriching programs for students. There are many ways for parents to be involved!
SG HSA spends approximately $40,000 annually on educational programs, field trip subsidies, assemblies, author visits and more! We hold several fundraisers throughout the year to raise funds and rely on parents to volunteer and participate, but we understand that not all parents have the time to dedicate to these efforts, so we're making it easier to help in a different way.
2023-2024 HSA General Meeting Dates
General HSA meetings are in the Shady Grove Elementary Library (unless otherwise noted on the school calendar) at 7 p.m. on the following dates:
