Masterman HSA Welcomes You!
Dear Masterman Parents,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! We are writing to invite you to join or renew your membership in the Masterman Home & School Association (MHSA) and we eagerly await the day we can see you and your children in person. MHSA plays a vital role in connecting families, our students, and our school to build a great community that is Masterman. As with everything, MHSA will look a little different this year and meetings will be held virtually, at least the first few months. However, your participation is important perhaps now more than ever.
Even if you have shared your information with us in the past we ask that you share again to ensure that we have the most current information and also to ensure that you are in our system as a current HSA member. In years past, we have suggested a donation with your membership in the amount of $100 per child, which is tax-deductible. This year, we are waiving that suggested fee and are not tying a donation to membership. However, if you are able to support MHSA we ask that you do so voluntarily because our funding comes exclusively from your generosity. Your contribution will help fund programs including technology, staff, and teacher grants to support curriculum, school supplies, and textbooks (including online licenses not covered by the district) to name a few as well as many student programs and community programs.
This year we have added two additional lines to our budget that correspond to new MHSA committees: Mutual Aid and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Anti-Racism Initiatives. We seek to embrace the needs of our community and offer assistance to families during these challenging times and support the critical work of a safe and inclusive, anti-racist environment for all Masterman students. More information will be forthcoming about both of these new efforts.
On behalf of the MHSA, thank you for everything you do. Together, we are Masterman STRONG!
