What Is the Home & School Association (HSA)?

The HSA is comprised of parent volunteers, teachers and staff who work together to enrich the educational and social experience at Demarest School. Like a parent-teacher organization (PTA) at some schools, the HSA plans and organizes special activity days, family nights, class parties, social events, assemblies and programs, and much, much more.

To learn more about how we operate, you can read our Constitution and Bylaws.


To establish and maintain a collaborative working relationship with the professional staff and administration of Demarest Elementary School for the explicit purpose of supplementing and enriching the educational, emotional, social, and learning experience of the students attending Demarest School.
