Home & School Association
The mission of the Saint Matthew Home & School Association is to bring together parents, teachers, parishioners and other patrons of the school in common support of the students, the school itself, the Diocese of Nashville and the Catholic Church.
There are four officers who manage the affairs of the Home & School Association (HSA), along with several committees that assist them. All parents are invited to become a member of the HSA. Dues are $25 per family and are assessed through the FACTS system. Dues cover many activities held throughout the year including lunch on Lion Challenge Day, rollerskating, parent and family socials, lunch for faculty & staff during Catholic Schools Week and a parenting seminar with dinner. HSA officers also coordinate two major fundraisers during the year, a fall fundraiser that benefits SMS and our sister school in Haiti, as well as our Mane Event that raises money to enrich the Saint Matthew experience. Previous projects include playground equipment, Timberline courtyard, iPads, buses for field trips, science lab equipment and technology equipment.
