The John Eaton Home and School Association (HSA) is a non-profit corporation established for the mutual cooperation between parents, school staff and the community to work for the best interests of John Eaton students. Specifically, the HSA raises funds to implement a wide range of educational and enrichment initiatives that augment the academic experience of all Eaton students.
Several of the educational programs at Eaton are unique to our school and are not funded by the DC government. For example, in school year 2010-2011, the Eaton HSA has paid for the full-time music and art programs for grades 1-5, the enrichment programs that forms partnership with local organizations such as Discovery Theatre, the Washington Opera, foreign embassies; and tools that facilitate academic instruction such as the STARS online assessment software and classroom supplies for each of the 19 lead teachers. The HSA even paid for the basketball hoops in the multi-purpose room!
HSA membership is open to all families whose children attend John Eaton School and to all John Eaton faculty and staff. There are no membership costs or dues. All parents and staff are encouraged to attend the HSA meetings the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00pm in the John Eaton Library. The monthly meetings provide a forum to discuss common issues or concerns, plan fundraising activities, and exchange ideas.
Childcare for children age 4 and older is provided by JEAP with advanced sign-up.
