The St. Emily Family School Association is a wonderful organization designed to encourage parent involvement, support our wonderful school and build our sense of school community. It is an honor to serve as President. The dedication of so many wonderful volunteers makes FSA the great organization it is today. I would like to thank the many individual volunteers involved directly with the FSA for their outstanding commitment to the Hot Lunch program,  Santa’s Workshop, Book Fair, Fun Fair, fundraising, and so much more. Remember that every parent that has a child attending St. Emily School is already a member! You can help St. Emily School and Parish be an even better place by getting directly involved or simply supporting what is happening. Wishing you a wonderful school year!
