HSA Executive Board Elections for 2021-2022

April 15, 2021


Dear SVMS Families,


Our annual SVMS Home School Association elections are scheduled to take place at the May board meeting.  In compliance with the HSA bylaws, open positions are posted to the school community in the Family Newsletter for three consecutive weeks prior to elections.  We currently have several open positions and I ask each of you to discern whether you may be able to serve our school community during the 2021-2022 school year.  We are in need of collaborative parent leaders to help shepherd HSA’s wide array of activities for the next school year.  Will you make the commitment to serve?


Open positions for the 2021-2022 HSA Board include:

  • PRESIDENT: 1 year term limit. May be occupied by one or two individuals.
  • VICE PRESIDENT: 1 year term limit. Must be committed to serving as (co)president in the following school year. May be occupied by one or two individuals.
  • PRE SCHOOL REPRESENTATIVE: Must have a child in one of the preschool grades. Work with administration, teachers and parents on preschool specific events and topics. 
  • PRIMARY SCHOOL REPRESENTATIVE: Must have a child in one of the primary school grades. Work with administration, teachers and parents on middle school specific events, fundraising and topics.
  • MIDDLE SCHOOL REPRESENTATIVE: Must have a child in one of the middle school grades. Work with administration, teachers and parents on middle school specific events, fundraising and topics.

The following individuals will retain their board positions for the 2021-2022 school year: 

  • Amanda McNamara, Secretary (Year Three of 1-5 year commitment)
  • Annette Draeger and Nicole Van Slyck, Treasurers (Year Two of 2-5 year commitment)

We thank all members of the HSA Board who will move on next year: Sheila Borges Rajguru, Vice President; Carla Giammarino Ashukian, Pre School Representative; Melissa Teagan, Primary School Representative; and Jennifer Blunda, Middle School Representative.

If you are interested in applying for any of the open positions, please submit a brief bio to svmshsapres@gmail.com by Sunday, May 2, 2021.  The elections will take place at the HSA Board Meeting on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 and current board members will discuss and vote upon all interested candidates.  If you have questions about the work of HSA or would like to seek additional information before applying, please reach out to us.  I am happy to speak with you about your interest and ways you can contribute to HSA.


Many thanks for your consideration,

Jen Nolan

HSA President 2020-2021
