Our goal at the Daly HSA is to bring the home and the school closer together, encouraging intelligent cooperation and partnership between parents, students, teachers, administration and staff in support of the educational development of young people. We promote the welfare of young people in the home, school and community. Our biggest goal is to raise the standard of the elementary school experience at Daly.


The goals are promoted through an educational program directed toward parents and teachers. They are developed through meetings, committees, projects and programs.


This year, we have a packed calendar of events intended to improve the educational experience as well as connect Daly community members to each other. Our intention is to offer these events and programs to children with very little or no cost to them. So, throughout the school year, the Daly HSA runs great fundraisers to help meet our goals. These fundraisers include a social for adults in November, a Fun Run for kids, a Read-a-thon in February, as well as fun events like plant sales in fall and spring, a holiday boutique in December, a pizza workshop in January, and more. Running these fundraising programs helps ensure that events like our Welcome Back Mixer, STEAM Night in October, International Night in April, along with the programs listed below, can remain free to all children.
