Roslyn Home and School association was officially established in 1940, but it is well known that the association has been around much longer than that. The oldest home and school association in Quebec, the Roslyn Home and School Association, better known as HandS, has a long standing tradition of fundraising, building school spirit and helping to create an enriched educational life for the students and families of Roslyn.
We fundraise through our annual pizza lunches, book fair, and parents’ dance. Money raised is used for many projects. In the past, HandS has been able to financially support the purchasing of playground equipment, painting of play yard games, robotic equipment for the science program, books and supplies for the library as well as the literacy department, supplies and ongoing maintenance for both the Computer Lab and Health room.
The aim of school spirit events is to foster a sense of community and pride for the children attending Roslyn, staff and their families. We build school spirit by hosting our annual Welcome Back Event and Spring Open House, New Family and Kindergarten Family Welcome, Teacher Appreciation Week, as well as our Talent Night.
The Roslyn Home and School Association is comprised of volunteer parents. If you have time or ideas, we encourage you to get involved by attending our monthly meetings, holding an executive position on our leadership team or volunteering at any of our events. When we work together, the possibilities are endless!
