The Parents' Association is devoted to developing the community at Saint Stephen of Hungary School. Below are several of the committees dedicated to this mission.
Bi-Annual Uniform Sale
The Parents' Association facilitates a used uniform sale twice yearly. These sales occur in the weeks following the school’s switch from summer to winter uniform and vice versa. Parents are encouraged to donate gently used uniforms that their children have outgrown.
Blazers are $20, all other items are $5.
Lost & Found
Family Fun Event: Ice Skating
The Parents' Association organizes a special afternoon of ice skating at Wollman Rink in Central Park, typically in late January or early February. Tickets will be sold prior to the event.
New Family Welcome
Each spring the Parents' Association takes the opportunity to welcome new families to our school community by hosting a welcoming social event for parents of new students joining Saint Stephen for the upcoming year. New families have the opportunity to meet faculty, staff, and parents of current families at Saint Stephen.
In the fall, this committee will organize a wine and cheese reception for each Back to School night.
Grandparents/Special Friends Day
Each spring, St. Stephen of Hungary School in conjunction with St. Stephen of Hungary School Foundation hosts Grandparents/Special Friends Day. This is an opportunity for visitors to attend a special mass with the students and to visit their classroom to get a special glimpse of the day.
The PA supports this initiative by organizing and serving coffee and assorted refreshments in the morning.
Family Fun Event: Sports Outing
Each year the Parents Association organizes a family-fun sports event, usually a NY Mets Game at Citi Field. This event is a fun way to celebrate the end of the school year. Tickets will be sold prior to the event.
As part of National Catholic Schools Week, our school holds a special Teacher Appreciation Day. On that day, the PA sponsors a Teacher Appreciation Lunch for all of our teachers and staff members.
Students are encouraged to make hand-made cards/letters to their teachers expressing their appreciation. In May, in conjunction with National Teacher Appreciation Day, the PA organizes a week of surprises and appreciation for our faculty.
