Family & School Association - FSA

The OLW Family & School Association consists of all school parents, guardians, teachers, administrators and our pastor, acting collectively on behalf of Our Lady of the Wayside School and our children. Active participation and cooperation has been a vital part of the effectiveness of our Family & School Association and has been the foundation of a caring school community.

Our Lady of the Wayside Family & School Association has several purposes. Its primary purpose is to promote communication among parents, guardians, teachers, and administrators, with focus on the educational and spiritual development of our children. Additionally, FSA promotes good will and cooperation among parents, administration, faculty, school board, and parish. Finally, it directs and coordinates parental support for special activities, programs, social events, and fundraising.

The volunteer program is coordinated through the Family and School Association.  The FSA is able to provide so much to OLW School because of the many parent volunteers who donate time and talents.  We strongly encourage all families to volunteer for at least three jobs, including one related to the annual auction.  Please contact our volunteer captain, Erika Newell at to receive your personal link to the electronic volunteer sign-up site.
