About Us

Who is the SSHA? We’re all the SSHA! We’re the parents and caretakers of students who attend Schuylkill Elementary. All you need to do be an active part of the SSHA community is stay involved with us as we improve Schuylkill for our kids!  


The SSHA “proper” is made up of a board of four and dozens of committees, each chaired and staffed by volunteer parents. These committees create most after-school activities for the students and provide vital in-school activities also. We run the yearbook, bingo nights, assemblies, the book fair, and senior family & friends day, just to name a few. There is a full committee list on another tab.  We raise funds throughout the year to pay for these programs, as well as additions to the school - like the outdoor classroom. 


There are a million different ways to volunteer with the SSHA. There are no meetings to attend, no dues, no obligations. Stay tuned to our Facebook and get on our e-mail list for up-to-date info on where you can help! 

With the help of our many volunteers and our fundraising efforts, SSHA has been able to support and enhance our students’ educational experience at Schuylkill Elementary in the following ways:

  • Promote ongoing communications between parents, teachers, and the administration
  • Provide funding for various activities and other needs of the school and students that are not available in the school budget
  • Provide enrichment activities, enhancing students’ education by bringing new concepts to light or by using old concepts in new ways
  • Sponsor recreation and entertainment activities to encourage students’ social skills, teamwork, leadership, competition, sportsmanship, and discipline
  • Build enthusiasm and improve our children’s outlook on school through a variety of student recognition programs
  • Encourage our children to understand the importance of giving back to our community by volunteering and contributing to philanthropic organizations, as we as encourage empathy through supporting those in need, especially in our own community.
