Important Announcement from HSA Officers

Dear McCall Community,

It is with sincere regret that the Current HSA board will be stepping down.  Almost a year and a half ago we were asked to help the HSA navigate a difficult transition with vacancies in the newly elected board.  Over the past year it has been our pleasure to continue the successes of the HSA, but we feel it is time to turn it over to a fully elected board.  

Please know that though we will no longer be formally involved in the HSA as officials, we will continue to support the good works of the HSA and our community.

Nominations and elections for the new board will be held over the coming month, we encourage everyone’s involvement in the election, and we look forward to transitioning to the newly elected officials. We will remain in our roles until the special election and work with the newly elected Officers on the transition.


Cari Akula, Peggy Banaszek, Fran Sandrow


现HSA董事会即将离任,我们深表遗憾。差不多一年半以前,我们被要求帮助HSA在新当选的董事会中出现空缺,进行艰难的过渡. 我们很高兴继续HSA的成功,但我们认为是时候把它交给一个完全选举产生的董事会了。

McCall HSA Fundraising Update

                                                                                                       September 2019

Dear McCall Family,

We start each new school year with enthusiasm, nerves, and high hopes and our children build on top of the skills they worked hard to build the year before. Each year our school is a reflection, not of a single moment, but of the many moments leading up to now. Through your support of the McCall Home and School Association (HSA) last year, we are building toward a better McCall for the sake of all of our students. Our sincere and enthusiastic thank you to the hundreds of donors and volunteers who made last year’s activities so successful.

In the 2018-2019 school year we raised $155,000! Some of these funds came from ticket and t-shirt sales at school-based events such as the Halloween Party, Scholastic Book Sale, Art to Remember, BoxTops, Election Day Bake Sales, and the McCall Relays. Of that total $83,000 was raised at the 2019 McCall Gala which netted $48,000. Over the course of the year, we had more than 200 donors as well as successful grant applications to our neighbors at the Society Hill Civic Association and the Washington West Trust.

Some of the funds raised were spent last year, while a significant portion was held to fund activities and needs in this upcoming school year. In the 2018-2019 school year, your donations to the HSA funded academic needs such as:

● Study Island software licenses used by students in grades 3-8 to reinforce academic skills;

● 10 iPads for an ESOL technology integration pilot;

● A new refrigerator for the school nurse’s office and a new refrigerator for facilities staff; and

  ● Teacher and staff appreciation meals and monthly school community events like the Spring Carnival.

All financial reports can be found online at:

Approximately $50,000 of the raised funds are to continue our annual contract with EducationWorks, which provides a full-time staff member at McCall to work with all students on structured play and recess as well as a restorative justice program in the middle school. Our new resource is in the process of coming on board and we look forward to announcing them soon.

We have a vision of providing our students with the tools to fuel their curiosity and prepare them for their future learning. Last year we had a goal to raise funds to build a Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) Lab at McCall. Through your generosity, the HSA has funded a seed account to start the planning and design for this important project. We are actively working with the School District through their Capital process so that the total cost and timeline can be determined.

Finally, it is important that we continue to build the strength of our school, its academics, its support system, and our students. The HSA anticipates that we will need to raise at least $60,000 in the 2019-2020 school year in order to respond to the requests from students, teachers, families, and staff for the tools and resources to help all McCall students to achieve this year and in the future. Please support the McCall HSA (a 501(c)(3)) by donating via PayPal Giving Fund at

Communication Plan

Dear McCall Family,

As we reflect on our 1st year in our roles and prepare for our 2nd year, we have found opportunities to improve how we communicate and engage with all of you. Our goal is to have a communication plan that includes channels that are accessible by and convenient for our diverse families in order to maximize engagement with the school and its efforts. Effective with the first day of the 2019-2020 school year, the HSA will have the following communication plan:

Home and School Association Monthly Meeting – We will be holding the meeting on one Saturday morning per month via Facebook Live. This allows parents and guardians to participate from home and for a recording to exist for viewing at convenient times. In the previous school year we tried a variety of meeting times and locations and received feedback that meetings were not convenient. We hope this approach will be more convenient for all.

McCall Google Calendar – As event dates and times are confirmed, they will be put onto the McCallSchoolCalendar google calendar. To connect it to your personal google calendar follow these steps: go into your personal google calendar and on the left side menu find ‘Other calendars; Click ‘+’; Choose ‘Subscribe to Calendar’; Under ‘Add Calendar’ type mccallschoolcalendar and press enter.

McCall Social Media – The McCall HSA manages Friends of McCall on Facebook (remember to answer the 3 questions to join) and @McCallElementary on Instagram.

As much as possible, we post frequently about news and events relevant to our school community. In compliance with School District guidance, neither of these sites are accepting advertisements.

School District of Philadelphia Social Media – For urgent messages on school closures and news along with notices about upcoming School District events, everyone is encouraged to follow the School District of Philadelphia on social media. They can be found at School District of Philadelphia on Facebook, @PHLschools on Twitter, and Philly_schools on Instagram.

Monthly Email Newsletter – There will be a free monthly email that includes news, events, and upcoming important dates sent to all email addresses in the McCall HSA database. In order to subscribe to the email, please include an email address on the Home and School Association Membership Form everyone should receive in the beginning of the school year.

2018-19 School Year Appreciation

Dear McCall Family,

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the McCall Faculty and Staff Appreciation Breakfast yesterday. As the school year comes to a close, I am reminded of this quote by Arthur Ashe, “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” At McCall, we do what we can so that our faculty, staff, and students have what they need to succeed. Look no further than these highlights from what we accomplished together: 100 Book ChallengeMcCall GalaBlue and Gold DaySpring CarnivalAnnie, Jr.McCall RelaysScholastic Book FairSpring CleanupElection Day Bake SalesWarm Fuzzies Winter Accessories Drive, and the Halloween Party. Thank you to Elle for quietly managing our school’s lost and found, donating unclaimed items to a local charity. Thank you to McCall Spirit (formerly Uniforms) Chair Mizuki Harris, Nancy Lin, and volunteers for your herculean efforts! Everything we do at McCall is truly a team effort and it’s what makes our community so vibrant.

We’re ending the school year on a high note:

The HSA is here to serve as a vital bridge between home and school. Per the Coffee with the Principal, to ensure the safety of faculty, staff, and students, the District has initiated a paint stabilization project.

McCall HSA通过教育和宣传继续为学校社区服务:

  • McCall HSA为新的教育委员会和市议会提供了证据,证明校长,教职员工和家庭需要更多地投入到学校预算和资本改进的优先次序;
  • McCall HSA与学区运营总监Danielle Floyd,Nicole Ward,Alfred Howard以及PHL John Barber基金合作,为他们提供了已知资本需求的参观,并在此期间为教师提供了投入;
  • McCall老师Mabel Sei,父母Ling Gao和我参加了亚裔美国人联合会与负责人William Hite,Jr。博士的听力会议,为多语种学生和家庭提供支持;
  • McCall HSA与Principal Stephanie McKenna主持了周六早上的听力会议,因此移民家庭可以分享想法和关注点;
  • McCall HSA与FACE办公室,Grants Development办公室以及费城家庭和学校委员会会面,了解家庭和学校合作伙伴关系的最佳实践以及如何使我们的资金流多样化;
  • 和McCall HSA举办了日间和晚间会议,更新了HSA网站以包含翻译文件,并通过我们的志愿者运营的微信组为全文的家庭提供全天候支持。

虽然McCall HSA将继续倡导更多资源,但事实仍然是我们学校现在有许多关键需求。点击这里阅读我们从教职员工处收到的请求。点击这里阅读我们迄今为止的筹款活动。过去的McCall HSA资助了EducationWorks,为学生K-5提供结构化休息。 EducationWorks扩展了为学生提供恢复性司法程序的活动。 HSA必须筹集53,000美元才能单独为EducationWorks提供资金。每一美元都有很长的路要走,以提供我们的校长,教职员工和学生成功所需的资源。请点击此处进行免税捐赠以支持我们的学校。
