COMMITTEES & LEADERSHIP
The FSA is spearheaded by a leadership team consisting of a President, Vice-President and Chairs & Co-Chairs of various committees. Each committee focuses on key initiatives that foster connections through events and other activities.

President – As president of the FSA you are responsible for overseeing all aspects of the FSA and work closely with school administration to ensure continuity and communication between the parents/families and the school. You partner with and support all of committee chairs. You serve as an ex-officio member of the School Board and work in a strategic capacity to support school board initiatives. This is a one-year term.
Vice-President – The Vice-President shadows and supports the work of the current President, then assumes the role of President the next year. This is a 2-year commitment with the FSA.

Service: This committee helps create and coordinate meaningful service projects for OSM families and parishioners throughout the school year that foster a spirit of giving to our city, community and world.
Oktoberfest & Family Fun-Fest Committee: Traditionally an annual fall fundraising event, Oktoberfest is a fun, social gathering for OSM parents/guardians and parishioners to celebrate the start to fall, support neighborhood partners and to kick off fundraising for the OSM Blue Ribbon Annual Fund. The committee has a variety of assignments, including event planning, partner communication, merchandise and day of event set up/break down.
Note: The Family Fun-Fest is a day-time event for kids and family to enjoy together. Oktoberfest is an adult only event in the evening.
Signature Event Committee: This is an annual spring fundraising event for the OSM Blue Ribbon Annual Fund. The signature event has been held at different venues and themed differently each year. It is a fun, social gathering for OSM parents/guardians and parishioners (adults only event) that support fundraising for the OSM Blue Ribbon Annual Fund. The committee may have variety of assignments, including event planning, partner communication, merchandise and day of event set up/break down.
Photojournalist: OSM is always looking for photographers/videographers to capture all the exciting FSA events and school activities so that we have them to enjoy for years to come. Committee members will sign up to cover a variety of events.
Drop-Off Committee: One of the key components to a safe drop-off has been committed parent volunteers who assist in the arrival process in the morning, ensuring kids enter the school safely every morning. This is a great way to get to know the community and easy way to earn your volunteer hours – 30 mins will give you a full hour credit towards your 20 hours requirement each year per family.
Potpourri List: From time to time the school or another committee may require all hands on deck. In these situations we like to have a list of volunteers who could be available to help out. This “Potpourri” list may be called upon to assist with last-minute needs that are often a quick task on short notice. Examples include covering a lunch, setting up FSA events, etc. These are opportunities that provide flexibility to earn your volunteer hours.
