Welcome, from the HSA

Building the Future

Greetings Tiger Families,


It is my pleasure to welcome new and returning families to the 2019-2020 school year at School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens. I hope your summer has been memorable and refreshing. The faculty, staff and HSA Board have been working collaboratively to prepare for an exciting school year.


SWWFS is unique to this city because it serves families across all eight wards in the District of Columbia. As your HSA President, it is my goal to collectively engage our school and communities in various activities throughout the city. At School Without Walls at Francis -Stevens, we pride ourselves on our diversity, because in diversity, there is unity.


The Home School Association (HSA) is a group of parents, faculty and community members who promote and support SWWFS through fundraising, programming, and partnerships. The HSA needs YOU! Together, our families AND faculty make this school a success. You are vital in making sure the needs of the school community are met.


Family engagement is year-round, but our first HSA event is the Back-to-School Cookout on Saturday, September 7th. There will be food, fun and most importantly, families! Another event the HSA is responsible for is the Annual Auction on Saturday, November 16th. This is our most lucrative fundraiser for the school. Your participation in these and all events would be greatly appreciated. See the dates below for the HSA

Become an HSA Member

Donate to your HSA and/or become an HSA Member

Please join the School Without Walls at Francis Stevens Home School Association. This is one of the easiest ways to support SWWFS and to add value to what goes on in our classrooms! Your membership dues support extra curricular activities, classroom materials, field trips, graduation activities and access to neighborhood institutions like the Kennedy Center. These dues directly support your student’s classroom! A portion of your membership dues are allocated to your student’s grade level and made available to home room teacher(s) at that grade level.

Our HSA community needs your support in any way you can give; please donate whatever amount your family can contribute. Pay all at once or over time. Your family's donation qualifies you (and your family) for HSA membership which then entitles you to voting rights at HSA general meetings.
