A school is only as strong as the partnership that is created between home and school. At St. Stan’s we believe in our mission of educating our students in a diverse and challenging environment. To this point, we look to parents for their leadership in providing their time and talent to aid in our efforts to reaching this point of excellence.
Every family is encouraged to make a meaningful commitment of time and energy to St. Stan’s School; this is particularly important in staffing our signature fundraising events, including the fall Boosterthon, the spring fundraiser and our end-of-year event. Other opportunities include chaperoning field trips, acting as room parents, assisting a teacher, lunch/recess assistance, organizing, handy-work around school, tutoring, etc.
