Welcome to Parent Teacher Fellowship!
Following are messages from our President, Kristen Taylor and Vice President, Erika Romanini:
Parent Teacher Fellowship is an integral part of the fabric of Stockdale Christian School. We have the privilege to act as advocates, friends, fundraisers, supporters, cheerleaders, and standard bearers for the faculty, parents, administration and school board of SCS. We don’t take this privilege lightly. The PTF is made up of parents who love Jesus, love and want the very best for our children, and because of that, want the very best for SCS!
We know the investment that parents make to ensure that their child is educated well, not only academically, but more importantly, spiritually. We too are parents of students here at SCS, and like you, have prayerfully committed our time and energy into the community that makes up Stockdale Christian School.
PTF has many opportunities for involvement, from volunteering in the classroom as a Room Parent Coordinator, to prayer time every Monday morning where we have the honor of praying over the requests made by SCS students and faculty, to handing out booklets at The Shield Event – we never turn away anyone wanting to participate in anything PTF related.
We fundraise each year though The Shield Event. The funds raised reduce the additional expenses that families would normally pay beyond tuition. We provide for field trips, classroom technology, sports teams uniforms, STEAM/STEM programs, Quest for Space and teacher appreciation, to name a few. We arrange for meal trains if you’re in need and oversee uniform exchanges to help provide school uniforms for all of our families.
Parent Teacher Fellowship is a fantastic way to make friends and support SCS! Won’t you join us? Meetings are the first Friday of every month, in the Fireside Room at noon, and our meetings are open to any member of the SCS community!
We’re so glad the Lord has led you to SCS!
Kristen Taylor, PTF President
The 2020/2021 school year marks the tenth year I have had a child attending Stockdale Christian School. This also begins my sixth year serving on the PTF board, my first as head of fundraising. I feel incredibly blessed that my three children have been able to attend a school that clearly puts Christ at the center of all things. Our amazing teachers and staff work diligently to maintain a standard of excellence which parents desire.
PTF took an incredible leap of faith last year with our inaugural Shield Event, replacing years of selling magazines and cookie dough. Through our generous families and community, God blessed us with an event that grossed $143,500! We were able to fund our entire 2019/2020 PTF budget and set aside approximately $20,000 towards our dream project of a track and field.
As we start the 2020/2021 school year with the uncertainty of Covid-19, SCS PTF has again chosen to put our faith in The Lord and host The Shield Event on September 26th. We have been given the ability to make wise decisions based on faith, not fear, and this truth can strengthen us in uncertain times. Although we have several alternatives prepared, we rejoice that God has a purpose and trust He will provide. “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and application with thanksgiving, let your requests be make known unto God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Phil 4:6,7)
All money raised through the Shield Event directly supports our students and staff through covering field trips, classroom technology, sports uniforms and equipment, and music and band programs to name a few. We pray that you will join us in taking up the shield of faith and support SCS!
Erika Romanini, PTF Vice President

PTF Family Services Ministries
The PTF and parents have had awesome opportunities to help coordinate blessings to other students or SCS families in need through this wonderful program!
Family Services Ministries is a service FROM SCS families TO SCS families in need. This need could be for prayer, a card, a meal for their family, etc. Some examples of past requests for assistance have been due to major life changes, such as having a baby, illness, surgery, bereavement, absence of family members, etc.
