Stuart Parent Association

About

Organized in 1971, the Stuart Parent Association (SPA) serves to foster parents’ interest in the school and involve them in enhancing the quality of their daughters’ lives through enrichment activities designed to support both student and parent.

The organization also functions as a communications conduit between faculty, students and parents. The work of SPA is led by the Executive Council, consisting of SPA's elected officers and the Head of School. The Executive Council, which meets monthly, coordinates events and supports the school in many areas.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Bookbag School Store

The Bookbag, Stuart's school store has some fun volunteer opportunities for anyone who can devote an hour and a half each week or every other week working in the store from 11:45-1:15. Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays still have open shifts. Tasks include ringing up students and some light restocking. The best part about this volunteer opportunity is interacting with the students. It's a great way to get to know many of the girls and even faculty and staff who often stop by. If you're interested please reach out to Diane McKee dnmckee19@gmail.com or 609-577-0526.

We have some great new items now available in the Bookbag: Yeti Drink Cups with Stuart Logo, Stuart Stadium Blankets, and baseball caps. Please stop by or shop online for all of your Stuart Spirit wear and accessory needs!

Encore Emporium - Gently Used Uniform Store

The Encore Emporium has gently used uniforms and is open all year. If you need any items, stop by the closet in the C corridor or order online and pick up at the front desk.
