Parent Network

All Stoneleigh-Burnham parents, grandparents, and other family members are part of the Parent Network. Parent Network members foster collaboration between parents, faculty, staff, and students to support our school’s mission. Here’s how you can help:

  • Volunteer to assist the school in areas of need and enhance the student experience in different departments of the school (e.g. athletics, riding, library, performing arts, campus gardening, guest lecturers, etc).
  • Serve as a liaison for department specific volunteer groups (examples listed above).
  • Welcome new families to SBS.
  • Support the SBS Annual Fund through a yearly phonathon.
  • Support the parent community with information sharing and creative planning.
  • Establish project committees to accomplish short-term or long-term tasks.
  • Donate to the Annual Fund.
  • Host events for prospective families locally or in their geographic region.
  • Serve as Admissions Ambassadors.
  • Support our daughters in their efforts to achieve and become their best selves.

The Parent Network works to ensure that parents and family members have an opportunity to be involved in the school community, regardless of their geographical or time constraints and interests.

Meetings and informal gatherings help the parent community share their experiences with others and learn more about SBS.
