Central to Stone Ridge’s commitment to the Goals and Criteria of Sacred Heart education is the role our families play in the life of the School. Stone Ridge is fortunate to have an active parent community across the grade levels, and we have found that this positive parent participation and partnership results in an even stronger educational environment for our students and experience for all of our families.

Our parent events at Stone Ridge serve many purposes: providing an introduction for new parents to the School and its mission; building relationships with the Head of School, the Administration, and the faculty and staff; educating parents about curriculum and developmentally appropriate topics; strengthening the sense of community through connections to fellow parents; living the spiritual life through Mass; and fundraising.

The sequencing of these events is essential to building a healthy, positive relationship with our parents. We offer opportunities for parents to develop relationships with the Head of School and the heads and assistant heads of the divisions. Additionally, we provide ways for our parents to connect with the faculty and staff who are living the mission in delivering the curriculum. Equally important, we offer parents opportunities to connect with one another and build community.
