Every year the Parents Association provides support for some of the teachers’ copy needs. This help is always greatly appreciated; and teachers are looking forward to the support again this year. The schedule is flexible to accommodate your time and for each volunteer this activity takes approximately one hour per week or every other week depending on the number of volunteers.
Parents Association volunteers assist Ms. Sterling and Ms. Shannon in the weeks leading up to the Annual Art Show with mounting and labeling art work. Volunteers coordinate set-up the day before the show and prepare a small wine and cheese reception.

Knock. Knock. Knock. A room full of children quiets down and guesses who will come through the door. The excited children squeal with delight as they see their parent, grandparent, caregiver, or special friend appear with a book under their arm. Anticipation builds all week as the children wonder who will be the next Mystery Reader.

Successfully launched by the Parents’ Association, the Mystery Reader Program is offered at Saint Stephen for Pre-K 3 through 3rd grade. The program helps develop a love of reading and the chance to share favorite books with classmates. Many Mystery Readers bring favorite books from home, but books can also be borrowed from the Library. Please consider donating a copy of the book to the Library so that all students may learn to love these special books.

Please contact your Class Parent to sign up for Mystery Reader.

Each kit contains exactly what your child’s teacher needs for next year. Volunteers work with school administration on gathering a list of supplies for each teacher.
