Parents’ Association.

The SCS Parents’ Association works to benefit our girls by linking the School and its families.

Throughout the year the PA hosts many social events to bring parents together, as a Grade and as a full community. Additionally, it fundraises in support of the varied programs and activities that augment the SCS experience for our girls.

A Message From The PA President

Welcome to an exciting year at St. Clement’s! All SCS parents are members of the Parents’ Association.

We are parent volunteers who work together with the Faculty and Staff to enrich the learning and the experiences of our Clementines. Our aim is to maximize parent engagement and strengthen the values and initiatives that are at the heart of our school.

The partnership between parent volunteers and SCS is fundamental to building a close-knit community and is essential to creating a strong foundation for the academic, social, and personal growth of each student. In short, we need you and we value you. We understand that most of you have many other commitments and responsibilities, we can work with that! Whether you can be involved on an intermittent, casual basis or you can provide a greater, sustained commitment, there are many ways to be involved.

I can promise you that if you are involved, you will see first-hand that sharing your time and talents really does enhance the SCS experience for all of our daughters.

I would also like to invite all parents to attend our monthly PA meetings. These take place at 8:30 a.m. in Powell Hall. Typically they occur on the first Tuesday of each month, but there are a few exceptions. Exact meeting dates are listed on Edsby and will also be announced in enews. At these meetings we discuss upcoming events and activities and often host Faculty and Staff members to speak about topical subjects or School initiatives. These meetings are a great forum for Convenors and Grade Parents to communicate updates as well as get support and feedback.

I look forward to getting to know each of you better during the upcoming school year!

Parent Socials

Parent-only social events, with funding from the Parents’ Association, are organized for the prime entry years of Grades 1, 7, and 9 to foster a sense of community and to allow parents to get to know each other.

Locations will be published in e-news and by email. 4-12 parents are needed to help with promotion, setup, and clean-up for each event. Junior School parent social will be organized on an individual class basis.

Occasional Volunteering

If you are not sure you can make a commitment for a specific activity, but are willing to volunteer for an hour or two occasionally, please contact the Parents’ Association Volunteer Coordinator. Volunteers may be called upon to help at any Parents’ Association or school event.



LINCWell is a full school approach, designed to craft a school experience for each of our girls that is characterized by Learning, Individualization, Nurturing, Creativity, and Wellness.



Beyond the Classroom

With opportunities to get involved in clubs, trips, and volunteering in the community, learning doesn’t stop at the classroom doors.




Our commitment to excellence in learning means being in tune with the world around us, and always looking ahead.
