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 St. Clement’s! We are excited to welcome you into the St. Clement’s School Parents’ Association. All parents and guardians at SCS are members of the Parents’ Association. Together, we volunteer and work in partnership with the School to enrich the learning and the experiences of our Clementines. We hope that through our activities, we can strengthen the wonderful community spirit that is at the heart of SCS.
One of the main ways we engage the parent community is through the Grade Parent program. Grade Parents are a key communication link between the PA and the parents in their class and help with the promotion of various events (including parent socials) and initiatives. The PA is also involved in fundraising to support activities that benefit all the students at the school. For example, we have donated to the roof renewal project, which will provide a space for Grades 1-12 to play and learn. We have also supported speakers, workshops, and other exciting initiatives.
While we are all very much looking forward to the start of a new school year, I also know we hoped for a return to some of the annual events and gatherings the PA looks forward to hosting. The COVID protocols in place are designed to keep our entire community healthy and safe.
These safety measures mean that the PA’s favourite events, such as the Welcome Coffee on the first day of school and the Used Uniform Sale, will remain on hold. However, the PA has been hard at work coming up with new ideas that will help keep the parent community engaged and connected over the course of this year. We are also looking at other creative ways to fundraise so that we can still support our girls and the entire SCS community.
I hope that you will consider volunteering with the PA this year, even if it is only virtually for now. It is through the amazing commitment of our parent volunteers that the SCS community is made that much stronger. As a Clementine myself, who used to love when my mom would volunteer at the School, I promise that your daughter will love having you involved. You will also see firsthand how amazing the community at SCS is.
The PA will be communicating with you through the PA Edsby Group, through the weekly SCS enews, and through your daughter’s Grade Parents. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, another member of the PA Executive team, or your Grade Parents with any questions you might have.
I look forward to getting to know each of you better during the upcoming school year!

Parent socials are an important way for SCS parents to meet and reconnect with other parents in their daughter’s grade. These gatherings will look and feel differently this year than they have in the past. Please watch your inbox for emails from your Grade Parents. It is our intention that these popular events will continue to bring the parent community together and provide SCS parents with the opportunity to get to know each other a little bit better!
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.
