Parent Teacher Fellowship
Welcome to Parent Teacher Fellowship!
Following is a message from our President, Kristen Taylor:
Parent Teacher Fellowship is an integral part of the fabric of Stockdale Christian School. We have the privilege to act as advocates, friends, fundraisers, supporters, cheerleaders, and standard bearers for the faculty, parents, administration and school board of SCS. We don’t take this privilege lightly. The PTF is made up of parents who love Jesus, love and want the very best for our children, and because of that, want the very best for SCS!
We know the investment that parents make to ensure that their child is educated well, not only academically, but more importantly, spiritually. We too are parents of students here at SCS, and like you, have prayerfully committed our time and energy into the community that makes up Stockdale Christian School.
PTF has many opportunities for involvement, from volunteering in the classroom as a Room Parent Coordinator, to prayer time every Monday morning where we have the honor of praying over the requests made by SCS students and faculty, to handing out booklets at The Shield Event – we never turn away anyone wanting to participate in anything PTF related.
We fundraise each year though The Shield Event. The funds raised reduce the additional expenses that families would normally pay beyond tuition. We provide for field trips, classroom technology, sports teams uniforms, STEAM/STEM programs, Quest for Space and teacher appreciation, to name a few. We arrange for meal trains if you’re in need and oversee uniform exchanges to help provide school uniforms for all of our families.
Parent Teacher Fellowship is a fantastic way to make friends and support SCS! Won’t you join us? Meetings are the first Friday of every month, in the Fireside Room at noon, and our meetings are open to any member of the SCS community!
We’re so glad the Lord has led you to SCS!
Kristen Taylor, PTF President

SCS Annual Shield Event
The Shield Event is the annual PTF dinner and auction gala event that serves as the only fundraiser for the SCS PTF. Since its inception in 2019, the Shield Event has raised over $500,000 for the direct benefit of the students and staff of Stockdale Christian School. 100% of the donated monies raised at the Shield Event remains at SCS and are used to directly benefit our students and staff. We invite you to join us at our monthly meetings to review a full copy of our annual budget. Meetings are held on the first Friday of the month at 12:30pm in the Fireside Room.
In 2020, the PTF began a capital campaign for a track and field project on the Marella Avenue field. We have, through the generous gifts of Shield Event attendees and with an individual bequest, raised an additional $500,000 specifically earmarked for this project. We hope to begin construction in the spring of 2023 on this fantastic addition to not only SCS, but to the community at large.
The Shield Event is held annually, in mid September, with individual tickets, table and corporate sponsorship opportunities available to purchase. We collect silent and live auction items year round from generous members and companies throughout our community. If you would like to support the Shield Event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

PTF Family Services Ministries
The PTF and parents have had awesome opportunities to help coordinate blessings to other students or SCS families in need through this wonderful program!
Family Services Ministries is a service FROM SCS families TO SCS families in need. This need could be for prayer, a card, a meal for their family, etc. Some examples of past requests for assistance have been due to major life changes, such as having a baby, illness, surgery, bereavement, absence of family members, etc.
