Volunteer

There are plenty of ways to serve at SBS.  Many parents and friends of our community help in various ways and we look forward to helping you find an opportunity that fits your time and talents.  

Volunteer Application

To ensure the safety of our students, all volunteers are required to undergo fingerprinting, a criminal background check, and fill out a volunteer application.  If you desire to volunteer at SBS in any way, please fill out the following application (please note: this is NOT an employment application).

Prayer

Daily intercession for StoneBridge School is essential to invoke God’s wisdom, empowerment, direction, and blessings on each day and our children and the many activities in which they’re involved, and so is corporate prayer to sing His praises and lay current needs at His feet.  StoneBridge publishes a monthly Prayer Guide at the beginning of each year which lists the specific ministries and needs by name so all may pray for these together.  Goal Sheets also list specific family and school needs.  The following are ways to become more active in praying for StoneBridge:

  • Individual Prayer for needs listed on the monthly Prayer Guide.
  • StoneBridge Mothers’ Fellowship and Prayer, Moms in Touch on Mondays at 8:30 a.m. in room 209.

Room Mothers

The Room Mother Program is an extremely important and necessary adjunct to the daily life within the classrooms.  A Room Mother is a parent who is willing to directly serve the needs of the homeroom teacher.  Her gifts are utilized under the direct supervision of the homeroom teacher to directly aide  with manpower or finding others to help with classroom projects, parties, making food, student drills, crafts, bulletin boards, Special Day needs, graduation receptions (K5, 7th & 11th grade homerooms), and various other classroom needs that may arise.  Each homeroom needs at least one Room Mother and a pool of parents who can be called upon. 

Carpool Program

The Carpool Program is a service provided by StoneBridge parent volunteers to facilitate safe, efficient, and economical transportation of our precious children to and from school.  The coordinator provides new and returning parents with information about other families who live in close proximity for possible carpooling.  Parents, not the school, have the responsibility of working out the details for specific arrangements.

Carpool volunteers also serve in these ways:

  • Produce and distribute car numbers for parents’ cars for efficient school dismissals with Master List for the lower school.
  • Assist and direct students and parents at dismissal for safety.
  • Assist the first week in student arrivals at the lower school.

Parent Workdays

The Parent Workday Program consists of volunteer parents who provide services to the school on scheduled days to perform various tasks associated with the grounds and buildings on campus.  

Areas of need have traditionally been:

  • Painting
  • Pruning/Weeding 
  • Minor carpentry
  • Dry wall repair
  • Planting
  • Moving
  • Plumbing
  • Equipment repair
  • Cleaning

Public Relations

StoneBridge School has developed an image throughout Tidewater, and the nation as one of the premier K4-12 Christian schools. Much of that image has been developed through the consistent use of public relations. If parents have special skills in the area of Public Relations, advertising, broadcasting, writing, film, etc., StoneBridge School needs you. 

No matter how effective StoneBridge is at providing our parents and children with an opportunity for an unrivaled education, we will never achieve the excellence God has in mind for us unless we are able to shine our light throughout the Hampton Roads area.


Church Representative Program

This volunteer program is designed to build working relations among the churches of our families and StoneBridge School by having a member of the church act as a representative to keep his pastor and congregation informed about the many programs and special educational opportunities available for adults and children at StoneBridge. If you have a desire to spread the news about StoneBridge, please contact the Advancement office.


Cavaliers Club

StoneBridge School has a marvelous athletic program with team sports, individual sports, and cheerleading in which our children participate, governed by a dedicated staff of qualified and committed coaches.  By participating in the Cavaliers Club parents release coaches to instruct and build the character of Christ through the Biblical principles in the program.  StoneBridge School enjoys a reputation among other Christian schools and home school teams of Godly sportsmanship and demeanor on and off the field. 

A Cavaliers Club Member volunteer can participate by assisting the Athletic Department in:

  • Raising funds for uniforms, equipment, travel expenses, lodging, and special needs of individual sports
  • Transporting students to away games
  • Greeting parents and visitors at games
  • Selling and collecting tickets at appropriate games
  • Working the concession stand
  • Working the Spirit Shop

  • General maintenance of the gymnasium
  • Providing a Banquet at the end of each season
