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:
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.
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:

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.

If you have a desire to spread the news about StoneBridge, please contact the Advancement office.
