The Parent Association Calendar Begins

Posted by Rebecca Olgeirson on 9/19/2018

I hope September finds you well and your family in a back-to-school routine.


One of my goals as your Parent Association president this year is direct monthly communication from the PA to your inbox. We had a great turnout at our first general meeting last Friday, but I understand many parents simply can’t make our meetings. (And that’s OK.) I hope that between the school communications, its new website, the Stanley British Primary app, and this email that everyone will feel connected to our SBPS community.


PA Meeting As I mentioned at our meeting, the PA includes all parents and we provide the “icing on the cake” for the Stanley school year. We are able to do that through volunteer efforts, social events, and fundraising. By now our grocery card program has officially kicked off and you should’ve received detailed info at Back-to-School night. If you missed picking up a card or need additional cards (or explanation), please stop by the Stanley Store this Friday between 8-8:45, where I will be helping out. Or you can contact our amazing fundraising chair, Emily Schlueter,


Upcoming September PA Events:

  • This Friday September 21: K12 Sock Hop 6 -7:30 p.m. in the ballroom.
    Come ready to dance at this fun, family event — poodle skirts optional! Thanks to our wonderful volunteers, especially Jodie Royer for pulling this together.

  • Thursday September 27: Bike & Carpool to School Day
    This is an opportunity to explore different and more environmentally friendly ways to get to school, to meet neighbors with whom your kids can bike and you can carpool, to learn about new and safe bike routes to Stanley.
        We are planning group rides from the following neighborhoods: Congress Park, Hilltop/Crestmoor, Mayfair, north Lowry, S & SE Lowry, E Colfax, N & S Stapleton, possibly Wash Park. If yours is not listed and you are interested, please let us know.
        We are also recruiting neighborhood leaders. The role of a leader is to reach out to neighbors, designate a meeting time and location (can be your house), design a safe route to school, and help guide the ride. We can help with all of that. For more information, please contact Adam Feerst at, phone/text 303-870-0487.


Finally, an idea suggested at our first PA meeting was brainstorming ways to connect and support the needs of the local community beyond our school. I welcome your thoughts on this topic as we explore further. Feel free to email me directly at


Thanks for your involvement in our kids’ school. Your time is valued and very much appreciated.


See you in the carpool line!
