SIP (Stratford Interested Parents)

SIP is Stratford's volunteer parent organization. Its purpose is to enhance each student's school experience by supporting the faculty and administration through a variety of planned events during the school year. SIP provides the volunteers and funds for activities such as the Football Tailgate Party, Daddies' and Special Friends' Breakfast, Field Days, School Dances, Faculty Appreciation Breakfasts, Open Houses, and Uniform Resales. In order to ensure that all SIP events are a success, it takes a large number of volunteers. Participation is open to all interested and enthusiastic parents, guardians, or even grandparents of students enrolled at Stratford Academy.
