  • 2020-21 Special Events

    Join us for a variety of special events that support the Steward mission.


Each year, the school and its supporting organizations, the Alumni Association, Parents Association, Spartan Club, and ArtLink, host a variety of special events that support the mission of Steward. These organizations' primary purpose is community building and “friend-raising,” and many of their events throughout the year are either free or require a small fee to cover costs. Periodically, they may host events, raffles, sales, and membership drives to raise money to support Steward’s mission. In the past, this money has been used to purchase technology, athletic equipment, and other classroom needs.

We hope you will join us at one or more of these events to gather with friends old and new.
