The Voluntourist a remarkable memoir about losing your father, accepting your fate, and finding your destiny by volunteering around the world for numerous worthy causes: Hurricane Katrina disaster relief in New Orleans, helping special needs children in China, studying climate change in Ecuador, lending a hand—and a heart—at a Palestinian refugee camp in the Middle East, to name but a few. Ken Budd's emotional journey is as inspiring and affecting as those chronicled in Little Princes and Three Cups of Tea.   At once a true story of powerful family bonds, of sacrifice, of self-discovery, The Voluntourist is an all-too-human, real-life hero whom you will not soon forget.

Welcome Stuart Families, Faculty, & Staff!


On behalf of the JEB Stuart PTSA, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of you to what promises to be a productive and exciting school year at J.E.B. Stuart High School. The purpose of the PTSA is to support the faculty, staff, parents, and most especially our students.

Your PTSA Executive Committee has been busy developing the details for activities aimed at enhancing the educational environment for all of our students.  Among our initiatives for the school year are:

What’s the “S”?
– The “S” in “PTSA” stands for “Students.”  The PTSA is another means to grow student leadership skills and provide a voice in school affairs.  To that end, we are seeking student candidates for the position of “Vice President, Raiders Care” and have opened the PTSA committee positions to student participants.

Education Partnerships
– A program offering students free access to on-line ACT/SAT/PSAT tutoring and practice tests; on-site tutoring classes and practice tests; and free seminars and workshops to introduce parents and students to the college application and selection process.

Strength Through Diversity
Working to draw Stuart’s diverse student populations together for common volunteer opportunities and to improve overall community understanding.

Enhancing Community Communications -  T
he PTSA serves as an information hub for collecting and disseminating news about Stuart Community activities.  New this year is our initiative to provide all club’s with web space and free training to better utilize technology for their member needs and outreach.

In order to be successful, we know that the support and involvement of the parents, students, faculty and staff at Stuart, as well as the business leaders in our community will be of utmost importance. Your first opportunity to show your support will be to become a member of the J.E.B. Stuart High School PTSA. We encourage each of you to show your commitment by visiting our on-line registration page register.stuartptsa.org and joining now.

The second way to show your support will be to participate in the numerous events and programs that we have planned throughout the year. Your participation might be that of a committee member, volunteer, or merely as an attendee. Whatever level of participation you select, your time and involvement will certainly be appreciated.

You also can show your support a third way by providing us your comments regarding our PTSA efforts or suggestions or ideas for other potential PTSA initiatives. To facilitate this, please feel free to contact me directly.

We in the PTSA believe that it is of ultimate importance that we do everything we can to enhance the learning environment of our students as they truly are our future. It will take all of us working together to ensure that this happens.  We look forward to working with you this year.

Thank you,
Kate Walter: 2013-14 J.E.B. Stuart H.S. PTSA President
