In her message to the SSAMPTA officers and to the Parent Section Representatives (PSR), Sister Josefina emphasized the meaning of “stewardship” and that everyone must embody this value in handling the affairs of SSAMPTA. She also emphasized the need for building a strong relationship between the school and the parents, to value respect for one another and to acknowledge that despite differences, cooperation can be achieved.  This was likewise emphasized by Mr. Ordoñez in his acceptance speech. He further emphasized the need for each parent serving as PLR/PSR in the SSAMPTA to observe the values of Professionalism, Teamwork and Accountability. Furthermore, he stressed that stewardship entails responsibility and commitment from all those who serve in the PTA.
