Purpose and History
The Mothers Club of St. Charles is a volunteer service club whose members are mothers, step-mothers, guardians and grandmothers of current St. Charles Students. They automatically acquire membership when their son or grandson attends St. Charles.
The Mothers Club, as an organization, has served St. Charles for decades. It has made considerable contributions to the St. Charles Community through its volunteer efforts and fundraising activities. It is the central volunteer organizing body for the school. In addition to our standing committees, mothers are often called upon to simply “help out.”
In the Spring of 2012, we conducted a review of the Mothers Club and embarked on a mission to give it more structure and focus so as to raise awareness and, hopefully, involve more mothers.
