Welcome to St. Charles!

 Purpose and History of the Mothers Club


The Mothers Club of St. Charles has served St. Charles for decades and 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, which run specific events, mothers often are called upon to simply “help out” at the school.
