Welcome to the St. Charles Motherhood of the Brotherhood
You may be asking “Who are the members of the Mother’s Club? What do they do?” All mothers, step-mothers, guardians, grandmothers, etc. of present or past students are automatically members in this organization that serves St. Charles as supportive volunteers and ambassadors for school events and fundraising activities. We welcome your involvement in any amount that your time, talent and interests permit. We meet to connect, network and build community within the Motherhood of the St. Charles Brotherhood. The school asks for us to lend a hand in events that support our sons, their teachers and the administration. We welcome you to join us throughout the year at the social gatherings organized by the Mothers Club to find out more about how you can get involved at St. Charles.
Even if you are unable to attend meetings or volunteer for an event, you are still a very important part of the Mothers Club! Attend whenever you can and know you will always be warmly welcomed!
