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!
We understand that this will be an exceptional year for your sons and for our entire St. Charles Family. We are grateful to Mr. Lower, the Administration and Faculty for their efforts during these unprecedented times to maintain the integrity and tradition of a St. Charles education and experience for our sons, in a manner that endeavors to preserve the health and safety of all. This year’s activities may not look like those of the past. We are committed to supporting and showing grace to our faculty and administration as they provide direction moving forward. We will look forward to talking to you about the following annual events, if and as they are determined eligible to proceed: The Cardinal Christmas Auction / The Mother & Son Dance / Faculty Appreciation Lunches / Senior Night
