A Catholic Girls School in the Benedictine Tradition

Parent Club

Parents

The Parent Club is a service organization to the school. All parents automatically become members by virtue of registering their daughters as students. The role of the Parent Club is to support the school’s effort in carrying out the school’s mission. The Club provides an important means by which parents can become involved in the life of the school. The Parent Club Board members serve as liaisons to the Administration.
