Parents' Club

Goals of the Parents' Club

The Mount de Sales Academy Parents’ Club is open to all current and past parents. The Parents’ Club has two main goals:

  • For parents, administration, faculty and students to work together for the benefit of Mount de Sales Academy; and
  • To support Mount de Sales in its endeavors to provide the students with higher levels of education and spiritual growth.

In an effort to achieve these goals, the Parents’ Club aims to:

  • Join together as a team in order to induce fundraising to help Mount de Sales financially.
  • Provide an atmosphere of kindness and concern and a sense of belonging.
  • Provide functions that bring the school community together to share time - socially and spiritually.

Some of the fundraisers and activities for the 2017- 2018 school year:

  • Fall and Spring Clean-up
  • Spaghetti Dinner and Christmas Bazaar
  • After Prom Party
  • Father/Daughter Cotillion
  • Senior Mother/Daughter Tea
  • Golf Tournament and Raffle
  • Communion Breakfast
  • Baccalaureate Reception

Dads with Grads (DWG)

Dads with Grads, or DWG, will provide the opportunity for fathers of alumnae to reconnect or stay connected with the Mount de Sales Community. 

The goals of  Dads with Grads are as follows:

  • DWG will give men the opportunity to support MDSA beyond graduation to help ensure future families have the same faith based education opportunity for their daughters.
  • DWG will complement existing organizations at MDSA, but at the same time create something new: men offering up time and talent to make a difference at MDSA.
  • DWG will meet primarily as a social group but also give men volunteer opportunities to assist the school through current initiatives (campus clean-up, spaghetti dinner, etc.) and unique, new opportunities that may arise around the growing campus.
