Parents' Club

The Mount de Sales Parents’ Club organizes multiple events during the year. We can only do this with the help of parent volunteers. Please consider helping with one or more of these activities. Following is a description of the volunteer needs for each event.

We appreciate any amount of time you can give.

Volunteer names are forwarded to the listed committee chairpersons who will contact you with more details and coordinate volunteer duties closer to the event date. Even just a few hours are appreciated. In many cases, your daughters can earn service hours when they volunteer with you. The chairperson for the respective event or the Parents’ Club President (Valerie Queensberry at 410-925-6723 vaqski@verizon.net) or Vice-President (Grace Carter at 814-602-1799 grace.cartermdsa@gmail.com) can be contacted if you have additional questions. Volunteer Coordinator Kim Dignan (kdignan@mountdesales.org) would also love to answer any of your questions!
