Parents' Club

The Mount de Sales Parents’ Club organizes several beautiful events throughout the year. We strive to continue our many long-lasting, cherished traditions but can only do so with the support of our dedicated volunteers. Please consider lending a hand with one or more of our activities. Even just a few hours can make a huge difference and are greatly appreciated! In many cases, your daughters can also earn service hours when they volunteer with you. For more details, please read the descriptions below of the volunteer needs for each event. Once you decide which event(s) appeals to you, sign up!
Volunteer names will be forwarded to the listed committee chairperson(s) who will contact you as the event approaches.

Any questions, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Kim Dignan at kdignan@mountdesales.org.
