The Mothers’ Club was founded in February 2006 and has continued to grow in membership and service to our school. Membership applications are available on Plus Portals or in the front office. You can also email us at VCHSMothersClub@gmail.com to request an application. Annual membership is $15 (no t-shirt option) or $30 (which includes a soft ladies’ short-sleeved blue Mothers’ Club membership t-shirt). A general membership meeting is held at the beginning of each school year to welcome our old and new members and share plans for the upcoming year.
The main purpose of the Mothers’ Club is to provide services as needed to the Vandebilt Catholic High School community. We also raise funds during the year to donate to the academic needs of the school. (Annual dues go towards this donation as well). This donation is generally made at the end of the year to an academic department or an area of the school that touches every child. The Mothers’ Club has also established an Endowment Fund to be designated for the academic needs of our school, and a portion of our funds are donated to this Endowment fund at the end of the year as well.
The Mothers’ Club activities are determined by school administration and planned around the school calendar. Some of the many ways the Mothers’ Club serves are through prayer support; sponsoring and/or assisting the administration with school events for our students and parents, including Senior Reception, New Parent Orientation, Grandparents’ Day, Veterans’ Day, Senior Breakfast, and Teacher Appreciation Week; and fundraising through operating the bookstore/trailer on campus called “Stop and Paws,” hosting an annual garage sale, and selling king cake slices during Mardi Gras season. We share many of the activities with other school organizations and attempt to have every member participate in some service for the school.
The “Stop and Paws” bookstore sells a wide range of school spirited merchandise such as t-shirts, pajama pants, hair ribbons, car decals, house flags, yard signs, license plates and more. The Mother’s Club also sells book covers and used required reading books through the library. The bookstore is opened on Tuesdays and Thursdays during both lunches.
