About the Mothers' Club

The mission of the St. John's College High School Mothers' Club is to support the school, administration and student body in the spiritual, academic, ethical, charitable, athletic and artistic development of young men and women and to foster the excellent standards of the school.

The first meeting of the Mothers' Club was described in the 1936 yearbook: "Feeling that the home should assume its responsibility in education, in October 1928 five mothers pioneered the plan in a first meeting. Bro. G. Philip was the moderator and Mrs. Wallace E. Mattingly, the first president, remained in that office four years. The organization took the name 'The Mothers' Club of St. John's College.' The fundamental purpose of the club is to aid in coordinating the essential elements of faculty, student body and the home; to promote proper institutional spirit; and to foster and support the fine standards, and the still higher aims, of St. John's College." The Mothers' Club has continued to play an integral role in supporting St. John's and its mission throughout the years.

The Mothers' Club usually meets the first Wednesday of each month in Cassidy Commons. Dinner is served at 6:30 pm. Meetings begin at 7:00 pm and usually end by 8:00 pm.

  • Cadet Corps Commissioning Ceremony

    On May 10, rising seniors in the Cadet Corps received their sabers at a time honored and moving ceremony. Someone important in their lives gives the sabers to the cadets and that takes place in front of their family and friends. It marks the changing of command from the outgoing seniors to the rising seniors. Following the ceremony, the students and their guests were treated to hors d'oeuvres and cake in Cassidy Commons, served by Mothers’ Club volunteers. The highlight of the evening was the popping of the balloon arch with all those new sabers. Thanks to Mary McAndrews and Patty Petruzzelli for all their hard work.

  • Mardi Gras Celebration

    The Mardi Gras celebration finally went off without a hitch this year! Many Mothers’ Club volunteers helped decorate the cafeteria on Feb. 23 and/or helped out with the celebration on Feb. 24. There was a DJ during lunch and 40 raffle prizes, including candy and gift cards. Each lunch also had a winner: the student who found the baby in their piece of King Cake received a T-shirt from the bookstore. And everyone got cupcakes, brownies and cookies for dessert, baked by our own Mothers’ Club moms! Lots of fun had by all.
     
    A big thank you to our chair Stephanie Kelly and all the moms who baked special treats and/or volunteered their time that day!
