O'Dea High School

Mothers’ Club

The O’Dea Mothers’ Club objective is to bring together its members in social and intellectual exchanges, to keep in close touch with high school life and, in all possible ways, to aid the school by providing funds and promoting the welfare of our students.

The Mothers’ Club is proud to contribute to the O’Dea High School tradition of building excellence through service, community, and fund raising for scholarship funds to aid the school in assisting our families in need.

There are many opportunities for participating, joining in educational meetings and interacting with other O’Dea moms, grandmothers, aunts and even sisters of students.

Watch postings on the web page calendar and join in the O’Dea experience; we don’t want to miss you!

Volunteer Opportunities

Below are the volunteer opportunities available for the 2016-2017 school year. If interested, please contact the Mothers’ Club at mothers-club@odea.org

Bite of O’Dea: We need a strong committee to help organize things such as entertainment, food and drink, games, set up/tear down and marketing to name a few.  This is a social event and a great place to meet other moms!

Open House (11/3/16 and 1/5/17): Freshman and Sophomore families supply cookies or brownies for this event.  We need energetic O’Dea mom’s to help us set up, tear down, socialize and answer questions to prospective O’Dea families.

Graduation Reception: The Mothers’ Club is proud to host a reception immediately following the Graduation ceremony.  We need moms to help with set up, tear down, plating cookies, preparing the water stations, replenishing the cookies, and cutting and serving the cake.

Deck the Halls: Every year the Mothers’ Club spends a couple hours on the first Saturday morning in December decorating the school with Christmas Cheer.  We provide the decorations and you come with your Christmas Spirit!

Christmas Family Project: O’Dea adopts a handful of families every year to help make their Christmas bright.  We need lots of parents to help the boys wrap the gifts as well as drive the gifts to the families’ homes.  It is fun to reward the boys by bringing treats that they get to enjoy after they have completed the wrapping.  Donations for this project are also happily accepted (wrapping paper, gift boxes, scissors, tape, tags).

Christmas Wreath Sales: We need moms to help out with marketing and data entry. Sales begin in late September.

Basketball Concessions: The Mothers’ Club organizes the concessions for the O’Dea Basketball home games.  We are looking for folks to help with set up, sales and tear down.

SCRIP: We are looking to build a sustainable SCRIP program and need help from motivated moms, preferable those with experience!  Click here for the SCRIP order form.
