Mothers’ Club

The Mothers’ Club welcomes the mothers and guardians of O’Dea students for the 2018-2019 school year.

All mothers or guardians are automatically members of the Club, which is organized to promote the following objectives:

  • To support and grow our sense of community in a diverse school population.
  • To bring together its members in social and intellectual exchanges
  • To create meaningful opportunities for mothers and guardians to participate in the scholastic, spiritual, athletic and other extracurricular activities of our sons.
  • To continue to contribute to O’Dea’s tradition of building excellence through service,
  • To assist the school by providing funds to assist students and families in need.

Please watch for Mothers’ Club updates and announcements in the Family Bulletin throughout the year.

Volunteer Opportunities

Below are the volunteer opportunities available for the 2018-2019 school year. If interested, please contact the Mothers’ Club at mothers-club@odea.org

Bite of O’Dea (Fall 2018 – TBD): The Bite of O’Dea is a women’s only  social event and a great place to meet other moms!  We need a chair person and a small committee to organize the invites, food, drinks, set-up and take-down for the evening.

Open House (November 7, 2018 and January 8, 2019): 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.

Deck the Halls (November 28, 2018): Every year the Mothers’ Club spends a couple hours decorating the school with Christmas Cheer.  We provide the decorations and you come with your Christmas Spirit!

Christmas Family Project (December 21, 2018): 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).

Basketball Concessions (November 2018 – February 2019): The Mothers’ Club organizes the concessions for the O’Dea Basketball home games.  We are looking for parents to help with set up, sales and tear down. All concession volunteers will need to have a food handlers permit.  If you do not have a permit you can get one HERE. The cost is $10 and is good for two years. After completed, please turn it into the Main Office or email a copy to Darcy Leary-Bignayan.

Graduation Reception (May 29, 2019): 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.

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.
