Parent Associations

"Helping more parents become more involved more of the time"

An Invitation for Freshmen Parents to Apply for the Parents' Association Boards!

The Mothers' and Dads' Clubs of Ursuline Academy provide ways for parents of Ursuline students to get involved with the school, other parents, and their daughters in fellowship, service and programming. They accomplish this by facilitating volunteer efforts of parents, sponsoring events, and raising funds for tuition assurance, technology, facility and faculty development. All programs and events are organized by members of their executive boards.

Each January we accept nominations from parents of the current freshmen class. January 2015 is the only opportunity for the Class of 2018 parents to apply for a position on one of the Parent Associations' boards. Any mom or dad from the Class of 2018 is eligible for nomination to the Boards of the Mothers' and Dads' Clubs, respectively. Board members are expected to make a three year commitment, including attending about six meetings per year, as well as leading and planning events. The two boards are affiliated and their work involves joint meetings and collaborative committee tasks, as well.

The Mothers' Club is comprised of up to eight mothers from each class. Sophomore mothers assist in the planning and committee work of several events, and make a commitment to plan and execute events as a junior mother. Senior mothers serve as officers and handle strategic planning issues for the organization.

The Dads' Club consists of six dads from each class. These members serve on various committees and help organize events with the largest being the Annual Father/Daughter Dance.

If you are a parent of a freshman daughter in the Class of 2018, you may apply to one of the boards by submitting the nomination form to Lori Haines, in the Development Office, by Saturday, December 14, 2014. You will be notified by email when your nomination is received. All nominees will be notified by email when your nomination is received. All nominees will be notified of the decision by Monday, January 13, 2015.

We encourage you to carefully consider serving on one of the Boards. If you would like to learn more about the Mothers' or Dads' Clubs, please contact one of us.
