Parent Club


Mission Statement:

The Bishop Fenwick Parent’s Club supports activities within a faith-filled community that promote and enhance your child’s Catholic high school experience.  This is done through a cooperative working relationship between Bishop Fenwick’s parents and the school’s administration and faculty.

Goal:  “Something for Everyone”.  To provide a variety of projects and a welcoming environment that encourages involvement from all interested parents on multiple levels.  Simply stated, if you want to be involved in volunteering, in any capacity, the Parent Club has a role for you.  It is a great opportunity to get to know other parents, administration and faculty by working together for the betterment of the Bishop Fenwick community.

Management/Leadership:

A Steering Committee comprised of officers and key committee chairs works in tandem with school administration to support multiple departments and functions throughout the year.  Steering committee members are asked to commit for the duration of their child’s tenure at Fenwick.  This is to provide continuity in the club’s mission and goals.  The current structure includes a four person presidency, secretary, treasurer and various committee/activity chairs.  If an event/activity is without a parent volunteer, a steering committee member will serve as a chair.  All events are assigned a faculty or staff liaison.

Co-Presidents:

Treasurer:  Pauline Bilofsky,  

Secretary Sabrina Snyder,   

Meetings:

The steering committee meets the second Monday of the month and an all school Parent Club meeting once a quarter. Volunteer sign-ups are available at each meeting. General session meetings are held in the media center-
