List of Mothers Club Events

The Brother Rice High School Mothers’ Club wishes to extend to all mothers/guardians a warm Crusader welcome!  We are a social and volunteer service group who assists the Brother Rice administration and community. Every mother or guardian of a Brother Rice student is automatically a member of the Mothers’ Club. We have no fee “to join.” We simply ask for your time, talents, and friendship.

The Mothers’ Club meets the first Wednesday of each month during the school year in the school library. Additionally, our group has no shortage of volunteer opportunities that enhance the high school experience for each of our sons, from helping with Teacher Appreciation Breakfast to co-chairing an event, such as the “Rice Pride” Awards Night.

Come and make new friends and learn what the Mothers’ Club is all about. Please email us if you have any questions. To learn about our volunteer opportunities, please click on the sign-up button below.

These are the events that the Mothers’ Club hosts in the school year.  They are listed in the order that they occur. Every Mothers’ Club event has one or two mothers who are chairing (in charge) the event.  Volunteers are needed to assist.
