Mothers' Club

Welcome

Welcome to the La Salle Mothers’ Club Webpage

Welcome to the La Salle Mothers’ Club Webpage

Our role is to support the La Salle community in the selfless spirit of Saint John Baptist de La Salle through community-building and fundraising events to promote the La Salle mission.

As a mother or legal guardian of a La Salle student, you are a member of the Mothers’ Club, and we warmly invite you to get involved by attending or volunteering at our events. It is a great way to meet and socialize with other moms in our school community. The high school experience passes quickly, and I hope you will join us in making lasting memories.

You are invited to attend our monthly meetings which are listed on the school calendar. You can stay connected with the Mothers’ Club by reading The Belcroft each month, by visiting this area of La Salle’s Website, by joining our La Salle Mothers' Club Facebook Group, or by reading our periodic emails for details about our events and volunteer opportunities. Feel free to contact me with any questions via email at maryjean.carabello@hud.gov.

Please check out our Events and Registrations tab to view and register for our upcoming events. I look forward to working with you in support of La Salle and our sons.

Tickets for the 2019 New York Trip to see the fabulous Broadway production of "Beautiful" are on sale now.

For five years, BEAUTIFUL, the Tony and Grammy Award-winning Carole King musical, has thrilled Broadway with the inspiring true story of one woman’s remarkable journey from teenage songwriter to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

From the string of pop classics she wrote for the biggest acts in music to her own life-changing, chart-busting success with Tapestry, BEAUTIFUL takes you back to where it all began – and takes you on the ride of a lifetime.

Featuring over two dozen pop classics, including “You’ve Got a Friend”, “One Fine Day”, “Up on the Roof”, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling”, “Will You Love Me Tomorrow”, and “Natural Woman”, this crowd-pleasing international phenomenon is filled with the songs you remember – and a story you’ll never forget.

Tickets are $200 per person. Quantities are limited and will go fast! Everyone will be assigned to buses. We will do our best to accommodate your party (seating on the bus and in the theater).
