Freshman Representatives Needed
Welcome to the Holy Ghost Prep family! We know that your time spent here over the next four years will be as memorable as your son's and we invite you to join us as part of the Mothers' Guild.
Each year we look to four incoming freshman moms or guardians to join the Mothers' Guild board as freshman representatives. The freshman representative position involves attendance at our monthly Guild and board meetings and assistance at our events throughout the year. In addition, the freshman representatives plan and host the Mothers' Guild Christmas dinner at our December meeting, with the assistance of the vice-presidents and volunteers from the freshman class. The representatives continue with their son's class all four years, if desired. It is a rewarding experience and one that brings with it good friends and wonderful memories.
We encourage you to consider volunteering your time. If interested in the freshman representative position, other volunteer positions or would like to provide your email address, please click here. We would like to fill the freshman representative positions by August 10, 2018. If you have any questions, please email Jodi Zelinsky at email@example.com. Have a great summer!
2018 Mothers' Guild Craft Show
Committee Volunteers Needed
The Holy Ghost Prep Mothers' Guild runs the most successful craft show in the area. Planning has begun for the 2018 craft show, which will take place on November 10th & 11th.
Committee Volunteers: At this time, the Mothers’ Guild is recruiting for a "shadow" for our overall tri-chair and our chair of the basket committee, as well as a few additional committee members. The shadow volunteers will learn from current chairs with the goal of chairing their respective committees in 2019.
For a description of the committee positions, please click here. For more information, please contact Kate Braunstein at firstname.lastname@example.org. The craft show committee is a wonderful way to make new friends and to be a part of the Holy Ghost Prep family as we continue this great tradition year after year!
Thank You For Your Service - Ellen Rusnak
On behalf of the 2017/2018 Mothers’ Guild Board and the entire Mothers’ Guild, we would like to extend a warm and appreciative THANK YOU to Ellen Rusnak, our 2017/2018 Mothers’ Guild President for a wonderful and very successful year for the Mothers’ Guild.
Ellen has been an exemplary leader, who truly respected our time-honored traditions, while introducing a few new ones that were added to our “premier” list of traditions, not to mention guiding us through our most financially successful year yet.
Under Ellen’s guidance, and Judy Krohn’s hard work, we have finally launched an idea that has been tossed around for a few years, the Suit, Tie and Blazer Swap. Also, Ellen recognized that sometimes traditions can become antiquated and saw a need for a new way to honor our faculty and staff, and thus, the Faculty and Staff Appreciation Breakfast was launched this year. Finally, our annual donations amounted to a record total of $47,000, which were directed towards the audio system in the Frederico Theater in the Holt Center. These are amazing results that will leave a positive impact on future generations of students, faculty and staff to come through Holy Ghost.
Ellen, you have led the Mothers’ Guild with grace, respect, efficiency, hard work, dedication and you are an excellent example for future presidents to follow, and we sincerely thank you. You will be truly missed, but we all look forward to coming back to Alumni Mom events and reminiscing about the fabulous 2017/2018 year!!
Thank you, Ellen!!
