  • Mentoring New Families in 2015-2016 SY
    Remember when you were new to Gonzaga?  Perhaps with your first child in high school?  The simplest things can feel overwhelming!  

    Please consider guiding a few new moms through the process by offering to answer questions and provide information.  Often these questions are as simple as "What kind of shoes do the boys wear?" 

    All it takes to provide that support is one phone call during the summer, and another during the fall, to reach out and connect with a new mom.  You can answer any immediate questions, share some of our Gonzaga friendliness, and leave your contact information for future questions.  

    Its so easy, yet makes such a big difference.

    To volunteer to mentor 4 or 5 families, please CLICK HERE.

  • Senior Moms - Important Info
    Senior Meeting Night
    There will be a Senior Parents Meeting on Thursday, March 12th at 7:00 PM in the cafeteria. The purpose of this evening is to address the transitional issues that will arise over the next several months as your son prepares to depart for college. This meeting is especially helpful for parents who are going through this process for the first time (of course, all parents are welcome). The evening is designed to help foster the process of separation and letting go. Hopefully it will also help reduce anxiety and increase communication between you and your son.

There are three choices of shirts: long sleeved dry fit, long sleeved cotton- both purple. There is also a short sleeve white cotton T shirt.
