ABOUT THE FATHERS' CLUB
The Fenwick Fathers’ Club is a volunteer organization founded on October 17, 1932. On that day, six fathers of current Fenwick students each donated $25 to be used as an emergency fund for families experiencing hardships during the Great Depression. Membership in the Fathers’ Club is open to all adults who assume the parent role in the life of a Fenwick student.
Throughout the school year, the Fathers’ Club sponsors a Freshman Family Picnic in August, a Fall Fest with the Mothers’ Club, a Cigar Christmas Party, Trends in College Admissions, a Men's Religious Retreat around Lent and a Welcome Steak Fry for incoming fathers in May. Other meetings are held regularly for social networking and dinner once a month.
The mission of the Fathers’ Club is to advance the ministry of Fenwick High School, to provide a social network, to enrich our faith lives, to facilitate communication and to serve the needs of our families.
The vision of the Fathers’ Club includes a welcoming atmosphere and congenial social group for parents, an opportunity for members to grow in their faith lives, compassionate support for families struggling with the loss of a parent through the Tuition Continuation Fund, clear and open lines of communication between the school and families, an outward manifestation of our appreciation for the work of the faculty and financial participation in the school’s Annual Giving program.
