ST. EDWARD PARENTS CLUB
Welcome to St. Edward Parents Club! We are a group of dedicated moms who host special activities for mothers, fathers, and guardians of all Edsmen. Through fundraising and volunteering, we also support many school-sponsored events that benefit the young men of our school. We hope you will join us!
Below, please find a list of our typical events, which are temporarily on hold. We will provide dates as soon as we are able.
