Senior Treat Day and Farewell – Tuesday, May 17, 9-10 a.m., Outdoor Pavilion
Senior moms and dads, join us for our final Senior Treat Day during the Brophy morning break. Setup begins at 9 a.m and the boys arrive at 9:30 a.m. Plan to wear a t-shirt that depicts where your son is headed to next! We look forward to seeing you there to help send off our boys with a final sweet treat and a whole lot of love.  

Project Grad – Saturday, May 21, 8-11 p.m., Brophy and Xavier Seniors
This free night of fun will occur at Brophy and will include lots of entertainment, food trucks, prizes, ax throwing and even a hypnotist. It will be an amazing opportunity for the Brophy and Xavier graduating classes to be together one last time after graduation. 

Senior parents, please refer to the email about the evening event and secret senior memory board project (we need your help!)  

We still need help from parents of all classes to chaperone! If you'd like more information about volunteering at Project Grad, please contact Phoutie Bansal (phoutieb@yahoo.com), Maronel Rivera (maronelr@gmail.com) or Alicia Markham (alicia@dealsinaz.com). 

Brophy Corral – Lunchtime Help is Needed from Noon-1:30 p.m.
We have a wonderful opportunity for our moms and dads to help in the Corral (lunch cafeteria) during summer school starting on June 6. Come see the energy on campus and lend a hand to our Brophy boys! Please sign up here.

New Family Welcome Calls – We Need You!
Help pay it forward by welcoming the new class of 2026 Brophy families! Every year, members of the Brophy Mothers’ Guild call incoming families to welcome them and answer any questions that they might have. This year, the New Parent Welcome Committee is chaired by Ann Blue and Anni Foster. They are looking for moms to volunteer to call 10-15 new parents the week before school begins in August. If you are interested, please sign up here and we will get you more information towards the end of July. Let's make sure our new families feel welcomed into our amazing Brophy community!

2023 Junior/Senior Mother-Son Event – Committee Chairs Needed!
We had more than 200 attendees at this fun event last month! After its previous two-year hiatus, we need to make sure this event is scheduled for next spring! Thanks to the fantastic chairs, they have a binder full of notes and details to make the planning go smoothly. If you would like to consider helping out, email Dona Whitney at 
vicepresident-1@brophymothersguild.org.

A heartfelt thank you goes to …
  • The Dads’ Club! It has been such a pleasure working with you this year. Your ideas were brilliant and your generosity was overwhelming. Thank you, thank you!
  • The countless volunteers who donated more than a combined 900 hours of their time this year, which equates to more than $25,000! Brophy would not be the same without you!
  • Each and every committee chair for their ideas, sweat and ingenious plans that made our faculty and staff feel loved and our deserving moms feel included and excited to be a part of this wonderful community. We know your guidance will help the incoming chairs plan an equally amazing 2022-23 school year.
