Dear St. Thomas Parents and Guardians,
The Mothers’ Club Board welcomes you to a new academic year and looks forward to all of the good things that will take place in this school community here at St. Thomas.
The Mothers’ Club is a service organization dedicated to supporting activities that enhance our sons’ high school experience while providing social and spiritual gatherings to foster families’ growth within the St. Thomas community.
No dues are charged for St. Thomas Mothers’ Club membership. All parents and guardians of St. Thomas boys are granted automatic membership. Please consider getting involved while your son is at St. Thomas. We would love your help! In fact, many of the events at St. Thomas cannot take place without volunteers. With your help, we will support over 20 events during the year, including the Welcome Tea, the annual Auction & Gala, Round Up, Style Show, Prom, and more.
We send a special welcome to the moms of the Class of 2027 and to the moms of transfer students. We hope that you will become involved in the activities supported by the Mothers’ Club and we are happy to assist you with any questions.
Please make plans to attend our monthly general meetings and get to know the St. Thomas administration and fellow STH parents. These meetings are informative and provide an opportunity to connect with other parents both new and experienced. Every meeting will include reports from the school administration and various departments, as well as an opportunity to hear updates about the many events that the Mothers’ Club sponsors. You’ll find all of the important dates on the Meetings and Event Calendar as well as the School Calendar. Mass will begin at 11:30 on General Meeting days and then our Meeting will begin at noon. Lunch will be provided. We will also offer a zoom option for those unable to attend in person
My son, Miles, will be a Senior this year and he will soon become a member of the lifelong brotherhood enjoyed only by St. Thomas Alumni. The STH Mothers’ Club has been instrumental for my knowledge of the school and a wonderful way to connect and make friends who are also passionate about their sons and this great school. The connections you make with fellow STH families will last a lifetime!
Eagle Fight Never Dies,
2023-2024 St. Thomas Mothers’ Club President

STH Mothers’ Club Standing Committees 2023-2024
UPDATE TO COME
October 13, 2023
- What is Homecoming (also called “HOCO” by the students)?
- Homecoming at St. Thomas is a traditional weekend celebrating our football team and the camaraderie intrinsic to being an STH Eagle. It will include a Varsity home game, complete with the homecoming Queen coronation at halftime. The weekend peaks on Saturday, with a school dance for all grades.
- How can I learn more about admission to the game and dance?
- Parents should always refer to our school calendar for an overview of events ahead.
- Football Games (including HOCO)
- All game tickets are sold through our website. The link is here.
- Note: Students automatically have free admission to athletic games with ID. Our sister school students also have this same privilege. (St. Agnes, Duchesne, and Incarnate Word Academy).
- Homecoming Football Game has a special option: Our students may have a date accompany them to the game at no extra charge. This is only for our Homecoming game.
- Dance tickets for Homecoming (and Jr./Sr. Prom) are sold through our online STH store on a limited basis. When they go live, students/parents will receive immediate notice and the link.
- Tickets are only sold up until the day before the dance at noon. No tickets are sold/offered at the doors.
- What safety precautions will the dance provide, and how do they impact our son?
- We utilize dance ‘lock-ins’ to keep students safely at our dance until the dance is almost over. This allows parents to have some reassurance of their child being at the dance as promised. A lock-in means that the dance doors no longer will accept new guests 30 minutes after the dance begins, and will not release guests until 30 minutes prior to the dance’s end time. (Example: A dance that begins at 8:30 and ends at 11 pm, would have a lock-in window from 9:00-10:30.) We also have several Houston Police Department officers on site, the night of the dance.
- May my son invite the guest of his choice from any school, or must his date be from a Catholic sister school?
- Students are welcome to invite a date from any school, or even from another city or town. All we ask is that she abide by our dress code, which is shared and highlighted by our Student Activities team when homecoming information is provided each year. All variations of STH dress codes are publicized in our yearly handbook, found at this page.
- May young men from other schools attend the game and Dance?
- Our games are open to all people, and we welcome visitors. Our dances are exclusive to our young men and their dates, as well as our invited sister schools. Please reach out to our Student Activities director for questions.
- Do STH students buy the traditional mums for their dates at Homecoming?
- It is common, but not required. Our school’s parent-based band guild takes great pride in creating beautiful mums and armbands to sell on a limited basis. More information can be found on the bottom of this page. For questions, please email email@example.com.
- What suggestions would be best for parents who want to help ensure the best homecoming possible for their son?
- These are some simple suggestions:
- Ask your son if he prefers to go with a date, or with his buddies from school (“stag”). Both options are common and popular.
- Consider what he’d like to wear; our homecoming dance is semi-formal, and sport coats are not required. If he brings a coat, he’ll be asked to check it in, so the best idea may be to wear dress pants, a tie and a dress-shirt, plus dress shoes and socks.
- Ask him if he’d like to buy his date, if applicable, a corsage or flower wristband. These are not required, but some students still practice this tradition.
- In terms of sustenance, our dance will have light snacks and refreshments, but we recommend that students eat beforehand to keep up their energy. Because our dance uses a ‘lock-in’ and will shut the doors 30 minutes after the start time, we urge you to ensure that dinner plans are completed in time for him and his friends/date to make it to the dance timely.
- Tickets are only available online before the dance, as mentioned in question 2.
- Would it make sense to have some form of group transportation, like a party bus or limo to transport my son and his pals?
- Unfortunately, this is not permitted for reasons that pertain to safety. We encourage students to drive with their friends and park at our garage, or be dropped off by their parents.
- Does my son need to bring anything, and does his date need to bring anything?
- The best accessory is your son’s school ID, which will make the entry process into the dance much faster. His date should focus on bringing as little as possible. Handbags and coats are required to be checked at our Coat Check. The Coat Check is overseen by parent volunteers. If an item is checked, it can be accessed as necessary throughout the night, but remains checked until its owner departs from the dance.
- What happens if my son or his date need to go home during the lock-in?
- Students would need to talk to any adult at the dance, and our Dean’s office representative would ensure safety measures are followed for true emergencies. If not an actual emergency, our lock-in is enforced fully.
If you’d like to support our students by serving as a chaperone or volunteer, please visit this page, which will offer volunteer opportunities and much more.
All About Mums & Armbands
Every year, the Music Guild create beautiful homecoming mums and armbands for Eagles and their dates. These creations are tangible memories that symbolize school spirit and friendship. Traditionally, mums and armbands are worn to the Homecoming football game. If you are interested in purchasing these for homecoming, here are some tips:
- Check our Eagle Store listings often to purchase early, before they sell out.
- If you need to plan for the cost or specific availability dates, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
- Click here if you’d like to see sample pricing and photos.
- Be sure to note the pick-up instructions when you purchase, so that nothing is left to chance when homecoming night arrives.

Round Up 101
Q: What is St. Thomas High School Round Up?
A: Round Up is one of the “Big 3” fundraising events held annually by the St. Thomas community. One of the oldest traditions at St. Thomas, Round Up is a “Community-wide” event run by current parents and Alumni. Round Up began in 1927 as the “St. Thomas Bazaar” and became an annual tradition in 1945. Over the years, the season and name may have changed, but not the desire to bring together friends and the entire St. Thomas community to celebrate what makes us special. As a fundraiser, all proceeds go to the STH Scholarship Fund which in turn goes directly to the boys as STH provides financial assistance to approximately one third of our students!
Held every year on the first Sunday of March, this year’s Round Up is scheduled, for Sunday March 3, 2024 (12pm-6pm). Round Up will look different this year, like everything else this past year, but our Round Up Chairs are working to finalize all details.
Q: What is a “Quota” and why is that all my son is talking about now?
A: The Raffle component of Round Up is how the largest portion of the scholarship money is raised, with each student responsible for selling at least a “quota” (15 books) of raffle tickets. Collectively, the students are challenged to reach a particular goal of total ticket sales to earn incentives such as t-shirts, school outings, and school holidays!
Q: How much do raffle tickets cost and what can be won?
A: Raffle tickets sell for $5 each, or a book of tickets (4 tickets per book) sells for $20. Students are encouraged to sell tickets however they can – to family, friends, and neighbors, at your church, etc. – and the school provides opportunities for the students to sell tickets by volunteering for phone-a-thons to call alumni or by providing contact lists for alumni that live in your zip code.
Q: How can I help make the Round Up a Success?
A: What remains is the same this year for Round Up is that we need YOUR help. Everyone has a role to play in making Round Up a success. There are all kinds of ways to help; little, big, you choose! Learn all about the ways you can help at the first Round Up meeting –
Round Up Meetings
