Wesleyan Parents Club

There are many opportunities for you to be involved! We appreciate our parent volunteers and would encourage all families to participate in our events. Visit our web pages listed below to find an opportunity to share your talents and get involved today!

All parents of Wesleyan students are automatically members! We are a Georgia non-profit corporation and our primary goal is fostering connections between our parents, faculty, staff and students. Our annual events encourage involvement, provide focused fellowship, help build our community and embrace our new Wesleyan families.

  • American Red Cross Blood Drive

    Wesleyan Blood Drive – January 31, 2020

    Each school year, the Wesleyan Parents Club sponsors a blood drive with assistance from the American Red Cross. The American Red Cross provides nurses and supplies for the day. Faculty, staff, parents, and students over 16 years of age are encouraged to participate if they meet the American Red Cross donation requirements.

    The Parents Club provides volunteer support by organizing the registration for the drive, checking in the donors, providing snacks and beverages for donors, and ensuring that the day runs smoothly. The Parents Club volunteers also provide support, when needed, to the American Red Cross staff.

  • Christmas Ornaments

    The Wesleyan Parents Club presents the 22nd annual 2019 Wesleyan Christmas ornament, designed by sophomore Joy Ani.

    Joy’s design beautifully displays 2 Corinthians 9:15 – "Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift".

    These elegant ornaments are unique collectors’ items and capture the true essence of the Christmas season. They make a wonderful gift, as well as a treasured keepsake for your own collection. Each ornament is a beveled optic crystal that is highly polished, pure and colorless, with excellent clarity and sparkle. Your ornament will be housed in a designer gift box for safe handling and storage.

    The 2019 Wesleyan Christmas ornaments are in limited supply so we urge you to order today to reserve your ornament. Delivery will be no later than mid-November. In addition to the current year, a limited number of ornaments are available for prior years back to 1998.

    What a wonderful way to commemorate each year that a child attends Wesleyan! The ornaments also make terrific gifts for family, friends, and teachers. Each ornament comes packaged in a box for safe handling and holiday storage.

  • Grandparents and Special Friends Day

    Grandparents and Special Friends Day – April 9, 2020

  • Moms in Prayer

    Moms in Prayer – Mondays at 8:10 a.m.

    The Wesleyan chapter of Moms in Prayer International (formerly Moms In Touch) is a group of mothers actively praying for our children and our school.

    We meet every Monday at 8:10 a.m. in Shropshire Commons Room in Wesley Hall for about one hour to pray. We welcome any Wesleyan mom, even if you can only attend sporadically.

    "Moms in Prayer has really shown me the hearts of the Wesleyan mothers and how much they love their children and this school. We’ve seen God answer prayer after prayer, and it is so encouraging! It is the BEST way I can start my week."

    –Wesleyan Mom
