A WELCOME MESSAGE FROM OUR FATHERS' CLUB PRESIDENT
Dear Gwynedd Dads and Guardians,
My name is Vince Valenzuela (Gabrielle ’23) and I am pleased to be serving as the Fathers' Club President for the 2022-23 academic year. I offer a warm welcome to the new fathers entering Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School. You and your daughters join a community rich in Mercy Spirit that is committed to empowering our girls to achieve all they can aspire to be.
The primary goal of the Fathers’ Club is to continue the mission of the school and to help our daughters grow in the Mercy Spirit. We are focused on how we, as fathers and guardians, can enhance our daughters’ Gwynedd experience while spending quality time with them.
In addition to fun father-daughter outings like cooking classes, a night out at Phillies game, and more, we hope to offer service opportunities with your daughters. Also, each year the Fathers’ Club volunteers to direct parking for the School's Open House and Graduation. Plus, we support the School’s biggest fundraisers; the Golf Classic in the fall semester and McAuley’s Pub Night in the spring semester.
This is certainly a great time to be at Gwynedd! The freshmen class of 115 comes from 33 different schools. Additionally, three new Monarchs joined our school community from neighboring high schools. The Class of 2023 will graduate 122 young women this spring.
Please feel free to contact me with questions or suggestions on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vincent H. Valenzuela
