The Monsignor Clarke School PTO Mission

The mission of the Monsignor Clarke School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is to build a sense of community among our families, teachers and staff. Through volunteering and developing opportunities for funding, we strive to address school needs and support enrichment activities in order to provide the best educational experience for our children.

2022 – 2023 PTO Board Members

Julie Johnson

President

This is my second year as an MCS parent and I am excited to take on the role of PTO President!  I moved to southern RI (from NH) just over 20 years ago to attend URI and never left. I live in Wakefield with my husband, Shawn.  We enjoy doing science experiments at home, baking fun desserts and going on adventures.

Lisa Stanelun

Fundraising Chair

I am a second year parent at MCS with two young students. As a graduate of URI, I have always loved South County and its sense of community, which is something that drew me to MCS.  I live in Warwick with my husband, 2 kids and dog.  We own No Common Cents Coins, Bullion and Jewelry right in Narragansett. In our free time we love to be outdoors, doing craft projects and movie nights. I  have spent many years volunteering with nonprofits in Rhode Island and look forward to helping raise funds for the school.

Kent Dresser

Communications Ambassador

Hello, my name is Kent Dresser. My wife Meaghan and I are the parents of Charles Teaken “Teak” (4th) and Finnian “Finn” (K). This is my third year as a part of the MCS community and my first year on the PTO board. My career as a maritime expert started as a professional rescue and salvage boat Captain on Narragansett Bay and Block Island Sound when I was in college. After college, I went to ocean-going tugboats based out of New York City until I started my maritime training business in 2003. My background is why you will hear many of my friends around campus refer to me by my nickname, “Capt. Kent.” I have a Marine Affairs degree from the University of Rhode Island and am currently enrolled in an M.A. Philosophy program at Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, CT. We are communicants of Christ the King in Kingston. I’m looking forward to a fun and enriching year for the kids while collaborating with many of MCS’s great families and staff.

Monica Mabe

Ad-Hoc / Book Fair Coordinator

I am a 3rd year parent at MCS with a daughter in first grade.  She loves MCS and we are loving our experience here.  I am originally from Spanish Fork, UT but moved to RI when I was 25 to attend graduate school at URI.  I met my husband here, who was raised in North Kingstown, and stayed (after a brief period living in TX).  I am a school psychologist in East Providence and my husband is a Mercedes-Benz technician for Inskip in Warwick.  We live in Saunderstown and love living in southern RI.  I fell in love with RI and New England shortly after moving here and never want to live anywhere else.

Fundraising Update

Over the years, PTO fundraising has had a direct impact on improving the MCS environment. Funds have helped install the science lab, purchase ChromeBooks for student use, supply bibles to our middle school children and improve security throughout the school.

This year, there is no shortage of wishes and needs – additional security measures, air conditioning for the gym, school beautification and more!

We will keep the community apprised of what our fundraising efforts help support and please feel free to share additional ideas with the PTO for consideration!
