Much like last year, we, the dads will not be allowed in the school building as LRSD continues to navigate through the pandemic. We feel that as dads we have already taken a year off which hurts two things. One, our relationships with each other. We, the dads, of Fulbright need to be connected and need to know who each other are. Our relationships with each other build more community and establish more consistency in families staying in public schools. Our relationships build into the depths of our children and their relationships with their peers. We are planning a social night for dads in the hopes of building our community.
Second, taking another year off would hurt what we could do to support this school. From staff to students to the PTA there is so much that needs our support. We want the teachers of Fulbright to know that we are here for them. We are currently thinking of ways that we can support of the school from school grounds, to staff, and teacher support.
I believe to achieve a larger sense of community among the dads we need to establish a name that brands us. Therefore, instead of being Watchdog Dads, we are the Fulbright Dads Club.
We hope that you will join us in this new season and new effort. We are currently looking to fill out an executive committee that would help generate ideas and lead efforts. Please, email John Kimberlin at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our RIF (Reading Is Fundamental) dates are scheduled for October 20th, January 19th, and March 30th in the Fulbright Library. We need volunteers to help display books and stamp each students new book. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Ryan Tiedeman.
