The primary purpose of Sandburg Elementary School’s Dad’s Club is to provide an easy and fun way for parents to become more involved in their children’s life at school. Although we focus primarily upon including dads, mothers are welcome also. If you have a child at Sandburg, please feel free to attend one of the regular Dad’s Club meetings, or come to one of our special events. We’d be happy to have you join the Dad’s Club, but it’s OK to just come and have some fun with your child at any of our functions.
The Dad’s Club puts on several special events throughout the school year. For example, one morning before school we have Donuts with Dads: a chance to enjoy some delicious donuts and meet some of your children’s friends and other Sandburg Dads. We also sponsor an Astronomy Night where a local astronomy club brings their telescopes for us all to view the stars and planets. Similar events are spread throughout the year.
In addition to our own special events the Dad’s Club also lends a hand at other school functions. We help at Sandburg’s Beautification Day, we provide volunteers to help the teachers supervise the playground during recess, and we provide our muscle whenever needed at the many events sponsored by Sandburg’s excellent PTA.
Along the way we get a chance to know our children and their friends a little better, and to enhance their experience at Sandburg. Ultimately we hope to help our kids do better academically, and help them understand the importance of leadership, good citizenship, and community service. And let's not forget – we make sure that we have a lot of fun while we’re at it.
To sign up for the Dad’s Club, provide us with your contact information on the forms provided at all of our special events, or send your name, phone number, and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
