Father/Daughter Event

Thank you Fathers and Father Figures who came out to support their young child’s education.  48 Fathers and Father Figures attended this event with their daughters.  You are so important in children’s lives.

All families received a copy of Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. We had several activities including: Book Signing & Reading Area, Photo Booth, Bunny Toss Game, Night Sky Craft, Sorting Folder Game followed by refreshments and dancing.


We asked fathers to tell us something they learned, Something they enjoyed, and general comments:

Something We Learned:

“How to spend more time with my daughter” – Miguel Martinez – Southwest HS

“Matching the Different Moons and how to toss the bunny!” – Darius Fells – Nathaniel Hill South HS

Something We Enjoyed:

“Reading with my granddaughter is a great thing!” – Michael Phillips – Southwest HS

“Games and the time together” – Christopher Weston – King EHS

Comments:

“Great time with my young lady. Also love seeing other fathers so involved!” – Marcus Adams – Sherwood HS

“We are having so much fun. Thank you all so much!” – Samuel Hall – Metro HS


“Father engagement is a vital and integrated aspect of parent, family, and community engagement work. Head Start and Early Start staff engage fathers as advocates, lifelong educators, and first teachers of their children. Male family members and father figures serve key roles in the healthy development of their children and families, and have much to add to their Head Start communities. Explore these resources to learn ways to enhance your program’s father engagement efforts.”
