We love dads here at PTO Today, especially involved school dads. And this week I have a few simple tips and links and programs to help you connect with more dads at your school.
First, please do note that dads’ involvement is different. The most successful schools in terms of involving fathers have custom programs just for them. It might not be fair that PTOs and PTAs are mostly associated with moms, but it's reality. Don't fight it -- get dads involved with whatever name works.
And I have a sneak preview of an article about dads from our upcoming January magazine. Called “A Place for Dads,” it’s a piece that highlights three programs that help fathers be part of their kids’ education. Each is worth a look.
We'd love to hear about dads at your school. Jump into our Facebook conversation about dads’ involvement.
