#5. YOUR KID(S) WILL LOVE IT!
Nothing encourages a child to participate in the school community like watching dad lead the way. Modeling a spirit of volunteerism will also set your child on a lifelong path of positive engagement and participation.
#4. IT’S GRATIFYING TO PARTICIPATE IN A DECADES-LONG TRADITION OF ACTIVE SUPPORT OF OUR CHILDREN’S EDUCATION!
The Flintridge Prep Fathers Club is now in its sixth decade of supporting this most important formative element of our children’s lives, both financially and socially, through hosting a number of major events for the greater Flintridge Prep school community each year. And being part of the team that does good feels good.
#3. “PREP FOR LIFE” MEANS FATHERS, TOO!
As we all know, Headmaster Peter Bachmann always stresses the concept of “Prep for Life,” but he’s not just referring to the students. Turns out he’s talking about the entire Prep community, and for many dads membership in the Fathers Club has resulted in strong friendships that last far beyond their students’ graduation.
#2. WE MAY BE HAVING MORE FUN THAN OUR KIDS!
Okay, we’d appreciate your not spreading this around, especially to the moms, but teaming up to accomplish things on behalf of the school can be an awful lot of fun. Need proof? Just look at the smiles on the dads’ faces at any Fathers Club event.
And the Number One Reason to be an active member of the Flintridge Prep Fathers Club:
#1. WE’RE A COOL BUNCH O’ GUYS!
No, really. Where else would you meet so many friendly guys of so many different interests from all walks of life? So come to a Fathers Club meeting. Guaranteed you’ll learn something. Refreshments are always served, too. Just sayin’…
