ESD DADS' PARTNERSHIP

WHO WE ARE

We are ESD dads...just like you. The Partnership Board consists of 24 board members and more than 350 ESD volunteer dads (partners) that, like you, are committed to being involved in all areas of ESD by volunteering or joining in on activities with your children. We organize and arrange activities all year long on a weekly, monthly, and annual basis at all grades levels to allow dads a way to get plugged in!

Dads' Partnership Breakfast: Once a year all dads, all grades (B-12) are invited to a breakfast at the Upper School for a well-run program with presentations from school officials, the Dads’ Partnership and a tremendous guest speaker. An old tradition that all dads attend or volunteer to help.

Salvation Army 8th -12th graders: About six times each year dads and students volunteer side by side at the Salvation Army on Harry Hines for an evening of community service, feeding the homeless and helping to change peoples’ lives. Come once or come to all. Show your child the way we give back to others at ESD and to the community. This has become very popular and there are usually 20 to 30 dads and students there each time. Students also receive three community service hours.

Cornhole Tournament for 5th and 6th Graders: This one is just for fun! Dads and children will enjoy an exciting night playing cornhole in our first tournament. It is a requirement that dad’s inner child must show up for entertainment value! Just hang out and have fun together.

Bible Study: Please join us in an amazing opportunity to bond with you son or daughter through one of our ESD Dads and Daughters or ESD Dads and Sons bible studies starting this fall for grades 2-12. The kids will read, discuss, and learn memory verses, and also create prayer lists for their friends, family, and pets. Previous groups have been incredibly successful and some continue all the way through senior year! What a blessing!

Dads Serve Breakfast: Every day different dads come with their children early to school and help check out their children’s friends that come to breakfast that day. We have dads volunteering every day! This is one of our most popular events with the flexibility of dads schedule and a great way to get to know your child’s friends better.

    Internships for ESD seniors with “ESDWORX”: This is a new and very important program sponsored by the Partnership. We are committed to providing summer internships for our rising seniors within the ESD community. If you or your company is interested in providing a summer internship to an ESD rising senior please let us know and we will provide you with the additional information. Helping ESD students find their passion in the workplace is a priority!
