The Fathers' Club is a supportive, involved group of dads who lend a hand to the wonderful school that our daughters attend. We encourage the participation of all fathers whenever possible, be it for a monthly meeting or an organized event. There is no membership fee. Through our sponsored events, we have fun, we get involved, and we make a difference.
- Provide a venue through which fathers of Ursuline students can work together in support of their daughters and on behalf of the school,
- Provide a forum for fathers to engage in Ursuline and all that it offers,
- Function as an information exchange, and
- Organize events and provide some measure of fundraising.
- Our goal is to structure activities that will help parents of Ursuline students support their daughters as members of the school community.
- Seek initiatives that align the Fathers' Club more closely with the Ursuline mission statement, "Educate, Inspire, Empower".
- Source and engage in activities that specifically locate or define service projects that fathers and daughters can participate in together to support the school.
- Just as the school mission statement underscores service to others, we as parents endeavor to assist the school in the development of a culture of philanthropy in our daughters, e.g. contributing to the endowment.
- Maximize participation and enable dads to become more engaged.
- More new dads attending meetings and events,
- Parents have been invited to submit themes to be considered for future meetings or projects, and
- Attending monthly meetings allows fathers to interact directly with TUS leadership (i.e. the President and Principal attend monthly meetings).
- Develop activities to build school spirit (i.e. the Father-Daughter Dance), promote service (i.e. Habitat for Humanity work days) and support girls' sports (i.e. Homecoming Event).
- Invite current faculty, staff, coaches and administrators to attend monthly Fathers' Club meetings to share their insight, thoughts and suggestions on how we as parents can further support our daughters' 6-12th grade experiences.
