A Letter from Shaune Shelby, Brebeuf Dads Club President
Dear Brebeuf Dads,
I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for your participation and involvement during the 2022-2023 academic year at Brebeuf. Your commitment to the school community and your dedication to supporting our students have made a significant impact.
Your presence at various events, fundraisers, and volunteering efforts has been truly remarkable. Whether it was cheering on our sports teams, assisting with school projects, or providing mentorship and guidance to our students, your financial contributions have been invaluable.
As we approach the upcoming academic year, I am excited to continue our partnership and work together for the betterment of our students. Your continued involvement and support will undoubtedly shape their educational experience and contribute to their personal growth.
Moms I encourage you to support your husband in joining the Brebeuf Jesuit Dads club. By doing so, you can create a stronger support network for your child, fostering their growth and success.
Here are three reasons why it will greatly benefit your child:
- Community Engagement: The Brebeuf Jesuit Dads club provides an opportunity for fathers to actively engage with the school community. By participating, you can strengthen the bond between your family and the school, creating a supportive environment for your child's education. Research consistently shows that children thrive when their parents are involved in their school life.
- Role Modeling: Your child looks up to their father as a role model, and by participating in the Dads club, you can set a positive example of involvement, dedication, and commitment. When fathers actively participate in their child's school activities, it reinforces the importance of education and sends a powerful message about the value of engagement in their lives.
- Networking and Support: The Dads club provides a platform for dads to connect, share experiences, and build meaningful relationships with other parents. This network can be a valuable resource for both you and your child, as you can exchange insights, advice, and support, helping to navigate the challenges and joys of parenthood together.
Furthermore, I encourage your husband to consider joining a committee within the Dads club. Here are a few reasons why this active involvement can be rewarding:
Making a Difference: By joining a committee, your husband can actively contribute to shaping and enhancing the experiences of all Brebeuf Jesuit students. Whether it's organizing events, fundraising, or offering expertise, his efforts will have a direct impact on the educational journey of numerous children.
Building Camaraderie: Working alongside other dedicated fathers on a committee will create lasting friendships and a sense of camaraderie. Collaborating with like-minded individuals who share a common goal of supporting the school community can lead to meaningful connections and a sense of belonging.
The Newly Created Daduation Award
The Dads club has established a special recognition, the Daduation Awards, which honors fathers who have participated or served in Leadership for four years with the Dads Club. These Dads who are actively engaging in the club will be eligible for this prestigious award. It's a wonderful way we seek to acknowledge the dedication and commitment to your child's school and community.
