Dear Roosevelt Dads Club Members,

On behalf of the Roosevelt Dad’s Club Board of Directors, I would like to say thank you to all those that made it to our kickoff meeting last night. It was energizing for those of us on the board to see so many faces, both new and old, come out and support the Dads Club and the school.

If you missed the meeting or couldn’t hear me (my apologies), below are the main events for this school year (All events are also listed on the Roosevelt Dad’s Club Calendar).

We will have 2 – “Donuts with Dads Club” on Nov. 3rd and Feb. 2nd. This is a morning event and allows us to spend a little time with our kids before school and we will have drawings for prizes for the kids.Teddy’s Cafe starts Sept. 25th. This is our monthly opportunity to have a presence on campus and show both the faculty and our hard working students how important Roosevelt and their education is to us as dads. We will send out a sign-up genius for each Teddy’s Cafe and we ask that everyone try to at least make it out once.

On Sept. 25th from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM is the Roosevelt Old Fashioned Back-to-School Picnic. Co-sponsored with PTA there will be a DJ as well as a food truck.

Join us for the Roosevelt Dads Club Clay Shoot. This is scheduled for Nov. 13th from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM and is a fun “stress relieving” event that has grown over the last 2 years.

Dec. 12th is the Roosevelt Dads Club Holiday Bowl. Bring your kids bowling and give mom an opportunity to get in some holiday shopping. This is always a really fun event for the kids and fills up fast so keep an eye out for the sign up!

We’ve brought back Roosevelt Dads Club “Night at the Movies.” This year it will be held Friday Jan. 22nd from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Bring the entire family for a movie in the school courtyard under the stars.

Again this year we plan to attend the Gasparilla run as a water station serving water and Gatorade. This raises $1,000 annually and is a good time. Date to be determined.

Our final event is our 10th Annual Dads Club Golf Tournament on Friday, February 26th. Mark your calendar! This is our main source of fund raising for our club and we need your participation. The past 2 years we have raised around $30,000. Ask around, this event is a great time! We have lots of great raffle prizes as well as complimentary domestic and craft beer, food and more. Did I mention our Big Green Egg raffle? This was a big hit last year and will be back again this year!

Please keep your eye out for event reminders and sign-ups and if you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact myself or any board member.

Finally, if you haven’t signed up as a member yet, please do so by logging on tojoin.rooseveltdadsclub.com.

Again, thank you and we look forward to a great school year. See you soon!
