Welcome! Do you know that decades of research show that when parents are involved at the school, students have:

  • Higher grades, test scores, and graduation rates
  • Better school attendance
  • Increased motivation, better self-esteem
  • Lower rates of suspension
  • Decreased use of drugs and alcohol
  • Fewer instances of violent behavior

Studies show the effect is multiplied when fathers volunteer at their child’s school. The VRE Dads’ Club is a way for fathers of VRE students to participate more fully in their children’s education and to help raise money for school technology. The time commitment isn’t big, maybe an hour or two per month, but the benefits are huge and lasting, and the events are enjoyable and personally satisfying. So subscribe to the mailing list at right to start receiving meeting and event notifications, and commit to help strengthen your student’s educational environment; you’ll be glad you did!

Dads,

Field day is coming this Friday May 19th and we still need volunteers. This is a favorite day for the kids but we can’t pull it off without your help. We need volunteers to help setup in the morning, oversee the games, and help tear down in the afternoon. Please give a few hours of your time to make great memories for your child. Go to this link to volunteer.

Thanks,

Doug

Dads,

We have two volunteer opportunities for tomorrow, Friday March 10th.  We need some dads to volunteer to help with the APEX Fun Run. Please go to this link to volunteer. Also, we need a few dads to go into the library at noon and help disassemble the Book Fair. It shouldn’t take very long so please contact  Ms. Khosla directly if you can assist or just go to the library. Thanks in advance for helping out.

Gentlemen,

Sorry for the confusion: we will have the teacher appreciation breakfast on Wednesday February 15th. Those of you who have volunteered to help, please confirm that you will be available to help on Wednesday. Thank you!

The Dads Club does a teachers appreciation breakfast during Valentine’s week.  We just need a few guys to help from 7-7:30AM on Wednesday February 15th so let me know if you can help by sending an email to doug@vredads.org.
