During the 2017-2018 school term, Principal Batiste asked Phillip Britt (art teacher) about starting a Dad’s Club. We had not been able to get a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) started with any consistency since the first one in 2011-2012.
This group has been more successful with gathering dads (grandfathers, uncles, older brothers, and community members) with helping our students and school excel. “A Few Good Men,” composed of male staff, community leaders and dad’s, came forward in May 2018 and sponsored their first activity and fund raiser–a successful Crawfish Boil on campus. All was going well, until the pandemic struck.
We hope to resurrect the group soon! Art Teacher Phillip Britt is scheduled to still be in charge. Listen carefully for the call for “A Few Good Men.”
