Mavs’ Dads Day is about spending time at school with your child. It is a special day for Dads/Grandfathers/Uncles or any strong male role model in your child’s life to be present on campus. Mavs’ Dads Day is help 3-4 times each year.

4. Attend all, some or just one of the Mavs’ Dads Days. Attend what you can. If you can only spend a few minutes at lunch, that is always better than none. Even a few minutes makes a statement.

5. Attend all three (drop off, lunch and recess) or just one. Spend the time that you can. One is better than none.
