About this Event

Arlington ISD Dads Engaged for Excellence is an initiative to encourage dads, uncles, brothers, and other positive male role models to become more active in their students’ education. The presence and involvement of dads and other positive male role models protect children from many vulnerabilities. Engaged fathers, whether living in or outside of home, help foster a child’s overall health and socio-emotional well-being.

Father FEST supports this objective by creating an environment for the family where they can come together for fun, food and activities to support the family with tools and resources to support them in

• Decreasing the summer slide by giving families tools to support continued learning at home.

• Providing resources and opportunities from Community Partners with summer programs to support families with continued learning and opportunities

• Hands-on activities giving families ideas and tools centered around building strong family bonds.

This is a day where we celebrate responsible fatherhood in Arlington ISD with an event for the entire family. This event consists of fun activities with food, games and live music. This is a FREE event and open to the entire city.

Papás Participando para la Excelencia de Arlington ISD es una iniciativa para animar a los papás, tíos, hermanos y otros modelos masculinos a seguir para que se involucren más en la educación de sus estudiantes. La presencia y participación de los papás y otros modelos masculinos protegen a los niños de muchas vulnerabilidades. Los padres comprometidos, ya sea que vivan dentro o fuera del hogar, ayudan a fomentar la salud en general y el bienestar socioemocional del niño.

Father FEST (Fiesta para el papá) apoya este objetivo creando un ambiente para la familia dónde pueden reunirse para divertirse, comer y realizar actividades de apoyo con herramientas y recursos tales como:

• Disminuir la pérdida de aprendizaje durante el verano proporcionando a las familias herramientas para apoyar el aprendizaje continuo en casa.

• Proveer recursos y oportunidades con programas de verano por parte de los Socios de la Comunidad (Community Partners) para apoyar a las familias con el aprendizaje continuo y oportunidades.

• Actividades prácticas que dan a las familias ideas y herramientas centradas en la construcción de fuertes lazos familiares.

Este es un día en el que celebramos la paternidad responsable en Arlington ISD con un evento para toda la familia. Este evento consta de actividades divertidas con comida, juegos y música en vivo. Este es un evento GRATUITO y abierto a toda la ciudad.
