Corona – On September 15, Adams Elementary invited fathers, grandfathers, and other male role models to spend an evening of barbecued burgers and fun activities with their children. This time spent playing and engaging is crucial in the development of every student. The Dads All In event is an initiative put on at school communities that invites fathers (or other male role models) to spend some quality time with their kids. The goal of Dads All In is to increase the contributions of fathers to the well-being of their children by providing them with opportunities to engage with their child academically, socially, and within the community.

Dads and students were treated to burgers as the sun set over Adams Elementary. A photo booth was set up along with a paper airplane table. Dads and kids then got the chance to play together in activities such as an obstacle course, sack races, a pizza box run, and more. Smiles and laughter echoed throughout the late afternoon as dads and kids ran and played together.

The Adams Dads All In evening was lead by Assistant Principal Manny Gonzalez and Russo Vargas, a parent of the school’s community and Dads All In representative.
