Hey Daisy, check out what Tony Dungy is doing!
Daisy, I know you’re a big fan of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy…but did you see what he’s up to now, besides being a broadcaster on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
Mr. Dungy and his wife, Lauren, are trying to encourage more parents to get involved in their kids’ education through Family First, a national non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families, and it’s the official family initiative of the National PTA.
Coach Dungy is also a spokesman for All-Pro Dad, the fatherhood program of Family First, which sponsors Dad’s Day at schools where dads can come to school with their kids and spend an hour meeting with other dads and kids. The plan is for the group to have discussions on important topics that help create closer relationships. It’s an awesome idea and I hope they bring this to our school.
But it’s not the only great idea that he is working on. Mrs. Dungy is also involved as a spokesperson for iMom. It’s similar to All-Pro Dad, where they also sponsor a similar gathering, with moms and their kids at school with a variety of topics revolving around raising and guiding school-aged children.
Check out the links below for more information about these great ways our parents can become more involved in our education! I love when my parents help me with my homework, or on special days when they drive me to school, or home from school. I think most kids do too, don’t you?
