The 2023-2024 school year at HES is going to be an excellent opportunity for you to get involved in many different ways.  Heritage Elementary School and our PTA have so many groups, events, and volunteer opportunities with which to get connected and give back. I encourage you to start now, to find a group or club to plug in with, start networking, and make the most of this school year.  I can assure you, it will fly by and you do not want to miss out!



Dads' Club is a volunteer group of HES fathers who give back in various ways throughout the year.  We like to think of ourselves as a fun crowd and we look for any excuse to get together and have a good time.  Oftentimes that takes the form of off-campus get-togethers, but our primary responsibility is having a positive paternal impact on the many students at Heritage Elementary School. Here is a sampling of how we serve throughout the year:


  • Cafeteria Gentlemen - If you're interested in helping, please use the signup genius found here.  While these are not hard and fast dates to serve, signing up for a published, available spot gives the faculty their needed advanced notice.  Should you only be available to work on a particular day (not listed), text/email me, and I will add the date to the signup genius for you to register.  As always,  background check required for all on-campus volunteering during school hours.
  • High Five Fridays - As evidenced by some of our latest turnouts (25+!), we're keeping the tradition alive. Beginning with Spring Break (3/22), we will finish the year with High Fives each week! See the High5 schedule for our next outing.  Keep bringing your fun ideas and costumes to the morning drop off circles.
  • Dads' Club Playground Cookout/Playdate -  Parr Park, April 15th, 12p-3p.   BYO grilling tools/foods, sharable sides/snacks, and students.  We have the pavillion reserved for this time period.
  • Poker Night - John Paul Grafa was appointed as Committee Chair to plan and organize Dads' Club first poker night gathering.  Plan for mid-May over a weekend.  Final details to come.
  • Gaga Ball Pit Restoration -  The two wooden octagons at the playground by the swing sets are used for a game called Gaga Ball. It's played by all grades during recess. The ground in those areas is sandy, uneven and full of stickers making it a less-than-desirable playing surface. So, Dads' Club is venturing to have these two spaces leveled, cleaned and turfed over to create a more solid foundation for the students' game. We recently gained ISD and school approval to "break ground" on this project.  Graciously, the turf is being donated, covering the primary expense of this endeavor.  We need several helpers with landscaping experience and/or a strong back (if you've used a shovel, you qualify, so no scapegoating) in the upcoming weeks to get the area leveled and ready for turfing.  Signup HERE if you are able to help! More work days will be added as the project progresses.
  • PE Days with Dads' Club - Spring Semester events are in the works! 

The goal is to have enough variety of events, that no matter your work/home life schedule, you can find a worthwhile and fulfilling area in which to serve and participate.


Please join us at any of our upcoming events to get involved.  And don't forget to add yourself to the Dads' Club email list by following the directions above.


See you around campus!
