End of School/Graduation Week is next!

Hello all,

I Love My Daddy Week was full of hard work, laughs, and a lot of love! Read on below to learn all about what the students did throughout the week to show their appreciation for their Daddies!

In order to prepare the perfect gift for the big celebration on Friday, the students worked diligently throughout the week on their Father’s Day gift – a personalized “I Love My Daddy Because.. Book”. This book was personalized to each Daddy in the school because it was authored and illustrated by the students!

The book factory opened up on Monday as the students began coloring and decorating the covers of their books. During the afternoon on Monday, the students brainstormed a list of reasons why Daddies are so special. Here is the list they came up with.



On Tuesday morning, the students added their handprint to the back cover of their books. While the painted back cover was drying, the students were interviewed to answer the question, “Why do you love Daddy?”. Their words were recorded, printed, then added into their books. Here are some of the students’ answers as to why they love their Daddies.

I love my Daddy because he gives me lollipops when I eat all of my dinner.

I love my Daddy because he gives the best baths.

I love my Daddy because he scoots around real fast in the car.

I love my Daddy because he is really strong!

From the wide range of answers that the students gave, it was clear to the teachers that the Park Prep Daddies are the best around!

During the afternoon on Tuesday, the students brainstormed a list of things that they enjoy doing with Daddies. Here is their list.



During the afternoon on both Wednesday and Thursday, the students rehearsed their special Father’s Day performance. Be sure to check out the video below to see how the students did at their live performance!

On Wednesday, the students began illustrating their books to match the words they had added on Tuesday.



On Thursday morning, the students decorated the backside of their books. The plain backing on their books did not stay plain for long! Boy, were they colorful!



Friday morning kicked off with the final step of the gift – wrapping! Using colored tissue paper and tape, the students folded and wrapped their gifts so as not to ruin the surprise later.  With a little help from the teachers, the wrapping was secured with a special little gift tag.

Before the students knew it, the clock struck two and the Father’s Day Celebration began!  One by one, the Daddies arrived at PPA ready to celebrate. The celebration began with a special read-aloud of Todd Parr’s, The Daddy Book.  After the story, the students gathered together to put on the special, well-rehearsed performance.  The students then presented their Daddies with their gifts. As you can see from the looks on the Daddies’ faces, it was clear that the books were a huge hit!

We hope the Park Prep Daddies enjoyed the celebration and their gifts! Thank you to all the PPA Daddies for being so great. You really are the best! Happy (early) Father’s Day!
