We’re excited you’ve joined us for the upcoming school year. The Fathers’ Club is an organization that includes all dads and male guardians of Saint Thomas Academy Cadets. By the nature of your son attending Saint Thomas Academy, you are a member of the Fathers' Club!
You’re invited to join us for our Annual Meeting and Kickoff, typically held in September. Our Executive Team also meets twice a month to organize our activities for the year, connect with other STA constituents and collaborate with school leadership. If you’re interested in becoming a part of our efforts, drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Fathers’ Club engages in a wide range of activities throughout the year designed to support the school, provide additional experiences for our sons, and have a little fun ourselves! Some of our most notable activities include:
❖ First Friday Mass - 7:15 AM in the Saint Thomas Academy Chapel
o Join us in the school cafeteria for coffee and conversation after a short Mass.
Every first Friday of the month!
❖ The FC Burger Stand at Home Football Games
o Meet other dads and help with our fundraising as we provide our Signature Burger
Baskets at all home football games. Be on the lookout for our volunteer sign-up list.
❖ Fathers’ Club Spotlight Events
o Join us in celebrating our teams, clubs, and activities all year with food and fun!
❖ Fall and Winter Socials
o Connect with other dads and alumni for fun and relaxation!
❖ Trivia Night 2024
o Gather your team and play to win! This annual extravaganza is a great opportunity to
kick the winter blues and enjoy a great night fellowship and competition.
❖ The Mother - Son Dance
o The Fathers’ Club proudly hosts this annual spring event for our upper school sons and
the most special lady in their life!
❖ The Father - Son Banquet
o All Cadets and their fathers or male guardians are invited to join us in the spring of 2024
for our annual banquet, awards, and keynote speaker.
❖ The Fathers’ Club BBQ and Smoker at the Military Ball

Join us for one or all our events and activities. We hope you will make the most of your time at Saint Thomas Academy by participating in the many activities at the school throughout the year. Reach out to me or to any of the fathers on the team to ask about how you can get involved. We look forward to getting to know you and your son!

“FOR OUR SONS”
Meet our Advisory Board Members & Class Reps!
We welcome all fathers and male guardians who would like to participate in the Fathers’ Club planning team. We have a number of events that are chaired by dads that could use a co-chair to help out and to learn the role. We also encourage team Captain's Parents and Class Reps to connect with the Fathers' Club any time we have a chance to work together. Think about joining the team!
