All Pro Dad
All Pro Dad is a Family First’s fatherhood program equipping men to be better fathers and father-figures. Launched in 1997 with the help of Coach Tony Dungy, All Pro Dad asks 3 things of fathers and/or father figures: one minute a day, one hour a month and one day a year. GPISD launched All Pro Dad in the 2016-2017 school year as a pilot program. The 3rd Annual Draft Day and training camp was held September 25, 2018 at the Education Center, 2602 S. Beltline Rd in Grand Prairie.
All Pro Dad Award
GPISD All Pro Dads is presenting our first annual All Pro Dad Award. We’re asking our GPISD students to submit a brief letter on why their nominee should receive the All Pro Dad Award. The nominee doesn’t necessarily have to be a dad, it can be a brother, uncle or other positive male influence.
We’re looking for someone for the All Pro Dad Award who has the following traits:
- Good listener
- Good helper
- Good citizen
Tell us why your nominee should receive the “All Pro Dad Award”. Winner will receive a $75 gift card.
The submission must be done by a student (help by an adult family member is OK for our younger students). Simply click this link to submit your entry.
Submit your entry online by 9pm 3/22/2020. The winner will be announced at the Virtual Super Cereal Bowl on April 17.
- All Pro Dad coaches and assistant coaches are not eligible to win. You must be present at the Virtual All Pro Dad Super Cereal Bowl to win.
One minute a day: Play of the Day
The Play of the Day is a daily fatherhood email and our fathers/father figures are able to sign up to receive this free daily email. Fathers and father figures sign up via text to receive a tip every day.
Text “APD” to 44144 to sign up for the Play of the Day.
One hour a month: Food and Fun
Food and fun in the cafeteria is a time for dads and kids to share. Fathers and father figures meet once a month with other dads and their kids, engage in conversation, and strengthen their relationship. Not only do you connect with your child(ren), but you will also connect with other fathers and father figures and kids from the school. Meetings are typically held between 7:30am-8:00am and an All Pro Dad team captain facilitates the meeting.
One day a year: Super Cereal Bowl Breakfast
Super Cereal Bowl Breakfast is in April. Families bring their own box of cereal and program will provide water, juice, milk, soups, bowls, cups, napkins and spoons donated by SFE. Different stations will be set up giving dad's and their kids an opportunity to have some fun and spend some quality time together.
