Welcome Letter from our 2020-2021 Fathers' Club President
Greetings Gwynedd Dads and Guardians,
My name is Brett Keaton. I represent three generations of Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School tradition including my mother-in-law, my wife, four sister-in-laws, and finally my daughter Ellie ‘21. I am pleased to be serving as the Fathers’ Club President for the 2020-2021 school year.
I would like to offer a warm welcome to the new fathers entering the Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School community. You and your daughters are joining a community rich in Mercy Spirit that is committed to empowering the girls to achieve all they can aspire to. Father’s Club has been a great program for the fathers and their daughters over the years. I anticipate this year to be a little different with the social measure that need to be in place.
The primary goal of the Fathers’ Club is to continue the mission of the school and help our daughters grow in the Mercy Spirit. We are focused on how we, as fathers and guardians, can enhance our daughters’ Gwynedd experience while spending quality time with them. We plan on hosting a few events throughout the year such as a cooking night (tentatively scheduled for October 3), a Phillies game outing preceded by a tailgate, and other gatherings. The Fathers’ Club also sponsored frequent service work with the Face2Face organization in Germantown and St. Vincent’s Soup Kitchen. These are great opportunities to work with our daughters while providing a worthwhile service.
Please save the date of Thursday, September 10, at 7:00 p.m. for our first Father’s Club meeting when we will discuss our plans for the year. Our meeting will be held outside in the courtyard/quad across from the gym along the glass corridor. Obviously, this year will be more challenging for any in person activities with ever-changing guidelines due to COVID-19, but we hope to offer fun experiences for you and your Gwynedd Girl.
Please visit our Golf Classic tab on the website to learn about our annual 29th Annual Golf Classic planned for October 5 at the Bluestone Country Club. Not a golfer? You can still participate with raffle items and silent auctions by donating or purchasing items. It is a fun afternoon in support of the GMAHS girls.
I look forward to meeting the incoming freshman dads/guardians as well as returning dads/guardians as we start a new year at Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments at 215-990-8974 or email@example.com.
