Dads' Club Events

A message from the President
of the Brophy Dads' Club


It is my pleasure to welcome all of our dads to Brophy College Preparatory for the 2018-19 academic year. 

The Dads’ Club is the perfect venue to meet new friends, serve our school community, and more fully enjoy the “Brophy Experience.” We coordinate and staff many of the community service and Brophy social events. We encourage you to get involved early and take advantage of this special time in your son’s life. 

Please put the Dads' Club monthly meetings on your calendar and plan to attend. We guarantee fun, fellowship, food and drink! Check our twice-monthly newsletter for dates.
Have a great year, and please contact me if you have any questions about Dads' Club!

The Spring 2019 Father-Son Work Weekend will be held at Manresa on Friday, March 29 through Sunday, March 31, 2019. This weekend is about enjoying the moment, spending time with your son and helping the school all at once. Arrival is Friday with a kick-off dinner. Saturday will start with a hearty breakfast followed by working the grounds and performing a variety of general maintenance tasks at Manresa. Sunday is the close of the weekend with breakfast and clean-up. All meals are provided. 
You will receive a separate email by March 8 letting you know if you have been selected to attend or placed on the waitlist. If we have cancellations, we will add folks from the waitlist as space allows. Sign up here. Thank you for participating in the Brophy Dads' Club and for your interest in helping at the Work Weekend.
