Upcoming Events

DES Dads, please come to our All Pro Dad Breakfast this month.


 Friday, April 18 - 6:45 to 7:45am

Please arrive for breakfast in the cafeteria (6:45 - 7:15am)

Program will begin in the media center at 7:20.

This month's topic is "Working with Enthusiasm"


All Pro Dad Dad's Day is a simple idea with a profound impact. It's a one-hour monthly breakfast held before school where fathers and their children meet with other dads and kids in the school cafeteria. During this time, we will discuss a wide range of family topics, spend time together, create fun memories, and leave equipped with resources to strengthen your relationship with your child.


The program is fun and free! All you need to do is attend, and if you want to purchase breakfast, you may do so in the cafeteria by using your child's "mylunchmoney" account, cash or check ($1.65 adults, $1.20 children). If you do not have a "mylunchmoney" account, please register for one at before the meeting.


To help with keeping the parking lot and carpool drop off running smoothly, please park at GA Perimeter College and walk over to school.


Please visit our chapter website for dates and more information. or contact Chris Wilburn at: 

Ident-A-Kid Returning to DES   





We have invited IDENT-A-Kid to provide their safety I.D. Program.  Let's face it, times have changed. The danger of a child being lost or abducted is very real and disturbing.  All children should have an I.D. card. Ident-A-Kid cards contain your child's photo and complete physical description. The cards are laminated for durability and intended to be carried by you and everyone who cares for your child. The U.S. Government's Social Security Administration recognizes the Ident-A-Kid card to be used in supporting as a secondary I.D.  

The date is: April 17th ,Thursday. Look for the form to fill out and return with your child on or before the above date.  One (1) card $8, two (2) $12, Best Buy four (4) for $15, the cost is per child (each).  Purchase 2 or more cards (per child) and you can also have this ID sent to your cell phone. 

Ident-A-Kid supplies the Security System to schools for the Safety of veryone.  

Thank you for your support with this great program!
