WHAT IS DAD'S NIGHT?
The Dads of Lincoln Elementary School of Wyckoff started Dad's Night in 1999 as a way to bring together the community and raise money for Lincoln Elementary Schools. Once a year, Lincoln School Dads entertain their Lincoln School Students & Families with a 90-minute production of silly skits, songs, and commercials put on by Lincoln School Dads. In addition, we use the event as a fundraiser for the Lincoln School PTO and work with great sponsors such as X, Y, Z to bring together families for a family friendly evening of fun and laughs.
MEETING OTHER DADS
While Lincoln School has many groups and opportunities for the Moms to meet, it can be difficult for the Dads to build a social circle. Dad's Night was designed as a chance for Dads to grow their social circles and it works quite well. Between working together designing skits, rehearsing in silly attire, or meeting at the Brownstone to plan, you have a great opportunity to meet other Dads.
WHO NEEDS TALENT?
The good news is that most of the Dads that partake in Dad's Night are just plain old dads and not professional signers, actors, musicians, etc. At the end of the night, our children don't care. What gets the best reaction from the students are simple, silly jokes and sight gags. It doesn't take too much talent to get a pie in the face ! And if you really don't want to be on stage, we still need people to work the lights, curtains, sound, video, concessions, and crowd control.
