      • The last All Pro Dads will be this Friday, May 17
      • Thank you to Rob Holtzman for his continuous leadership and support in this program. We appreciate all of his efforts throughout the years he’s been at HHMS. 
  • Dads: 
  • I hope your schedule will allow you to attend this Friday’s APD Day at HHMS. We’ll start at 7:40 am in the HHMS Cafeteria, and will wrap up by 8:20 am.
  • Since this is the last APD Day for the year, and my last time serving as your volunteer team captain, I felt it appropriate to run through several of the topics we’ve previously discussed, to remind our kiddos of their importance.
  • One topic we’ll discuss is how to FAIL FORWARD from mistakes and losses they’ve experienced. Remember – get knocked down 7 times, get up 8. The only way we lose is if we give up, and we NEVER give up on our dreams, hopes, and aspirations.
  • Join me and many other like-minded Dads this Friday by clicking on the registration link below, or by using the attached QR code.
  • Thank you, and I’ll see you on Friday!
