Who We Are
Flight Crew is a voluntary program established by the Adkins Elementary PTA for the purposes of serving the school and the community. By having fathers and father figures in the classrooms and hallways, we help create an enriching and positive environment. Studies show that when fathers are involved in a student’s education, they perform better academically, show improvement in self-esteem, and are more engaged with their teachers and peers.
Who Are We?
Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve by spending a day at Adkins and/or volunteering at school- and PTA-sponsored events
Flight Crew Goals:
- To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by our presence that education is important.
- Provide an extra set of eyes and ears to help enhance school security and prevent bullying
- Make a positive impact in the culture of the school and the community
