On Father’s Day, families make memories. The dad jokes, the family bonding time, and more are elements that Stacey Caldwell, media center specialist, can identify with. 

“I remember when I was little I was in the Girl Scouts and we all got a tree and we planted the tree in the yard with our dads. That tree is still there in my parent’s yard and it’s huge,” S. Caldwell said. 

Joe Caldwell, graduation coach, is making memories with his sons now. Even the little things like gifts make the day special in its own way.

Recalling a previous Father’s Day, “Jace got me this ratchet set that we used it to work on this old motorcycle. So we were using that and he was so excited that he got to use it,” J. Caldwell said.

Spending time together is a big part of what fathers look forward to on Father’s Day. Emily Gardner, US History teacher, loves how her husband C. Gardner looks forward to having fun with their kids.

How much he invests in them and how much time with them and just the everyday stuff that he is involved in. He doesn’t ever say ‘Oh you should do that because you are the mom.’ He does it all,””

“How much he invests in them and how much time with them and just the everyday stuff that he is involved in. He doesn’t ever say ‘Oh you should do that because you are the mom.’ He does it all,” E. Gardner said.

S. Caldwell sees similar things in her husband J. Caldwell. Great dads show passion for their kids and will sacrifice for them.

“He prioritizes our kids. He coaches Little League.  he sacrifices doing things he wants to do to do stuff with them and that’s what makes a great daddy,” S. Caldwell said.

When there is a great dad involved Father’s Day is easy to celebrate.

All it takes is being around them to get a happy vibe. Each family has their own traditions and it’s those traditions that make Father’s Day special.

“We usually go to church and then we usually try to have either a nice lunch or a nice dinner, either go out or grill, whatever they are in the mood for,” E. Gardner said.

Having fun, and enjoying what is right in front of us is important. There are many options for Father’s Day activities. As long as the fathers enjoy the day, nothing is off the table.

Going out with the family and spending a nice day out in the sun is one way to spend Father’s Day. S. Caldwell agrees.

“… we celebrate Father’s Day at the beach. We’ll usually cookout or something,” S. Caldwell said.

The beach seems like a popular vacation place for Father’s Day. When asked about possible plans for this year, “Probably just going to the beach,” E. Gardner said.

Father’s Day is important because dads deserve recognition for all they do, both big and small.
