It's pretty cool that your kids school is doing this. Mom's are usually (not saying dads aren't involved because Albert is there just as much as me) the ones who are at the school doing things with kids classes and volunteering.
My girls school in Austin had a program called "Dads at the Door". Dads signed up to commit 4 weeks spread out over the school year to be at the front door of the school greeting kiddos when they come in the morning. Pretty neato.
