The Resurrection Men’s Club is a formal organization whose primary goal is to provide a school-based group for the adult males who play a significant role in the life of a Resurrection student. Membership of the Men’s Club will include fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other adult male members of the student’s extended family who participate at any of the club meetings or events.
Men’s Club will serve several purposes for Resurrection College Prep High School; organizing school-wide fundraising, enhancing the school grounds, and holding informal get-togethers and events. We know that students perform better in school when fathers or positive adult males are actively involved in their education; this is particularly true for teen-age girls. Research shows that students with positive male support perform better on standardized intelligence tests, earn better grades, and have more positive attitudes about school. Teen-age girls consistently report a higher level of self-esteem, self-confidence and good decision making when fathers or a positive adult male influence actively participate at the school level by attending athletic and non-athletic events, and participating in specific school projects or causes. Through the Resurrection Men’s Club activities, the adult men in the lives of our students can also become better acquainted with their student’s teachers, school administrators, and friends.
