f you’re a Huntersville, Blythe or J.V. Washam Elementary parent, you’ve probably seen them. Dads in matching shirts, lined up early in the morning to help students in the drop-off line. I noticed the “car dads,” as I called them, when I was dropping off my kids at Huntersville Elementary. It was truly moving to see dads show up in such a simple

but powerful way. I wondered whether this was unique to our school or part of something bigger. I discovered that these “car dads” are called the Huntersville HEROES, and they are part of something bigger: Be There Dad, a district-wide effort to get fathers more engaged in their children’s schools.
