  • October All Pro Dads Breakfast

    Our second ALL PRO DADS BREAKFAST held on October 15 was wonderful. The speaker was Shaughnessy Haynes, Sr. He talked to the students about working real hard to accomplish their goals and to be successful in school and in life. He made four specific points: Find out what your passion is and pursue it; set goals to achieve your passion/dream; find ways to stay motivated; and enjoy the process. Ms. Walker challenged the dads to spend some time at the school volunteering before the next breakfast which will be November 19th, and also left them with a question to ponder: How can we work together to get students to the breakfast who really need to be there to hear encouraging words and feel loved to boost their self-esteem and confidence levels?
