All Pro Dad’s
Welcome back from your summer break. Another year of All Pro Dad’s breakfast and fellowship time is upon us. We would love to have all Dad’s, Grandpa’s, Uncles, and father figures join us the last Friday of each month for a time of connection with your Little Eagles, Middle Eagles, or Big Eagles. It is a time that is rewarding on many levels as we will delve into topics important and relevant in terms of how being involved, as a male, in the lives of our younger generations is critical. We are a group that will support one another, challenge one another, and always strive to better ourselves as the role models our children deserve.

Our meetings are conducted in the multi-purpose room of our Middle/High School building beginning at 7:15 a.m. Breakfast items are provided and all families are asked to enter through the athletic entrance.

Can’t wait to see us pack the “house” Friday, September 29th at 7:15. (Also stick around for Dudes Day and take your child/children to the LCS Bookfair.)

RSVP to: Ryan.Smith@lincolncharter.org OR Keith.Hain@lincolncharter.org.
