Student Life
All Pro Dad’s
It’s time to convene once again for our All Pro Dad’s breakfast. This Friday, December 1st is our next scheduled meeting. In lieu of raffle items we are asking for all Dad’s/Grandpa’s/Uncles/Step-dad’s/father figures, if possible, to bring a toy for either a boy or girl or both for the holiday season. These toys will be delivered to children and families in need on behalf of the Lincolnton Chapter of the All Pro Dad’s foundation.

Anything that you can contribute will help bring a smile to a child’s face during the holiday season. We will also have our All Pro Dad’s donation box on hand for any monetary donations that you would like to contribute.

Come on out and enjoy a time of connecting with your child/children/grandchildren etc…in a powerful, personal, and meaningful way.

Light breakfast items will be served. We look forward to seeing you at 7:15 a.m. this Friday, December 1st in the MS/HS multi-purpose room.  Please use the Athletic Entrance.  RSVP to Ryan Smith or Keith Hain.
