Group to host pizza night for children and fathers

Dads, papas, big brothers and every guy in between who helps keep Skyway Elementary School students safe have been invited to “Dads and Kids” pizza night in the school cafeteria on Sept. 28, from 6 to 7 p.m.

After enjoying some pizza and something to drink, everybody will have the opportunity to learn about the Watch DOGS program, or Dads of Great Students. The presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m.

According to information on Skyway’s website, schools across the United States are using the program, which helps schools be “positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life.” The goal of the program is to have participants commit to spending at least one day at the school during the year to be a positive male role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.

The event is free for kids and dads.

To attend, call the school office at (208) 664-8998.
