Decatur fathers are filling the cafeteria at Flat Shoals Elementary once a month for All Pro Dad Breakfast. All Pro Dad Breakfast is a national organization encouraging fathers to connect with their kids and so far the research proves children are thriving with the support of their fathers presence.
“Having them in the building makes a big difference” -Marlon Williams, student support specialist “We’re starting to see a difference in students behavior. We’re also seeing the fathers feel more comfortable to come into the schools, and that’s been fantastic.”
The focus of the program is not just fathers but father figures for children living in urban communities. Children that do not have active fathers other male figures are encouraged to join. To be apart of this program check with your local school administration.
