Metro Schools hosts Fatherhood Festival

044

Metro Schools welcomed MNPS fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, mentors and other father figures for the Fatherhood Festival at Watkins Park Community Center in June.

The men spent a day of family fun with their young scholars including games, activities, music and food in the park. The event also featured rotating hands-on activities, workshops and community vendor booths that provided education materials and giveaway items to participants.

Men who have volunteered in the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program were honored by the MNPS Department of Family and Community Engagement and the Mayor’s Office.

The goal of the event was to empower men from Metro families to become even more engaged in their local school community.
