W.A. Perry Middle School Hosts Event for Fathers
Fathers and father figures, uncles, big brothers and other males who are significant in the lives of W.A. Perry Middle School students were invited to a special event in their honor.
Men in the W.A. Perry community were invited to attend F.B.I. (Fathers Being Involved) Night on Thursday, October 2 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the school’s lecture hall.
After enjoying a delicious tailgate/barbeque, attendees visited information booths, enter drawings for door prizes and were inspired by speeches from community leaders. One of the most popular events was family portrait station, where students and their guests took print photos they will cherish for a lifetime. The first 30 fathers to arrive received a special T-shirt commemorating the event.
F.B.I. Night is sponsored by the W.A. Perry guidance department in an effort to create opportunities for fathers/males to get more involved in the school. The guidance department stresses that this event is not just for fathers. Stepfathers and grandfathers, as well as male cousins, coaches, mentors, pastors and family friends of Perry students are welcome to attend. Members of the community who would like more information can contact school guidance counselor Jameka D. Young at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 256-6347.
