All Pro Dads Breakfast creates a deeper bond between these students with their mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts and uncles.

At the start of each breakfast, the parent speaks about something that makes them proud of their child.

“It’s a very positive way to bond with your student,” said Steve Viessman, Instructional Parent. “It brings families to our school to experience one of the great programs that we have here at Lincoln. We also want families to continue that positive message at home.”

With this being the first breakfast of the year, the theme for September is positivity.

“Positivity is the theme for September,” said Viessman. “It’s good because of the fact that it helps get our school year off to a great start. With it being Patriots Day, all the more reason to have positivity be out there because it’s definitely something that is needed in our country and in our school community every day.”

The theme for October will be reading.

Northfield Elementary and Geil Elementary hosts this program the second Tuesday of every month and Lincoln Elementary on the second Wednesday of every month starting at 7:00am.
