Calling all fathers and father figures!! 

We have an exciting new program coming to Homestead this year!   

On Thursday, September 7th from 6:30 – 7:30 pm we will be having our 1st annual ‘Dads and Kids’ Pizza Night at our school.  You will meet here at the school cafeteria at 6:15pm for FREE pizza and drinks.   There will be a chance to win gift cards too!   At 6:30, we will have a presentation about our WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads of Great Students) Program.  WATCH D.O.G.S.® is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of FATHERS AND FATHER FIGURES in their students’ life.  Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model to the students and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.
 

Please save the date and we hope to see you there to learn more about this amazing opportunity coming to Homestead!  Any questions, please contact Mr. Perry at This email address is being protected from spambots.
