3rd annual Fathers Walk

Main Preparatory Academy students – and their fathers and father figures – recently participated in the school’s third annual Fathers Walk. 

The school’s director, Nikita Tidwell, recognizes the importance of parental involvement and sees the Fathers Walk event as a great way to engage fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and other men who play an important role in students’ lives.

“Lots of our students live in single-parent homes,” Tidwell explains. “And in many families, the moms are the true heads of household that keep the ships afloat. The kids are so excited when their fathers and father figures engage in school activities!”

The event encourages students and their fathers and father figures to walk to school and enjoy breakfast together. This year’s activities included a scavenger hunt that served as the perfect opportunity for students to show off the building and it's newly renovated floor that was previously damaged by fire.

And it’s not just students that enjoy Main Prep’s Fathers Walk, which is part of a national initiative. “The dads especially enjoyed the scavenger hunt – it allowed them to spend more time with the kids and to see some of their work,” Tidwell said.

Dads and father figures who participated engaged with many of the kids, helping to ensure a good opportunity for all students, including those whose family members did not participate. “Everyone hung out together,“ Tidwell said.  “One of our students walked his sister to school that day.”
