PETERSBURG, Va. (WRIC) — About 300 dads went back to school Tuesday, attending the inaugural Lunch with Dads event at Walnut Hill Elementary School in Petersburg.
The event was held from 9:30 am to 11 am on Tuesday, September 20. Parents of younger children were invited to the school to partake in a Chick-Fil-A breakfast and activities that promoted learning.
The event distributed books for all ages, as well as math worksheets with resources for dads and kids to bond and learn at the same time.
St. Petersburg said the next “Dinner with Dads” could be early next year, and the school is considering creating an additional “Dinner with Dads” for those who couldn’t make it Tuesday.
