Kiddie City Hosts Fathers' "Hoop It Up" Night
Kiddie City Childcare Community hosted its first annual "Hoop It Up". This Father Friendly program is part of the Universal Pre-K (UPK) initiative to involve male role models in partnership activities. The event took place on Friday, January 18 from 5:00 to 6:00 PM in the Kiddie City Gymnasium. Volunteers from VASJ helped to lead the basketball event. Fathers participated with their children in a traditional "hoop shoot" and then later participated in a fathers' team game. Children were able to participate in the face-painting booth and enjoyed freshly popped popcorn. All student participants received a participation medal, and fathers were entered into a raffle to win a cooler on wheels (Won by Garland Clay, Jr.) or smoothie machine (Won by Jordan Novak, Sr.). A fun evening was had by all who were in attendance! We are planning to continue this popular event in the near future. Stay posted!
