Cedar Ridge Kindergarten kids were all smiles Friday, October 5, as they greeted their dads who were visiting on this special day. They ate doughnuts together and then took a tour of the school. The students served as tour guides as they showed their Dads the media center, met specials’ teachers, Nurse Anne, and Mrs. Lawson at the front desk.
Dads and kids then went outside to play on the playground together. They had a great time hula hooping, shooting baskets, making chalk drawings on the sidewalks, and climbing on the playground equipment. The morning ended with each kindergarten class competing in the tug-of-war; then it was the dads’ turn to do the same thing.
Departing dads said, “Thanks for a great time” and took mementos of the day home with them. One dad shared with the front office that his child made a tuxedo to explain what “his” dad wears to work every day. They also estimated how tall, how much each dad weighed, and what their shoe size was.
From the eyes of a child,---- one student’s dad was estimated to be about 14 feet tall, weigh about 100 and have a shoe size of 14. I bet from his perspective, those estimates would be just about right.
Dads left the building thanking everyone for the great time. We do know that here at Cedar Ridge, kindergarten dads understand a lot more about what happens here with their kids.
