WHAT: 
On Wednesday, April 20, Chester Community Charter School's (CCCS) East campus will host more than 125 fathers and male guardians to participate with their kindergarten- or first-grader, in its second annual "Doughnuts with Dad" event. The purpose of the event is to allow fathers, in the community of Chester, the opportunity to have one-on-one time with their scholar, in a school setting. The doughnuts for the event will be provided by BJ's Wholesale Club, and will be distributed to the scholars and dads by faculty and staff.

The School's students will present arts and crafts made specifically for their dads, and in return, the fathers, or male guardians, will read a story of his scholar's choice, to him or her, for half an hour. This event is designed to encourage more reading amongst students and their parents, and to recognize the fathers, or male guardians, who continuously support their students' academic accomplishments.
