Guys, sneak this in before breakfast, and you’ll have a very happy day! Foundation Charter Academies is inviting 100 men to form welcoming lines for its students at its two school locations this Friday morning before school. This is their fourth annual fun and feel-good event where each arriving student gets to experience adult support from their communities, upfront and personal, on their 100th day of the school year.

The men’s job is to line the walkways and school corridors to greet, hug, high-five and cheer on the young scholars on their way to their home rooms. The event takes about an hour to complete, after which the positive role-model males are invited to a light breakfast as a heartfelt thank you from the Academy.
