Head Start Preschool's Male Hero Day

Head Start Preschool's Male Hero Day
    MVSD’s Head Start/State Preschool/Children’s Center recently hosted its Annual Be a Hero Day to honor the male figures who have, and continue to participate in the education of a preschool child. The annual event is part of the preschool program’s Male Involvement program and welcomes fathers, grandfathers, uncles, cousins, friends and neighbors who play a significant role in the lives of the preschool students.
     This year’s theme was Time to Glitter and Shine and cosmetology students from the Professional Institute of Beauty were on hand to teach the male figures how to brush, braid and style their preschooler’s hair. Once the students were all dolled up, they took a photo with their special male hero.
      Tony Lugo, principal of La Primaria School provided some key strategies for the male figures and the important role they play in their young child’s life. Dinner was provided and everyone had a wonderful time.
     “Thank you for joining us tonight as we celebrate the male superheroes in our preschool programs,” said Alma Gonzales, MVSD’s Director of Preschool Programs. “Your involvement during your child’s preschool years is essential to their future success and we salute you for partnering with us and being a superhero!”
     Mountain View’s preschool program takes pride in promoting strong male involvement in the lives of its preschool students. Each male volunteer was encouraged to volunteer in the Head Start classrooms and participate in school readiness activities at home with their preschool child.
