Sorgho Elementary School will host their first “Because I Love You” Day on Thursday, Oct. 25. The day will begin with a special breakfast at 7 a.m. for all students and their guests – an adult who loves them.
The idea for this event originated with Family Resource Center coordinator Lucas Vilorio, who facilitates the school’s All-Pro Dads program. All-Pro Dads encourages fathers and father figures to spend quality time with their children. Those events are highly successful, but Vilorio noticed that some children were not able to participate because they do not have a positive male who plays an active role in their lives.
“The ‘Because I Love You’ Day will be similar, but invites all students because every child deserves to be loved,” Vilorio said. Children may invite a parent, guardian, grandparent, neighbor, teacher, mentor or any other adult who has demonstrated their love for the child.
