7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfast - The Pacesetter

Friday, January 10 • Breakfast served at 7:00am

Breakfast: $5 for Chick-Fil-A Chicken Minis and Coffee, Orange Juice, or Milk


For Grades: 1st Grade 2nd Grade 3rd Grade 4th Grade 5th Grade 6th Grade

This year we want to give boys a chance to learn more about what it means to be a man while spending time with an adult that is teaching them about manhood. So, we are hosting a monthly breakfast focusing on the 7 Virtues of Manhood at school.

Our 7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfasts are for elementary grade boys (1-6) and their adult hosts.

Because of the nature of this breakfast, each boy must have an adult host in order to attend. If one adult is going to be hosting multiple boys, please enter them as part of the group registration, even if that person has already registered with another boy. For families with special circumstances, please reach out to me and one of the school based mentors will host your son, or we can discuss another option.

Dear Parents,

With the start of school right around the corner, I wanted to share some exciting news regarding food service for the 2019–2020 school year.

This year, all food will be cooked on campus with the freshest of ingredients. Overseeing the menu planning will be Rachel Berry. Rachel has a strong nutrition background and knows how to plan delicious meals that boys love. Each lunch will include an entree paired with a fruit or vegetable. Other options will consist of fresh fruit, raw vegetables, salads, and turkey and ham sandwiches. Our goal is to create meals that will have our boys looking forward to lunch each day. Portions will be “boy-friendly,” and there will be plenty of food for everyone on the program. In addition, we will designate days for catered meals to be served from favorite local restaurants.

Our own Lyssa Fisackerly will be administering the lunch program. She will be our onsite manager and your first contact for anything related to lunch. You can reach Lyssa at lfisackerly@pdsmemphis.org or 901–842–4609.

Salads and turkey and ham sandwiches will also be available on a daily basis as well. Ice cream will be offered on Wednesdays and Fridays.
