Chick-fil-A chicken biscuit handouts are one of those days that the students inquire about throughout the year and look forward to when the days arrive. Teachers and Administrators say that the mood in the school is noticeably different and the students seem to be more attentive; better learners and score better on their tests.
We also know that Finals can be daunting, overwhelming, create stress, anxiety and more.
The Olathe East Father’s Club wanted to do our part to reduce those feelings by starting the morning off on a positive note and help create the right environment for test taking by doing our Feast B4 Finals chicken biscuit handout. Not only do the students get greeted with a chicken biscuit, but also with encouraging words and fist bumps.
A Visible Reaction
There is something special about seeing the eyes and posture of a student change to joy when they see large groups of dads; receive fist pumps; hear encouraging words for the day AND receive a little something special to eat.
As a dad, I can tell you it is one of the best days of the year and is something I would encourage every parent to ask their kids about. I challenge all dads to be intentional about finding time to join us for one of these events and experience it for yourself.
Thanks to Chick-fil-A Olathe for their partnership and thanks to all the dads that continue to show up and make these events so successful.
