Some on-the-job training

Connor Carlisle, 10, a fourth-grader at Lakeview Fundamental Elementary School, spends time with his father, Reid Carlisle, during the monthly All Pro Dad breakfast at the St. Petersburg school. “This gives us time to spend together in our busy lives,” said Reid Carlisle, who said they spend time together in Scouting as well. Last month’s breakfast included information about healthy eating for children. This month’s breakfast will include a canine demonstration by the St. Petersburg Police Department. All Pro Dad is a program of Family First, a national nonprofit organization based in Tampa, founded by former pro football player Mark Merrill and former NFL coach Tony Dungy. Its goal is to give men the resources and encouragement they need to become better fathers.
