“Ignite Achievement Academy at the historic Elder Diggs School

(IAA) and The Bridge Leadership Foundation (BLF) are hosting a “Breakfast with Dads” event for

local elementary school students from the Ignite Achievement Academy. This event invites fathers,

father figures, and role models to the Ignite Achievement Academy to celebrate and support students

preparing to take the I-STEP+ test. This event is scheduled to take place on April 13, 2018 from 8am to

9:30am. The second of its kind, this community event is modeled in partnership with the “Breakfast

with Dads” event at Billy Earl Dade Middle School in Dallas, Texas, which took place on December

14th 2017, where 600 men, fathers, and father figures, volunteered to celebrate students and their

achievement. One of the pillars of IAA school community is “Ubuntu,” a Nguni Bantu term meaning

“Humanity” and is often translated “I am because we are.” The motto of BLF is “Bridging the gap

between your present and your destiny.” Both of these statements capture the heartbeat of this event

and its intentional focus.

Please plan to join us on April 13, 2018 at the Ignite Achievement Academy at the historic Elder Diggs

School located at 1002W. 25th St. Indianapolis, IN 46208 for our Breakfast with Dads Community

Support Event. Our special guest list includes a number of influential stakeholders who will be in

attendance to support and celebrate our students.

Ignite Achievement Academy and The Bridge Leadership Foundation each share a philosophy captured

well by the words of Henry B. Adams- “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence

stops.” The scholars of the Diggs community have worked extremely hard this year. We hope you will

help us make a difference in the lives of these very deserving elementary school students.”
