Borough-Wide: Dads Take Your Child to School Day

Dads Take Your Child to School Day is an initiative to encourage father involvement in schools and in their child’s education.

Fathers┬áplay an important role in their child’s education. Father involvement in schools is associated with improvements by students in academics, behavior and social skills. Academically, students receive more A’s, stay in school and enjoy learning more.
