Dads Take Your Child to School Day is a statewide initiative of the Florida Department of Education to encourage fathers and male role models to become involved in the education of their children as a means for increasing student achievement.  Fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, foster fathers and other male role models are invited to take their children to school on September 26.

When: Wednesday, September 26, 2018.


Where:  The movement takes place on SLPS campuses.


Why: The Dads Take Your Child to School Day event is designed to highlight the significant role a child’s father or male role models can have in enhancing a child’s educational experience.
