Save the date for the Florida Department of Education’s annual Dads Take Your Child to School Day – 9.25.2019!
All father figures are welcome including: stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, foster fathers and other significant male role models.
This initiative’s intent is to highlight the significant difference fathers and father figures can make by taking a more active role in their children’s educational experience. When fathers play a more active role in a child’s education, children perform better academically, have fewer discipline problems and become more responsible adults. We hope all fathers will take this opportunity to become more familiar with our school and staff, and that you will return often.
What about moms? Although the event is centered on fathers, mothers and other family members are also invited to participate. Moms are vital in the lives of their children and are often the parent who is more involved in their children’s education. Dads Take Your Child to School Day is an opportunity for us to shine the spotlight on dads and encourage men to get more involved.
