The event is part of a statewide initiative with the Florida Department of Education encouraging fathers and male role models to be involved in their child’s education. The initiative highlights the significant roles fathers and male role models have in enhancing students’ educational experiences and increasing student achievement. Research shows students perform better academically, have fewer discipline problems and become more responsible adults when fathers and male role models are actively involved in their education.
As part of Dads Take Your Child to School Day, fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, foster fathers and other male role models are invited to accompany their children to school, signifying that education is important to them and to their child’s future.
In addition, many schools are participating in special events and activities.
Media are invited to cover the following school celebration:
Broadview Elementary School – Dads Take Your Child to School Day Celebration
1800 SW 62nd Avenue
