Dads Take Your Child to School Day scheduled for Wednesday, September 27

WEST PALM BEACH — The School District of Palm Beach County, in collaboration with the Florida Department of Education, is recognizing Wednesday, September 27, (before the start of school) as “Dads Take Your Child to School Day.”

Fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles and father figures are encouraged to take their child to school to make a positive influence and show support for the importance of education.

Research shows that having a father or active male role model increases a child’s self esteem and academic success, however, the event is not limited to male role models. Mothers or female role models may also participate.

Schools will be hosting a variety of activities during arrival. Please contact news@palmbeachschools.org for what is planned for a specific school or area.
