Bronx fathers participate in national ‘Dads Take Your Child to School Day’ event
Fathers across the borough bonded with their children today as they participated in the national 'Dads Take Your Child to School Day' event.
The goal of the event is for fathers and their children to spend time together.
The organizers of the event also want to encourage fathers to walk their children to school more often.
To celebrate, students at the Girls Prep Elementary Charter School had a light breakfast with their fathers and took pictures together. Many students' fathers say they bring their children to school on a regular basis, but they are happy to get a special day to shine.
