PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- Calling all dads! Peekskill School District is encouraging all father-figures to take their child to school on Tuesday.
“Dads Take Your Child to School Day” is a statewide event that promotes father involvement by encouraging fathers and other important male figures to take their children to school. Program organizers believe that an active father helps the academic performance, cognitive development, and the health and well-being of children.
Those who participate are asked to accompany students into the building the morning of the event and learn more about how they can stay involved in their students' school life throughout the year.
