Dads Take Your Child to School (DTYCTS), a special day to celebrate and encourage the involvement of fathers and other significant male caregivers in the lives of their children-starting with a trip to school. Please take your child to school on Tuesday, September 19th arriving between 9:10-9:35 to enjoy some breakfast foods and engaging conversation with your child in the Media Center. DTYCTS is rooted in the mission of promoting father involvement in educational settings. Studies point to children benefiting when their fathers have an active role in their children’s lives. Positive paternal involvement is associated with improvements in academic performance, cognitive development, behavior, psychosocial development, health and well-being, household economics and overall parenting quality.
