Dads Take Pledge

Gaines Academy had a wonderful turnout for their Dads Take your Child to School Day. After a welcome from administration, the SGA Chorus sang and the Student Council president, Lopez Bourjolly, spoke about the importance of making memories with your child. As the students and their caring adult, ate a light breakfast, they enjoyed a reading activity and signed the Pledge for Fathers and Men.
