Dads Take Your Kids to School Day, September 25, 2019
Don Estridge Middle School & PTSA has planned a Donut with Dudes event in the Media Center in honor of this special day.
- 8:00am - 8:30am for all our 7th and 8th graders
- 8:45am - 9:15am for our 6th graders.
The School District of Palm Beach County, in collaboration with the Florida Department of Education, is recognizing Wednesday, September 25 as Dads Take Your Child to School Day.
Schools throughout the District encourage fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, foster fathers, and any other male role model to participate by taking their child to school. This is a great way for fathers and father figures to engage with their children and strengthen the connection between fathers, children, and schools.
You don’t have to be a dad to have a positive influence on a child’s life. Research shows that having a father or active male role model increases a child’s self-esteem and academic success. When fathers and other male role models are actively involved, students have fewer disciplinary problems and become more responsible adults.
When you take your child to school on September 25, share your pictures with the District on Twitter, using the hashtag #FLDADSATSCHOOL. Visit the Florida Department of Education website for additional information and resources.
