FATHERS IN EDUCTATION DAY, MAY 11, 2017

Fathers In Education Day.

A partnership with M-DCPS Office of Community Engagement

Fathers in Education Day, May 11, 2017 was designed to increase father involvement in schools throughout Miami-Dade County by giving fathers more opportunities to influence children’s learning by being present in their schools to read, tell stories, share activities and interests. Children’s perception of fathers, male role models and men was affected positively when they saw them take the time to come to their schools and actively engage with them. Fathers in Education Day was meant to reinforce summer reading, summer connections between fathers and their children.
