National Fathers Take Your Children to School Day is a Success

Houston, Texas: On Tuesday, September 20, thousands of Galena Park ISD dads participated in National Fathers Take Your Children to School Day. All of the GPISD’s schools treated dads to breakfast, a brief presentation and an opportunity to walk their child to their classroom.

While taking their children to school, the dads and their children got the opportunity to enjoy breakfast together and talk with other dads and children. During breakfast, a brief presentation was given by school principals on ways they can volunteer at school events or be a chaperone on upcoming field trips.  The fathers were also encouraged to take their children to school at least once a month.

National Fathers Take Your Children to School Day was established to encourage fathers to take a more active role in their children’s lives and introduce them to their children’s school community.

GPISD would like to thank all the dads who participated in National Fathers Take Your Children to School Day.
