We want to congratulate all the fathers and male role models who participated in the Dads Take Your Child to School Day! It is our hope that you will continue to show your support for your child's education by attending important events like Open House and Parent-Teacher Conference Day. You might also consider joining the PTA or checking out the WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program available at many schools. If your school doesn't have a WATCH D.O.G.S. program, consider partnering with other fathers to start one (http://www.fathers.com/watchdogs/). Also, www.fathers.com has a many great resources for dads.
