On Tuesday, September 20, the Peekskill City School District joined other schools in Westchester County and across the nation in “Dads Take Your Child to School Day.” This is the third year that Peekskill has participated in the initiative, and it was the District’s most successful year ever. A total of 574 father figures, (which included dads, brothers, uncles, grandpas and even a few females), turned out to accompany their students to school. That’s approximately 170 more participants than last year’s campaign drew.
Mark your calendars: “Dads Take Your Child to School Day” is taking place in schools across Westchester County on Tuesday, September 20. To promote the importance of the day, County Executive Robert P. Astorino joined with Legislator John G. Testa, Peekskill Schools Superintendent Dr. David Fine, and over two dozen fathers, educators and advocates for a kickoff at Oakside Elementary School on Wednesday, Sept. 14.
