Wednesday, Sept. 28 was “Dads Take Your Child to School Day.” Wellington Elementary School was proud to be one of the state’s schools participating in this initiative. The purpose of this special day is to encourage fathers, stepfathers, uncles and other male role models who play the role of a father to bring their children to school, because it has been proven that parental involvement in a child’s education plays a crucial role in the child’s success in school.
Approximately, 300 male role models and their children arrived at the school with smiles on their faces and enjoyed breakfast and beverages.
