Meadow Hill Welcomes Fathers to “Dads Take Your Child to School Day”


Children need positive role models to help them successfully navigate through each day.  When fathers play active roles alongside mothers, children tend to be more confident, earn better grades and exhibit healthier behavior.  The continuum of research, policy development and program implementation related to family involvement supports emphasis on engaging fathers as a means of increasing student achievement. More than 30 years of research findings maintains the belief that a positive relationship exists between increased family engagement and student academic success.   “Dads Take Your Child to School Day” is a statewide initiative designed to spotlight the importance of parental involvement in a child’s education.  On October 24, 2017 Meadow Hill was proud to welcome close to 500 fathers and father figures who joined this initiative. This total included almost 100 more participants than the previous year.  Throughout the morning fathers and their children engaged in various classroom learning activities which included students demonstrating to their fathers how they use the building’s new Promethean boards during instruction as well as a Thinking Map workshop which helped familiarize parents with the fundamentals of constructing Thinking Maps. Parents were able to see first-hand the benefits of using Thinking maps to improving critical thinking skills by engaging in these learning experiences with their children.  The morning was culminated with physical fitness activities and a healthy breakfast for all.
