Dad Take your Child to School Day

On September 20th some of our families visited our intermediate school at the Parsons Educational Center (PEC) to celebrate with their children our yearly event “Dad Take your Child to School Day” . It was a great moment to celebrate fathers’ involvement at school!. They visited their children during an APE session and learned about the physical education routines that the children are practicing at school.  At the end, they shared a snack with their children. 2016-dtcsd
