BROOKLYN - Hundreds of students of all ages marched to school Tuesday morning with a special escort: their dads!
Many Brooklyn fathers participating in Dads Take Your Child to School Day walked as a group to M.S. 265 in Fort Greene where Chancellor Dennis Walcott commended them for getting involved.
Players from the Brooklyn Nets also showed up to support the stand-up dads, and handed out backpacks to students.
