CANARSIE - Hand in hand, kids walked into P.S. 276 today with special escorts -- their dads!

Dads joined their kids in class as part of Dads Take Your Child to School Day, a statewide initiative to get fathers involved in their children's lives.  Organizers say statistics show that involved dads help the kids go on to be successful both in school and once they graduate. 

P.S. 276 participated for the fourth year in a row, giving crowns to all of the kids and parents.

While the event is slated for fathers, any parent is welcome.
