THE BRONX - Bronx fathers jumped into action today at the Marc Academy in the Bronx.

The school hosted its third "Dads Take Your Child To School Day."

Organizers say the event encourages dads to be involved in their children's lives as often as they can.

"We are celebrating the Days Bring Your Child To School Day, which is a nationwide movement to get dads more involved in their child's life, education, emotional, social growth," says Anna York, executive director of Marc Academy.

The fathers walk their children to school and spend much of the morning together, eating breakfast and sitting next to each other in the classroom.
