Calling all Dads, today is a special day! "Dads Take Your Child To School Day" was started back in 2004 in an effort to increase interaction with Dads and students at their school.

In the past 14 years, thousands of Dads have taken the time to walk or drive their child to school on this day and help create a deeper connection with them!

Several Buffalo and Niagara Falls area schools are participating in the event this year.

Some schools are even offering door prizes for the dads who come into the school!

According to the website, "Children with a positive relationship with their father are 32 percent less likely to smoke, drink or use drugs."
