Roseboro Elementary School, where “Tomorrow’s Success Begins Today,” participated in the 2014 Million Father March during the first day of school Monday.


Fathers and father figures were challenged to be more involved in their children’s education by volunteering at school functions, attending scheduled conferences, and reading with their children.


Research shows that children whose fathers take active roles in their educational lives earn better grades, score higher on tests, enjoy school more, are more likely to graduate from high school and to attend college.


Approximately 700 cities and 1,100,000 men are expected to participate nationwide this year in the Million Father March. Working together will ensure that RES students receive the foundation to be successful, school officials said.
