Parents, save the date! Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) recently announced it will observe “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day” on Friday, Feb. 1.
The District uses this date instead of the national observance on Apr. 25 to minimalize disruptions during scheduled testing.
Designed to be more than a career day, the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day program goes beyond the average “shadow” an adult experience. Exposing girls and boys, ages 8-18, to what a parent, mentor or guardian does during the work day is important, but showing them the value of their education, helping them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life does more.
