  • On this day, a "father" is any positive male role model in a child's life: a grandfather, cousin, uncle, older sibling, community leader, mentor, minister, etc. In support of students and families, our aim is to cultivate a culture of excellence through academic enrichment and mentorship.
  • All District schools will open their doors on Friday, May 19th to welcome thousands of Pittsburgh fathers to spend the day with their student(s) participating in various activities planned at each school.
