THE BRONX - An all-boys school recruited fathers, uncles, grandfathers and other male role models to welcome back students Wednesday ahead of the upcoming school year.

It marked the second year in which Boys Prep Bronx Elementary School held the event.

Organizers say the program gives students a glimpse of what their potentially bright futures may bring.

Some of the fathers tell News 12 that the experience was just as rewarding for them as the kids. One says it shows a large support system in the community.
