There is a new program that is giving dads a chance to help kids in the classroom with a little extra encouragement.
They’re called Watch D.O.G.S. You could catch these father figures walking the hallways of Royal Palm Beach Elementary School at any time during the school day.
Dads, stepdads, uncles and grandfathers are all welcome. The Watch D.O.G.S., or Dads of Great Students, volunteer at least one day a year.
Bill Thallemer is a volunteer and says “We’re reading in classes, helping the media center, help with traffic in the morning, we help with the cafeteria.”
