Gandy Elementary is excited to have implemented the Watch DOGS (Dads of Great Students) Program on its campus. The first DOGS guest was Steve Hood, dad to Lilly Hood, a third grader in Mrs. Ellis’ classroom. Mr. Hood spent the day reading to classes, participating with students during PE, hanging out on the playground during recess, giving high fives, patrolling the hallways, etc.
“The students absolutely loved having a Dad on campus. Gandy eagerly awaits the next Dad ‘guest,’” a school spokesman said. Pictured, Mr. Hood reads a Halloween favorite “Room on the Broom” to Mrs. Benton’s fourth-grade class.
