Richmond County School System Dads on Duty

Deer Chase Elementary School recently hosted their third annual Dads on Duty event. About 100 dads, grandparents, uncles, and community leaders participated in this Title 1 literacy initiative. As the event began, the men lined the entrance to the school and greeted incoming students with high-fives. They were then given the opportunity to read aloud to students from different grade levels. Based on the smiling faces, all participants and students benefited from this reading and parental involvement program.
