Pooler Elementary School has started an All PRO DAD program that’s proving very popular. Organizers say monthly meetings are packed and keeping students excited about dads, grandads, uncles, and mentors visiting their school!
All Pro Dad is a program started by former NFL Coach Tony Dungy and the organization Family First. The purpose of the program is to get dads more involved in the lives’ of their children.
Pooler’s All PRO DAD’s group meets the last Friday of every month at 7:30 am in the school’s gym. Breakfast is served to students and their dads before a short video or activity, a conversation-starting activity, and then a raffle for prizes. Those involved say Dads are engaged, which leads to kids learning better and behaving better.
Pooler’s PTA helped get the program started by investing in the curriculum which cost around $100. Pooler’s PE Teacher/Coach leads the meetings. It will be held- Friday, September 30, 2016 – 7:30am at Pooler Elementary School, 308 Holly Ave., Pooler
