Watch D.O.G.S..mp4

WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center For Fathering. There are two primary goals of the WATCH D.O.G.S. program.

1) To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.

2) To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.

WATCH D.O.G.S. began in 1998 in a single school in Springdale, Arkansas. It has grown into a nationally recognized program that has brought hundreds of thousands of fathers and father figures into the school classrooms and hallways across the country, creating a positive impact on the educational process. 

Who Are Watch D.O.G.S.?

Watch D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other  father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. school. During the day, Watch D.O.G.S. may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well. Many school principals have reported that the mere presence of a Watch D.O.G. dramatically reduces           reports of bullying.

Super M.O.M.S. (Moms of Magnificent Students) is a volunteer program that started at Disney Elementary September 1, 2016. There are two primary goals of the Super M.O.M.S. program.

1) To provide positive female role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.

2) To provide extra academic support to classroom teachers.

Who are Super M.O.M.S.?

Moms are mothers, step-mothers, grandmas, and aunts.  Mom figures that are not relatives will follow the volunteer procedures for Millard Public Schools which requires background checks.  An application is required with a few weeks of processing time.

What do Super M.O.M.S. do?

The academic focus will be working with students on academics, extra reading/math practice, independent academic practice in the classroom during workstations, reading aloud, and providing extra hands working with skills and activities.

Super M.O.M.S. may also spend lunch and recess with students to promote uplifting conversations and play while being a positive influence.

Volunteers will visit their child’s classrooms along with other classes in the building.
