Watch D.O.G.S. is a program that helps bring dads and other male role models to the school to serve as support and added security before, during, and after school.  Watch Dog Dads spend time at school helping in various ways such as hallway monitors, library assistants, lunchroom helpers, classroom and homework tutors, and playground coaches. We had our Watch DOGS kick off on September 4th!  The program serves two purposes: to provide positive male role models and enhance school security.  We are asking dads, grandpas, uncles, etc. to volunteer an hour a week or whatever is possible.  If interested please contact Mrs. Murry for a registration form and a volunteer form which includes a background check.

For our Word of the Day program, students are encouraged to write a sentence using the word of the day and drop it in their grade level bucket in the front hallway each morning for a chance to have their sentence read during announcements and receive a token for the treasure tower! Word of the Day Calendars are given to the students to keep.  *Don't forget to write your first and last name with your sentence!  Click on the image or month to view the WOD calendars!
