We can't thank you enough for driving the great initial success of our WatchD.O.G.S. program here at Mountain Vista. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from our students, dads, and teachers that have been fortunate to interact with the amazing volunteer fathers (or father-figures) that have spent a day (or multiple days!) with us as we have rolled out the WatchD.O.G.S. program over the last couple of months.
For anyone unfamiliar with the program, our MVE WatchD.O.G.S. join us for the day as volunteers. We create a custom schedule for each father, with the goal to have them able to spend some time in their student(s) classroom(s), out on the playground, in the lunchroom, and in other classrooms around the school. Each room might look different, but dads will spend the day playing games on the playground, assisting with math problems, reading books, engaging in scientific inquiry, or simply giving students high fives in the hallway. Each dad is provided with a MVE WatchD.O.G.S. vest and schedule upon arrival and then will spend the rest of the day engaging with students around the school. Fathers will also have their pictures taken with students and posted to our WatchD.O.G.S. Hall of Fame in the front hallway of the school!
We look forward to the continued success of the program with the support of our amazing MVE dads! For the second half of the 18/19 school year, we have elected to use an online sign up form (linked below). The link will also be posted on our school webpage inside of the WatchD.O.G.S. tab.
