Calling all Dads, Step-Dads, and Male Guardians
Central Elementary School participates in the national program called Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students). This program encourages fathers and father-figures to join in the learning environment at the local school and be a positive role model to all students. This program has been paused for the last two and a half years but we are ready to re-engage in this great opportunity.
We would love to have volunteers for a full school day but half days are acceptable. Watch DOGS will follow a set schedule allowing them to volunteer in multiple classrooms and various settings all over the school. Of course, there will be time to spend with your own special student. You must complete a background check in person at least 5 days prior to your volunteer date. Please bring a picture ID.

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without an understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
