Programs at three Maize elementary schools feature fathers' involvement

Three Maize USD 266 elementary schools have implemented initiatives to involve fathers and male role models.

Maize Central Elementary School has a program called All Pro Dads. Vermillion and Pray-Woodman elementary schools use the Watch DOGS (Dads of Great Students) program, which this year will engage more than 100 men to help with school security, learning, and positive student relationships. Volunteers spend a day or more at school helping with everything from the carpool lane to small groups and one-on-one instruction.

Vermillion Principal Michael Dome said research shows students achieve their fullest potential when both parents are engaged in their education.

Thank you to all of our volunteers!
