Dear Parents and Family Members of Diamond Valley Middle School -
We are calling for all dogs! Dads of Great Students that is! Soon, we will be implementing a new program here at DVMS, Watch D.O.G.S! WATCH D.O.G.S. is aK-12 program, involving fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day all day at their child’s school during the school year. The goal of Watch D.O.G.S is to provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important. Also, to provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.
If you are interested in getting involved with this program at DVMS, please email Mr. Silvaand he will get you all the details. Thank you.
