Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Julia MurrayrWe have just completed our first month of the 2016-17 school year having Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) at Art City Elementary School in Springville. Thank you dads for coming to the school to be a positive fatherly influence.rHaving Watch D.O.G.S. in our school helps in the following ways: they provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important, and they provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying. Watch D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles and other father figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at Art City Elementary School.rThe program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer, Amber Park, who partners with Principal  Lisa Muirbrook to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for Watch D.O.G.S. to provide assistance at the school. Watch D.O.G.S. dads and volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room and helping in the classroom with a teacher’s guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards or spelling.

If you would like to sign up to be part of Watch D.O.G.S., email Amber Park at amber.park@nebo.edu to find a date to sign up.
