• Dads on Campus Support (DOCS)

     
      DOCS is Mariemont's own spin on a national program called,
     

    WATCH D.O.G.S.

     
    This is an innovative program of the National Center for Fathering focusing on prevention of violence in our nation's schools by using the positive influence of fathers and father-figures for a two-fold purpose:
     
    1) to provide an unobtrusive presence in the schools, and
    2) to be a positive and active role-model for students at their school.
     
    WATCH D.O.G.S. was founded by Jim Moore, a concerned father who chose to take action in response to a 1998 middle-school shooting in Jonesboro, AR. Joined with National Center for FAthering in 2006, WATCH D.O.G.S. serves to inspire and equip men to be involved fathers, grandfathers and father-figure their students need.
     

    Who are our DOCS?

    DOC is a way for Dad, Grandpa, Uncle etc. to volunteer and be involved at the school as a positive male role model during the school day. Without a doubt you will impact our kids, get to know what their day is like, meet some of their friends/peers and definitely learn some new playground games. Showing up for a lunh period and recess (or several if desired) is all that is required.
     
    If you already know you want to participate, you can get your fingerprinting completed through the school district now. There are forms in the Mariemont office and will also be available at the meeting. Fingerprints are free and are only required to be done once during your child's tenure at Mariemont. Once fingerprints clear, you will be able to sign up to be a DOC. Fingerprinting will also allow you to participate in any field trips your child will go on that you would like to chaperone.
