WATCH D.O.G.S. is a national organization that started in 1998 and it is used by over 6,000 schools nationwide. D.O.G.S. stands for Dads Of Great Students. Each school year, fathers and father figures are invited to volunteer at GPS. Among many things, Watch D.O.G.S. visit classrooms, help monitor during recess, eat lunch with students, and listen to students read. It is a great opportunity to have a positive impact.
MAMA Bears is a GPS program for GPS moms to volunteer time at school. This time can be spent reading with students, assisting students with skills practice, and assisting teachers in various tasks throughout the day.
Please remember that all volunteer opportunities will require a filled out volunteer packet and background check in order to be approved.
