Watch D.O.G.S. Heroes of the Hallways
- By James "Chip" Moore
League academy first middle school to implement program
In 1998 on March 24, two boys met up in the woods outside their school in Jonesboro, Arkansas, after one pulled the fire alarm. Armed with thirteen fully loaded firearms, Mitchell Johnson, 13, and Andrew Golden, 11, opened fire on their classmates as they exited the building 100 yards away, killing five. Across the state in Springdale, Arkansas, two men feeling the impact of such a horrific event were compelled to do something to ensure that schools remain the safest place for children to be.
With the help of his friend, Jim Moore, founder of watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students), started making steps in creating a volunteer program for dads to become more involved in day-to-day activities in the school. Watch D.O.G.S., a father-engagement and educational initiative of the National Center for Fathering, was designed to encourage fathers and father figures to be more involved in the educational process. The goals of the program are to enhance school safety and provide positive male role models.

Holiday Pampering For Man’s Best Friend
- By Tammy Johnston
This past Saturday, Animal Care sponsored a fun-filled holiday event for God’s precious animals and their loving owners.
The event had toys, bowls and homemade dog treats that the owners could buy as stocking stuffers for their furry friends for Christmas.
The highlight of the event was the picture with Santa. Dogs came dressed in their favorite holiday fashions from red velvet outfits to bows and ribbons; each animal was ready to sit on Santa’s lap. After getting their picture taken, their owners could sit at the craft table and create a picture frame as a gift to give to a loved one of their animal sitting with Santa.
