ENGLEWOOD — At the recent Northmont Board of Education meeting Ryan Pullins was named as the Board of Education Student Representative for 2017-18.
The Student Rep is an elected position by students. Northmont was one of the first school boards to add a student representative many years ago and the rep is an actual voting member of the board. His responsibilities will include reporting activities taking place in all of the school buildings throughout the district.
Superintendent Thomas presented the Superintendent’s Helping Hands award to Todd Long. Todd was nominated by Englewood Elementary Principal Joe Johnston for helping in every capacity he can. As PTO president and Watch D.O.G., Todd is there for every fund-raiser and event that the school has ever had.
“He made me eat dog food (as part of a fund-raiser),” said Johnston.
WATCH D.O.G.S. is one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country. Since the program’s creation in 1998, more than 6,450 schools across 47 states and 7 countries have launched a WATCH D.O.G.S. program of their own. Each school year hundreds of thousands of fathers and father-figures make a positive impact on millions of children by volunteering millions of hours in their local schools through this amazing one-of-a-kind program.
Who are WatchDOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator.
