Watch Dogs


Watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students) are dads, grandfathers, brothers, neighbors, friends, and male role models of students here at Chisholm Trail Middle School.  Each one has volunteered to spend at least one day this year being a role model here at school.  They may read with students, help those who need a little extra time in the classroom, and even have an opportunity to eat lunch with their own child while getting to know their friends!
