Watch D.O.G.S.


If you are a father, grandfather, uncle—or other type of father figure — set aside one day each year to attend school with your kids. Not only will your presence absolutely delight your children, it increases security, reduces bullying, and sends a strong message that education is important to every kid at Shawnee Trail!


Not bad for a day's work, eh?

Here's what you need to do: 

Request an FISD Background Check 
This process takes 3-5 days, so do it now.
Select a date to serve
You MUST sign up at least 2 days earlier than the date you plan to serve
