    RATIONALE: Irrefutable research indicates when a positive male role model is not present in the life of a child there is a void in this area.  Studies have shown that the involvement of a father or a positive male role model in the lives of children has profound effects on them. Father-child interaction promotes a child’s physical well being, perceptual ability and competency for relating to others. These children also demonstrate a greater ability to take initiative and evidence self-control (firstthingsfirst.org).

    Rock Spring Elementary School is calling upon the assistance and services of all positive male models not limited to but to include Dads, Grandfathers, Uncles, etc. to volunteer a full or half school day.
