The M.O.D. (Men of Distinction) Squad is a mentor group for male students that is comprised mostly of 4th and 5th graders. The purpose of or organization is to provide guidance and support to our students as they transition into young men. This is done with a multi-faceted approach:
- Students are introduced to a variety of guest speakers from varied occupational backgrounds. Some of these include judges, chefs, educators, engineers, law enforcement, military service members, hygiene and grooming experts, and medical personal.
- Members perform community service projects. We believe that it is invaluable for our students to recognize the importance of civic responsibility.
- Finally, we teach our students life skills. These include learning how to iron, sewing, problem solving, and enviable social skills.
