*More details about WatchDOGS:

Dads, grandpas, step-fathers, uncles and other men please join us on the evening of October 11th, from 6-7 p.m for an informational night about our new WatchDOGS program. We will provide the PIZZA!

WatchDOGS is a one-of-a-kind, school-based men involvement program that works to support education and safety. Who are WatchDOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other male role models who volunteer to serve at least one full day a year in a variety of school activities. The two main goals of this program are to provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important, and to provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.

We hope to see you this Tuesday, 6:00 PM in the gym!
