Watch D.O.G.S Launch Night

  • Fathers and Father-figures, On Friday, September 30 from 5:30 – 6:30 pm we will be having our 2nd annual ‘Dads and Kids’ Pizza Night at our school. You will meet here at the school cafeteria at 5:30 pm for FREE pizza and drinks. At 6:00 we will have a presentation about our WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) Program. WATCH D.O.G.S.® is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.
