We need You!! Watch DOGS (Dad's of Great Students)

First of all would like to thank our Watch Dogs! We have had wonderful male role models join us on Fridays for lunch. This is a great way to bond with your son, daughter, grandchild, or special child in your like and also show the importance of school. If you have interest in being a Watch DOG, or have interest in coming in one of the available days, please sign up, if you haven't already done so this also requires a background check and following COVID protocols but we would love for more participants!



The schedule has a lot of slots after January. Here is the sign-up link.
