WatchDOGs - Update
Starting November 17th, dads, grandfathers, uncles or any other father-figure is welcome to volunteer to spend a day at PRES as a Watch D.O.G.S. volunteer.  A Watch D.O.G.S. volunteer will commit to spending one day at school with his child/children.  During the day, a Watch D.O.G.S. volunteer may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well. You will spend part of the day with your child(ren) and part of the day in other areas of the school.
The sign up is now open for any father, grandfather, uncle or any father-figure to participate in the Watch D.O.G.S. program. Don't wait to sign up! Last year, volunteer spots filled up quickly. When signing up, please sign up for only ONE spot in order to allow everyone the chance to participate in this wonderful program.  If you want to volunteer on Friday, November 17, please complete the sign-up genius form by Wednesday, November 8. Sign up here:
