Who We Are
From the official Watch D.O.G.S. site:
WATCH D.O.G.S. is one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country. Since the program’s creation in 1998, more than 6,450 schools across the country have launched a WATCH D.O.G.S. program of their own. Each school year hundreds of thousands of fathers and father-figures make a positive impact on millions of children by volunteering millions of hours in their local schools through this amazing one-of-a-kind program.
Who Are We
Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve by spending a day at Adkins and/or volunteering at school- and PTA-sponsored events.
Joining the Adkins PTA is a simple way to show your support. It doesn’t mean more volunteer hours or even more emails! But it does add to the strength of our local PTA, the State PTA and National PTA – which makes a difference in the lives of our children and children across the country. It’s quick and simple – join here.
