JA PTO to Launch WATCH D.O.G.S. Program

After recommendation and consideration from a both an interested parent and administration, JA PTO has approved funding that will bring WATCH D.O.G.S, one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country, to Jefferson Academy Elementary. 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 WatchDOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator. The program will kick-off in January 2020 with a pizza party. Interested individuals are encouraged to reach out to program chair, Gary Larson.
