We are looking forward to having you back this year!

To get started, we need you to do 3 simple things.

  1.  Complete a new background check for the 2017-18 school year.  I apologize for asking you to do this again, however it is a mandatory and necessary process.
  2. We're using VolunteerSpot (the leading online Sign-up and reminder tool) to organize our upcoming Sign-ups.
    Here's how it works in 3 easy steps:

    1) Click this link to see our Sign-Up on VolunteerSpot:

    2) Review the options listed and choose the spot(s) you like.

    3) Sign up! It's Easy - you will NOT need to register an account or keep a password on VolunteerSpot.

    Note: VolunteerSpot does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use your email address, please contact me and I can sign you up manually.

  3. We are highly encouraging all DOGS to purchase a shirt this year.  This will allow students, staff, and other parents to recognize you as a member of our team.  Please visit to order your shirt and other WatchDOGS items.  We ask that you wear your DOGS shirt to any school event you attend.
  4. Spread the word!  There are two ways that most DOGS find out about this awesome experience.
    1. Their child came home and begged their dad to be a WatchDOG.
    2. They heard about it from a buddy (almost like an ice-bucket challenge).

We are improving the WatchDOGS program this year by asking our DOGS to be involved in other ways.  The school and PTA will host events and we will have signups on VolunteerSpot for you to help out in various ways.  Every student will receive a WatchDOGS spirit stick the day their dad serves ​

Thank you again for your service and dedication to our school!
