If you are a father, grandfather, uncle—or other type of father figure — set aside one day each year to attend school with your kids. Not only will your presence absolutely delight your children, it increases security, reduces bullying, and sends a strong message that education is important to every kid at Shawnee Trail!
Not bad for a day's work, eh?
The presence of men at school makes a powerful impression on kids. Watch D.O.G.S. (Dad's of Great Students) leverages that power to great advantage!
To volunteer as a 2018-19 Watch DOG:
Sign up for a day you would like to serve, request a background check (Request a Background Check*) and join this year's PTA as a member.
*Must be done 1 time per school year through FISD
