Ella Baker Elementary PTSA




Ella Baker Dads,

Are you interested in being a part of the amazing learning that is happening at Ella Baker Elementary? We invite you to become an Ella Baker WATCH D.O.G.S.! 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 WatchDOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, coaches, and other men who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities.

Join us for Dads, Dudes, and Donuts - our kick-off informational event on March 12th at 8:50am in the Ella Baker Commons. Bring your child and enjoy a donut together while learning more about what to expect as a WatchDOG and how to sign-up.

If you are ready to sign-up today, you can do that here. http://signup.com/go/gkQGnUg Those who signed up at Shine the Light last week, I would appreciate you taking a few minutes to fill out the online sign-up to confirm your preferred date.
