Abbett is proud to partner with our PTA to bring the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program to Abbett. Through this program, dads or other father figures serve as positive male role models for students by volunteering to spend a day or half day at school helping out around the building and building positive connections with kids.
