Be a WatchDOG!

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, 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.

PTA Volunteers are such a big part of PTA and are key to a successful event. If you were not a volunteer or PTA member last year, we hope you will consider it this year. This is a great way to support your child and their school. Our commitment as a PTA is to provide an environment where every child can recognize their full potential. If you would like more information about Dorsey PTA or volunteering this school year, please send an email to the PTA mailbox at NormaDorseyPTA@gmail.com

Teachers need you! Help with maintaining bulletin boards or cutting out laminating. Check with your student's teacher to find out what they may need.

Study trips are great for our students, but they require help from parents. Chaperones are needed to ensure student safety. (And they are a lot of fun!)
