WATCH OUT for WATCH D.O.G.S (Dads Of Great Students)

PHES is excited about WATCH D.O.G.S ., an educational initiative of the National Center for Fathering! Beginning this spring and continuing into the 2013-14 school year, expect to see more PHES Dads around and about the PHES campus. Thank you to Mr. Steven Murray, proud father of first grader “J.J.,” for coordinating this initiative at our school. Dads will volunteer one day during the school year to serve as “positive male role models ” for students, emphasizing the importance of education and being “extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security.” Mr. Murray (smurray341 at windstream dot net or phone number 843-twotwotwo-8121) will be recruiting dads interested in participating in kicking off a pilot program this
spring. He will be available class assignment day to answer questions and host an organizational meeting in the fall. Mrs. Broam will serve as the school contact for dads participating each day. PHES is thankful for dads, grandfathers, uncles and other father-figures who will be assisting in our school effort to create a safe learning environment, positively impacting student
“academic performance, self esteem, and social behavior.” Today, more than 2,811 active programs in 46 states participate in the WATCH D.O.G.S. Program. Check out this video to see the program in action: www.fathers.com/watchdogs or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpQPj4678us
