    We are wrapping up the second year of the Watch DOGS program at Liberty Elementary School.  The program has been a success, with thirty dads and granddads volunteering to spend the day at school as a Watch DOG.  The feedback from the Dads and Teachers has been extremely positive all year.  Thank you to those dads and granddads who volunteered, and we look forward to an even stronger program next year!  For those dads and granddads who have not yet participated, we urge you to volunteer one day next school year, as this experience will be extremely fulfilling to you and your student.  To learn more about the program, please visit the Liberty Elementary School website / Resources / Watch DOGS.

    If you plan to volunteer next school year, be it here on campus, on a field trip, or one of our away events, you must complete a background check during the summer to update your status and avoid having to worry about updating it during the school year.  You can do so via, under the parent resources tab.
