Watch D.O.G. Program at Tarkio Elementary- The WATCH D.O.G. program – At Tarkio Elementary School started back up this week. WATCH D.O.G.S. stands for Dads Of Great Students. The program invites fathers (or father figures such as grandfathers, uncles, and others) to volunteer one day during the school year to provide positive male role models for the students. Their presence helps reduce bullying, enhances security, and shows the importance of education to the students. WatchDOG volunteers assist with a variety of tasks during their day including monitoring the school entrance, unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom with a teacher’s guidance. For questions about the WATCH D.O.G. program, contact Jennifer Peregrine at 660-736-4177 or at perjen@tarkio.k12.mo.us. Pictured is Jason Liechti with his children, Hadyn, Jaxon, Gavyn, and Liam.
