We have just completed our first month, of the 2016-17 School year, having Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) at Art City Elementary School.  Thank you Dads for coming to the school to be a positive Fatherly influence.   Having Watch D.O.G.S. in our school helps in the following ways:  1) To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.  2) To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.  Watch D.O.G.S.
