Bear Creek Elementary PTA

 

YES, I CAN VOLUNTEER FOR DAY  THIS SCHOOL YEAR!

 

Bear Creek Elementary PTA is excited to start two programs in the coming year for Fathers, Friends and Family of great Bear Creek students:

If you are a father, grandfather or male family member Bear Creek Elementary is excited to launch a family and community engagement program called WATCH D.O.G.S. ® (Dads Of Great Students) in Fall 2018. The WATCH D.O.G.S.® program is one of the largest and most respected family and community engagement initiatives in the country. Each year thousands of schools across the country utilize the WATCH D.O.G.S.® program to reach out to the fathers and father-figures of their students and invite those men to take at least one full day off work during the school year and spend that entire day volunteering in their child’s school. 

If you are a mother, grandmother or female family member the Bear Creek Elementary F.R.O.G.S. (friends and relatives of great students) is the program for you! The BCE F.R.O.G.S. program was created to offer a volunteering option for parents, family members and friends of Bear Creek students who want to be more involved but who are unable to volunteer on a more frequent basis. Our program's goal is to increase parent involvement and grow our school community by supporting and promoting the wellbeing of our students and their school! BCE F.R.O.G.S. invites mothers, family and friends of Bear Creek students to take at least one full day off work during the school year and spend that entire day volunteering in their child’s school.

 

             Our goal is to have at least one volunteer per week for the school year beginning the first week of October. Please use the link below to sign up for the week and day that works best with your schedule.
