More than 40 dads attended the first meeting of the year for FCA Watch D.O.G.S.

A safe and thriving educational environment requires the cooperation of many people. At Fort Caspar Academy, staff and leadership rely on the strength of a group of “Watch D.O.G.S.” to help in the classrooms and hallways. “Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students)” is a parent-run organization that has been in existence at FCA since spring of 2012.

At its first meeting of the year, over forty dads attended a pizza social and kick-off event, hosted by FCA Governing Council, on September 9th.  FCA Watch D.O.G.S. parent Steve Mogen told attendees there is a need for parents, especially dads, to volunteer in the school. Following the brief meeting, the dads in attendance were eager to sign up for volunteer opportunities at FCA.
