What does the PTO do for your school?
It is the PTO’s mission to provide activities that focus on strengthening the community of Perry-Worth by creating opportunities for staff and student, student and student and families to interact before, during and after school. The PTO does not sell items in order to fund various teachers, student and school needs. Instead, they will provide experiences for the staff, students and families to engage in what will enhance the community aspect of Perry-Worth while collecting the monies needed to provide the staff and students with expanded learning opportunities such as advanced technology, field trips, in classroom objects and learning programs.
You are the most important person in your child’s educational life. Being able to be involved in the PTO will benefit you and your child.
The PTO meetings are open to all who want to come and find out information of how they can be involved. If you need more information or would like to share an idea during a non-public meeting time, please contact a PTO board member.

What is Watch D.O.G.S.?
Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center For Fathering. There are two primary goals of the Watch D.O.G.S. program.
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. began in 1998 in a single school in Springdale, Arkansas and has since grown into a national recognized program that has brought hundreds of thousands of fathers and father figures into the school classrooms and hallways across the country, creating millions of hours of “in school” volunteer time and having a tremendously positive impact on the educational process. Today there are more than 5,707 registered Watch D.O.G.S. schools in 47 states plus DC. Currently, there are Watch D.O.G.S. programs in China, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Barbados, Italy, and Germany.
Who Are Watch D.O.G.S.?
Watch D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. school. During the day, WatchDOGS may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well. Many school principals have reported that the mere presence of a WatchDOG dramatically reduces reports of bullying. On the day of their participation, Watch D.O.G.S. are given a brief review of their involvement and they wear an official Watch D.O.G.S. t-shirt with a disposable ‘Dog Tag’ identifying them as Watch D.O.G.S.
How Watch D.O.G.S. Works
WATCH D.O.G.S., a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one full day at their child’s/student’s school during the school year. Individuals sign up at a ‘Launch Event’ such as a “Dads and Kids Pizza Night” or “Donuts with Dad” or in the office at any time throughout the school year. The program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer who partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for Watch D.O.G.S. to provide assistance at the school. WatchDOGS volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom with a teacher’s guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards, or spelling.
