This year families decided that they preferred having a direct-give style fundraiser. And it WORKED! 

Our amazing students raised a WHOPPING $17,104.97 (after expenses) which all stays with our PTSA to pay for the programs designed to support our awesome school, teachers, students, families, community and culture.  Way to go, Wildcats!

WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) is a K-12 program that makes it easy for fathers (or father figures) to spend meaningful time with their children in a school setting. 

Volunteers are asked to spend at least one day (or 2 half-days) at Lake Wilderness Elementary supporting students and being a positive male role model through: Monitoring school property, helping with bus duty and greeting students as they arrive, working one-on-one or in small groups, reading, assisting with assignments, lunch, refereeing games, listening ears, and other student related needs. WATCH DOGS can volunteer any day they are available during the school year.

If you're interested in being a Watch DOG or getting more information, email Robert  to get connected or sign up for a shift HERE

All WATCH DOGS must be cleared by the Tahoma School District. Fill out your volunteer application here!
