Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Bay Park Elementary Dad’s group, DOGS (Dads of Great Students).

DOGS is a support team for the Bay Park Elementary PTA and no actual dogs are required or involved… haha.

There are quite a few Dad’s interested in taking part in the DOGS for the rest of this 21/22 school year and we’re talking to you. Although DOGS was started so late this year, we’re also recruiting DOGS now for the 22/23 school year.

DOGS-Sign-up

What is DOGS group all about? The DOGS are invited to complete tasks for the Bay Park Elementary PTA. Some examples of tasks are:

  • Help out for Movie Night on May 13

  • Fixing tables/benches

  • Playground projects

  • Helping with the Halloween Carnival

  • Setting up the Haunted Hallway

  • Install Drip Irrigation in Planter Boxes

  • and So Much More.

In the past the DOGS have also been a social group that met up at local breweries, batting cages, or the back nine to hang out and meet other dads.

FYI – I don’t believe it’s mandatory to join BPE PTA, although the link below can take you to the Totem website which manages our BPE PTA membership. It’s only $21 and once a member you can take part in activities, committees, association meetings, etc. And the membership fee goes into our general annual budget. https://jointotem.com/ca/san-diego/bay-park-elementary-pta

I look forward to meeting each of you guys.

Sincerely,
