Ronald McDonald House Pull Tab Collection
It’s time to turn in your beverage pull tabs to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Central Texas. Send them to school and place them in the plastic bottle located on the table outside of Mrs. Loftis’ classroom (room 409). The Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” for families of seriously ill children who are in the hospital. We will start collecting them until May 29th. The Green Paw Gardeners would like to say thank you for helping us with this project!
Popsicles in the Park & Kona Ice Events – COMBINED!!!
In last week’s Coyote Call we announced our Popsicles in the Park event where we invited parents to join us in the FC Park to get know more about what the PTA does and ways to get involved while the kiddos enjoyed a popsicle. With so much going on, we have decided to cancel that event and leverage the fundraiser with Kona Ice the following week.
So, please support FCE by purchasing a Kona Ice on the front lawn after school on Wednesday, May 23rd and the PTA will be there to answer any questions you may have! If you are unable to attend or have questions in the meantime, please send an email to Girlie Luna at firstname.lastname@example.org.

About the Program WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) – Engage men, inspire children, reduce bullying and enhance the educational environment at your school. WATCH D.O.G.S. is the father involvement initiative of the National Center for Fathering that organizes fathers and father figures in order to provide positive male role models for the students and to enhance school security. Today, more than 2,811 active programs in 46 states participate in the WATCH D.O.G.S. Program. WATCH D.O.G.S. was founded by Jim Moore, a concerned father who chose to take action in response to a 1998 middle-school shooting in Jonesboro, AR. Joined with the National Center for Fathering in 2006, WATCH D.O.G.S. serves to inspire and equip men to be the involved fathers, grandfathers and father-figures their students need. To find out more about this important program, click to visit the WATCH D.O.G.S.website Watch DOG t-shirt options To order a shirt, contact Chris Baca.
If you are ready to volunteer, just follow these steps:
1. Complete the RRISD online volunteer application. *** It takes about a week to get clearance, so plan accordingly! You will not be notified by the District once approval has been granted, but you may contact the school’s front office to verify everything is in order before coming.
2. To sign up for a date, go to the FCE sign up page. You will need to create an account for the site, but then you will be able to sign up for the date that you want.
FAQs: What time do I need to be at school?
Plan to arrive by 7:30 a.m. You will need to check in at the front office. We would LOVE to have you arrive before school starts so you can begin working with our students and see your WatchD.O.G. Dad video on the KI-O-T News broadcast.
How do I be on the KI-O-T News broadcast?
After you and your children check in at the front office, walk to the Science Lab (Room 404). Our broadcast team will create a short interview to be aired on the morning broadcast show. Please bring your child(ren) with you for the interview.
What type of schedule will I follow?
You will be given a schedule that is flexible and has been designed so that you can spend time with your child at different times of the day.
What about lunch?
The schedule is designed for you to assist in the cafeteria and also have lunch with your child. Adult lunches are $2.85. Cash and checks are accepted. Please keep in mind that you cannot use your child’s cafeteria account to purchase your lunch.
Can I volunteer more than one time?
Absolutely! In fact, we would love for you to volunteer more than once – it makes a difference in your child’s education.
What should I wear on the day I volunteer?
Please wear comfortable clothing. You will be helping out during recess and will also be doing lots of walking.
What are the Watch D.O.G.S. t-shirts?
These are t-shirts that the National Center for Fathering has designed for the use of the Watch D.O.G.S. program. They are the “uniform” that dads wear on the day they volunteer. Please note that you do not have to purchase a t-shirt to participate as a volunteer.
