Watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students)

The goals of a WATCH D.O.G.S. program are:

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.

Who are WATCH D.O.G.S. and how does WATCH D.O.G.S. work?

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.
