Dads of Great Students

Volunteer to be one of the WatchD.O.G.S. at our school! It's just a 5-Step process.

Step 1) Complete the RRISD Volunteer Application. Applications must be renewed each school year. You will not be notified unless there is a problem with your application. Volunteer verification/approval process takes 3 to 4 days. You will NOT be allowed to volunteer on campus unless approval has been processed. Please plan to apply well in advance.

Step 2) Complete the WatchDOGS form to request your volunteer date. Allow 3 to 4 days advance notice, prior to volunteer date. Click here to request a date to be a WatchDOG on Campus.


Step 3) Order official Watch DOGS uniform. If you do not have a Watch DOGS uniform, Great Oaks will provide you with a Watch DOGS vest for the day. (WatchDOGstore link)



Step 4) The school day starts at 7:40 a.m. and we appreciate you being on time. On your scheduled day, please check in at the office. Present your photo ID to be scanned into Raptor. Once completed you will be provided with a badge and WatchDOGS schedule. When you're finished in the office, please come to the library with your student to have your photo taken.
