Watch D.O.G.S. Program

The PTA will be launching the Watch D.O.G.S.

(Dads of Great Students) program in January 2017.

What are the goals of a Watch D.O.G.S. program?

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 ear 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.

What do Watch D.O.G.S. do (while they at school)?

During the day, Watch D.O.G.S. may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, patrol the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well.
