Want an easy way to connect with your child in a meaningful way?

WATCH D.O.G.S.® is an innovative program being used by schools across America, which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their students’ life. The goal is to have these men spend a day a year at the school to be an extra set of eyes and ears as a positive male role model.

WatchDOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at Rountree. During the day, WatchDOGS help with Specials, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch 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.

What do I do to become a WATCHDOG:
