Watch D.O.G.S. is a school based father involvement program that works to support education and safety within the school. Fathers, Grandfathers, or male Guardians can volunteer their time before, during, or after school. Watch D.O.G.S. are encouraged to come to lunch with their child and help supervise during recess. Watch D.O.G.S. are welcome at arrival and dismissal times to assist with student safety at these times. One of the great benefits of Watch D.O.G.S. is the classroom experience. Watch D.O.G.S. can see what their child is learning, and with preplanning they may be able to do a read a loud to their child’s class.
