Who are the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students)?

  • Dads
  • Grandpas 
  • Step-dads 
  • Or other father figures

What do the Watch D.O.G.S. do?

Spend a whole day at school being a role model for kids:

  • Volunteer in their student(s)'s classroom as well as others (up to 4 classrooms in a day!)
  • Enjoy lunch with their kid(s)
  • Help at lunch and recess by chatting or playing with kids 

Program Benefits

  • Students gain a positive male role model. Some students do not have a father-figure present in their home and the number of male teachers has been steadily declining in recent years. More positive male role models are needed in the school setting.
  • Schools gain an extra set of eyes and ears. The presence of Watch D.O.G.S. can increase a sense of security for students and staff, and it helps create an environment conducive to learning.
  • Fathers spend meaningful time with their students in school and gain a greater awareness of the positive impact they can have on their student's life, just by being a "dad".
  • When Watch D.O.G.S. invest a day at school, they can learn how better to partner with the school to meet educational goals of students.
