Join the WATCH D.O.G.S. at Amy Parks!
WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center for Fathering.
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 ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.
Who are WatchDOGS and how does WATCH D.O.G.S. work?
WatchDOGS 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.
- Fathers and father figures have the opportunity to sign up online for their day to volunteer at: APHE Watch D.O.G.S. Be sure to click SAVE after you choose your day!
What do WatchDOGS do (while they are at school)?
During the day, WatchDOG dads and volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrances and hallways, assisting with traffic flow, unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, playing at recess, eating lunch with students, helping in the classroom with a teacher’s guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards, spelling, or any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well.
