Watch D.O.G.S. (Dad's Of Great Students)

Our WatchDOGS program is a K-5 program and invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and any other father figure to volunteer for at least one day at their childs school during the school year. WatchDOGS volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom with a teacher's guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards, or spelling.
