Encouraging dads (or any adult caregiver!) to spend time on campus
Our PTA is happy to be a part of the National Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) organization. Despite it's name, any positive adult role model is welcome to volunteer, regardless of gender!
The WATCH D.O.G.S. program is one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country. WATCH D.O.G.S. is a family and community engagement educational initiative designed and developed by educators, experts and parent volunteers over more than two decades.
The program helps provide positive role models for students by demonstrating the importance of education through their presence on campus. Meanwhile, they provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security, reduce bullying and provide a greater sense of campus safety allowing students and teachers to focus on learning. Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other positive adult role models are urged to join!
