The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program is designed for “Father figures” to provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important. Meanwhile, providing 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.


This program serves to bring communities closer together.  Our purpose is to provide support to our educators and encouragement to our children.



We request one full day or half day of the school year.  We will coordinate with your student(s) teacher(s) and staff and develop a schedule for your assigned day.  Some duties could be morning announcements, greeting students in the morning, patrolling the hallways and school perimiters, shadowing your student(s) for a lesson, lunch and recess with your student(s) and so much more! 



We welcome "father figures" of all kinds -  Mom, Dad, Uncle, Grandfather, etc.
