What Is Watch D.O.G.S.?

WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) is the safe school initiative of the National Center for Fathering that involves fathers and father figures to help create a more safe and secure learning environment in our nation's schools.
 
 
 Program Goal
To help every school in America be positively influenced by the committed involvement of fathers and father figures in lives of their children and students.
 
How WATCH D.O.G.S.® Works
 
WATCH D.O.G.S.®, a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day, all day, at their child's/student's school during the school year. Individuals sign up at a kick-off event such as a Dads and Kids Pizza Night or Donuts with Dad or in the office at any time throughout the school year. The program at Pleasant Hill Elementary school is overseen by Top Dog volunteer Drew Fullner, who partners with our Vice Principal, Leslie Stephens (leslie.stephens@leanderisd.org), to coordinate scheduling.
 
WatchDOG 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.
