What is Watch D.O.G.S. Program?

    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.

    The Goals of the Program is 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 the Program Works
    Watch D.O.G.S., a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer one day at your child’s school during the school year. This program is supported by the Emerick PTO who partners with the school administrators to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for Watch D.O.G.S. to provide assistance at the school. Watch D.O.G.S. assist with a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including welcoming students, reading to classes, tutoring small groups, helping students in the lunchroom, eating lunch, and enjoying recess with your child or children. The possibilities are endless! 
    Your Watch D.O.G.S. Day
    Plan to spend the day volunteering in your child/ren classroom/s and other classes at your child’s grade level.
