Watch D.O.G.S.

During COVID-19 restrictions, the Watch D.O.G.S. program has been suspended. We hope to resume as soon as possible.

Watch D.O.G.S. is a one-of-a-kind, school-based father involvement program that works to support education and safety. Watch D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer at least one day a year. A variety of school activities are assigned by the school principal or other administrator. These men serve as positive role models, encourage and inspire students, and even increase school safety.

To learn more, please visit the Watch D.O.G.S. website.

Charlotte Ballard, Counselor and Watch D.O.G.S. School Liason, will provide a detailed schedule and information about the day.  Watch D.O.G.S. are welcome most Fridays during the school year.
