Watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students) is an innovative program focusing on education and safety in schools by using the positive influence of fathers and father-figures for a two-fold purpose:
1. To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.
2. To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.
Fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers and uncles are asked to spend at least one day at their student's school volunteering. They will support the school through monitoring the school property, working in small groups with kids, reading, using flashcards, helping with homework, refereeing games, listening ears, or whatever else needs to be done to plant the seeds of success in the lives of students.
Your day as a Watch DOG will be memorable for your student, rewarding for you, but if we can get half the fathers of Grant Ragan to volunteer one school day, it will be transformational in the lives of 700+ students at Grant Ragan Elementary School.
Please sign up to today to volunteer!
You can borrow your Watch DOGS uniform for the day when you arrive at Grant Ragan or you can purchase your own t-shirt here.
