This year we thrilled to continue our wonderful "Watch D.O.G.S." (Dads of Great Students) program, which is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center for Fathering. This is a nationally recognized program that has brought hundreds of thousands of fathers and father figures into our nation's schools as volunteers. 

How WATCH D.O.G.S. Works: 
Fathers and father figures volunteer at least one day a year at their child's school. Volunteers will perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day, such as monitoring the school entrance, assisting with loading cars and buses, monitoring the lunch room, and helping in classrooms under teacher's guidance.
