Who are Watch D.O.G.S. and how does WATCH D.O.G.S. work?
Watch D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. school. Fathers and father figures sign up to volunteer through our kick off event or by signing up any time throughout the school year. The program is overseen by our “Top Dog” volunteer who partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for Watch D.O.G.S. to provide assistance at the school. WatchDOG dads and 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.
To be a Watch D.O.G.S., you must be a member of Newman PTA and complete the FISD Background Check
