Watch D.O.G.S

WatchDOGS (Dads Of Great Students) Program at Crestwood Elementary School

WATCH D.O.G.S. is one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country. Since the program’s creation in 1998, more than 6,450 schools across the country have launched a WATCH D.O.G.S. program of their own. Each school year hundreds of thousands of fathers and father-figures make a positive impact on millions of children by volunteering millions of hours in their local schools through this amazing one-of-a-kind program.

Who are WatchDOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school.

A typical day in the life of a WatchDOG includes lunch and recess with your student; time in your student’s classroom; helping in the cafeteria; working individually or in small groups with a variety of students; playing on the playground and getting to know students.  You’ll need your running shoes as you will be busy. And, you’ll have primo parking as there’s a parking spot reserved just for you!
