Who are WatchDOGS?

Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and any other father figures who can volunteer at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator. 

How does WatchDOGS work?

WATCH D.O.G.S.®, a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day all day at their child’s/student's school during the school year. Individuals sign up at a kick-off event such as a “Dads and Kids Pizza Night” or in the office at any time throughout the school year. The program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer who partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for WatchDOGS to provide assistance at the school. WatchDOG 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.

How often do I have to volunteer?

We know most people have busy schedules during the day, but you can make a difference by volunteering as a WatchDOGS just once during the year. We always welcome more frequent WatchDOGS too!

When is Terrace Park’s WatchDOGS kick-off event?

Terrace Park hope to have a WatchDOGS “Dads and kids pizza kick off” event in the fall in the commons. Come join other Terrace Park dad’s and kids to get information about the program, sign up and enjoy pizza!

Who can I contact to join WatchDOGS for the 2016-2017 school year?

We are looking for 2-3 people to help run the program this year.  Please email if you are interested in helping.
