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 Watch DOGS? 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 principal or other administrator.
“Hello. I just wanted to provide some feedback on my Watchdog day. It was an honor to be able to come to the school and participate in this experience. I witnessed first-hand what a wonderful school this is, and I am so thankful that our daughter is enrolled there. I felt many times like a fish out of water, but all teachers and staff were super friendly and supportive of me being there, which made the day. With my moments of being with the kids I am reminded what a great and tiring task it is to manage kids all day long. Honestly, I don’t know how the teachers do it. I am so appreciative of everyone at Monroe Christian. God bless you all”.
