Who are WatchDOGS?
As a Hero of the Hallways, WatchDOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer for at least one day each school year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. school.
What do WatchDOGS do while they are at school?
- Follow your personalized Daily Schedule
- Always wear your WD uniform t-shirt while you are on WD duty
- Stop by the office if you have any questions throughout the day
- Be approachable – smile, talk to the students, listen to them
- Be smart – follow the school’s policy on appropriate conduct and behavior with the students and faculty
- Be alert – if a situation arises, please report it to a school official starting with the principal (if available, utilize Walkie Talkie)
- Be available – the goal is to be of service to the school, teacher and students
- Be a positive role model – as a WatchDOG volunteer, place a check next to each box you have read and agree to uphold:
