WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) ® Program

What are the goals of the WATCH D.O.G.S. program?

 

  • To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.
  • To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.

 

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?

 
On the day of their participation at Beverly, WatchDOGS arrive by 7:15 a.m. and proceed to the reception desk at the front of the school where they are given a customized schedule for the day. During the day, WatchDOGS perform a variety of tasks, including monitoring the school entrances, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, and helping in the classroom with a teacher’s guidance by working with small groups of students on various types of schoolwork. WatchDOGS also perform many other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well. Many school principals have reported that the mere presence of a WatchDOG dramatically reduces reports of bullying.
