WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) – Engage men, inspire children, reduce bullying and enhance the educational environment at your school. It is a father involvement initiative of the National Center for Fathering that organizes fathers and father figures in order to provide positive male role models for the students to enhance school security.
Today, more than 2,276 active programs in 41 states participate in the program.
Who can be involved? 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.
Currently both Oviatt and Lakewood endorse this program and regularly have WatchDogs in their halls.
