Watch DOGS

WATCH D.O.G.S. is a one-of-a-kind school-based, father involvement program that works to support education and safety.

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 WatchDOGS? 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.

We would love to have all our #RIVERWOOD guys that are interested in helping us kick off this program to attend an informational meeting on Tuesday, September 18th from 6:00-7:00 in our RIVERWOOD Cafeteria. You will here all about how you can positively impact the lives of a kiddo while being an active member of our school community!
