Calling all Dads, Stepdads, Uncles and Adult Male Role Models! Please consider volunteering for WatchD.O.G.S this year! WATCH D.O.G.S.® is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life.  Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.
