WATCH D.O.G.S. PROGRAM
- Greene County Tech Elementary
WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) is a national innovative program focusing on the prevention of violence in our children’s schools by using fathers and father-figures. WATCH D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at G.C.T. Elementary.
During the day, WATCH D.O.G.S. may read and work with students, play at recess, eat lunch with their child, watch school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow, mentor students, and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their child(ren), but other students as well. Their mere presence offers additional security at the school during the day! On the day of their participation, the participants are given a brief review of their involvement and they wear an official WATCH D.O.G.S. Across America t-shirt identifying them as WATCH D.O.G.S.
Volunteers are asked to call or come by the Principal’s office to sign up for a day to be a WATCH D.O.G.S. Dad and order a t-shirt.
