Program Goal At Caldwell Heights Elementary: To be positively influenced by the committed involvement of fathers and father figures in the lives of their children and students.
WATCH D.O.G.S.®, a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day all day at their child’s/student's school during the school year. Individuals sign up at a kick-off event such as the school's Open House, “Dads and Kids Pizza Night” or “Donuts with Dad” or in the office at any time throughout the school year.
The program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer who partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for WatchDOGS to provide assistance at the school.
WatchDOG volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, hanging out at recess, or helping in the classroom with a teacher's guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards, or spelling.
