Here is a sample daily schedule so you can know what to expect as a WatchDOG at Roberts!
WATCH D.O.G.S.®is the father involvement initiative of the National Center for Fathering that was founded by Jim Moore, a concerned father who chose to take action in response to a 1998 middle-school shooting in Jonesboro, AR. Moore wanted to help prevent violence from occurring at his children’s school or at any school. The first program was launched at George Elementary in Springdale, AR, the school of Moore’s oldest child. Today, more than 1,659 programs in 38 states and New Zealand participate in WATCH D.O.G.S.®
Program Goal: To help every school in America be positively influenced by the committed involvement of fathers and father figures in lives of their children and students.
How WATCH D.O.G.S.® Works : 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. 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, or helping in the classroom with a teacher's guidance by working with small groups of students.
