Wasatch Elementary School

We are so lucky to have Watch DOGS (Dads Of Great Students) volunteers at Wasatch!

So…What are WatchDOGS? Watch DOGS are Dads Of Great Students.The WatchDOGS program is affiliated with National Center for Fathering and there are millions of DOGS across America. To read more, go to www.fathers.com. The purpose of the program is simple – to bring more male volunteers into our schools. Watch DOGS are fathers, step-fathers, uncles, grandfathers and father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in our school.

It’s a D.O.G.S’s Day Our Watch DOGS arrive at 8:10 a.m. in the morning. WatchDOGS and their children wear T-Shirts so they are easily recognized in the building. A DOGS’s day begins by greeting students as they arrive and assisting in the drop-off lane or by the bus loop.

After a brief orientation, DOGS receive a detailed schedule for the day. We keep dads busy in classrooms, working with small groups of students, helping teachers with special projects and many other things. Later on, DOGS hang out in the cafeteria with the students, enjoy lunch with their own children and spend time at recess getting to know the kids. You may even find them joining in on a game of basketball or four square. The day ends around 3:30 with a reminder call to the next WatchDOG dad and saying goodbye to students. It is a busy but very rewarding day.

Es un DOGS.

Es un día D.O.G.S. Nuestros Watch DOGS llegan a las 8:10 de la mañana. Los WatchDOGS y sus hijos llevan camisetas para que se les reconozca fácilmente en el edificio. El día de un DOGS comienza saludando a los estudiantes a medida que llegan y ayudando en el carril de bajada o en el bucle del autobús.

Después de una breve orientación, los DOGS reciben un horario detallado para el día. Mantenemos a los papás ocupados en las aulas, rabajando con pequeños grupos de alumnos, ayudando a los profesores con proyectos especiales y muchas otras cosas. Más arde, los DOGS pasan el rato en la cafetería con los estudiantes, disfrutan del almuerzo con sus propios hijos y pasan iempo en el recreo conociendo a los niños. Puede que incluso se unan a un partido de baloncesto o de cuatro en raya. El día ermina alrededor de las 3:30 con una llamada de recordatorio al siguiente padre WatchDOG y despidiéndose de los estudiantes. Es un día ajetreado pero muy gratificante.
