Wasatch Elementary School

Thank you to our volunteers the last fews weeks. We are so lucky to have Watch DOGS (Dads Of Great Students) 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.

Sign up to be a Watch DOG!
