WATCH D.O.G.S.®, (Dads Of Great Students) is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center For Fathering. It began in 1998 in a single school in Springdale, Arkansas and has since grown into a nationally recognized program that has brought hundreds of thousands of fathers and father figures into our nation’s classrooms and hallways.
As a K-12 program, it invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other male figures to volunteer one day at Kaneland Blackberry Creek Elementary School. Watch DOG 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 on homework, flashcards, or spelling. Please sign up below and you will receive a reminder email 2 days prior to your day. Continue reading
