WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) - Engage men, inspire children, reduce bullying and enhance the educational environment at your school.
WATCH D.O.G.S is the father involvement initiative of the National Center for Fathering that organizes fathers and father figures in order to provide positive male role models for the students and to enhance school security. Today, more than 2200 active programs in 41 states participate in the WATCH D.O.G.S. Program.
Who are WATCHDOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator.
Reeder has been participating in the WATCH D.O.G.S. program for many years now! Our first WATCHDOG was onsite January 5, 2012 and there have been WATCHDOGS on duty almost every day since!
Note: If someone other than Dad or Grandpa would like to be a WATCHDOG (uncle, family friend, etc.), district policy requires that a background check be completed on that individual before they are able to volunteer in the building. Please fill out the Volunteer Application and turn it in to the Reeder office, and also allow for plenty of time (3-4 weeks) for the paperwork to be processed.
