WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students)

WATCH D.O.G.S. ® (Dads Of Great Students)Driggers PTA organized the WATCH  D.O.G.S.® program on our Driggers campus this year. WATCH  D.O.G.S.® are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH  D.O.G.S.® school. During the day, WATCH  D.O.G.S.® may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well. Many school principals have reported that the mere presence of a WATCH  D.O.G.® dramatically reduces reports of bullying. On the day of their participation, WATCH  D.O.G.S.® are given a brief review of their involvement, and they wear an official
WATCH  D.O.G.S.®  t-shirt with a disposable ‘Dog Tag’ identifying them as WATCH  D.O.G.S.®. More detailed information about this national program being implemented at Driggers can be found here.
