Watch DOGS (Dads of Great Students)
WATCH D.O.G.S. is an innovative program beign used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model.
The program itself is simple: dads, stepdads, grandpas, uncles, family friends, etc. are asked to take one morning during the school year, and spend it at Echo Lake. They check in at the office in the morning, and receive their WatchDOGS badge so students and staff can easily recognize them, receive a brief orientation and schedule, and then we put them to work. Duties include welcoming students as they arrive, sitting with/mentoring students in class, eating with children at lunch, and connecting with students at recess.
