Bell Elementary is excited to bring back the WATCH D.O.G.S./Bell PAWS program. The program promotes parents/guardians/relatives of Bell students to volunteer for a full school day. This is an opportunity for those who cannot regularly volunteer at school. During your volunteer day, you will be given a schedule that will include working in different classrooms for 30 minutes, including a visit to your student(s)' classroom, eating lunch with your student(s), and offering supporting at recess. It is a fun filled day!


This program is organized by Bell Elementary, not the PTSA. Contact Sara Schmied ( with any questions.



The below button will be linked to a volunteer sign-up once this program is launched for the 2023-24 school year 




Note: The WATCH D.O.G.S. program was created back in 1998 with the intent of getting fathers and father figures more involved with volunteering and having more male role models in our schools. Bell Elementary and Bell PTSA believe that this program should not be limited to one gender. All are welcome to sign-up and be part of this program!
