WATCH D.O.G.S. invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one full day at their student’s school during the school year. Watch DOG volunteers perform a variety tasks during their volunteer day.  Those tasks include monitoring the school walkways at the beginning of the school day, assisting with unloading and loading of the buses and cars, helping to monitor the playground, and helping in various classrooms with the teacher’s guidance by working with small groups of students on school work. WATCH D.O.G.S. is one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country. 


Since the program’s creation in 1998, more than 6,450 schools across the country have launched a WATCH D.O.G.S. program of their own.  Each school year hundreds of thousands of fathers and father-figures make a positive impact on millions of children by volunteering millions of hours in their local schools through this amazing one-of-a-kind program.


Note: While this program was created back in 1998 with the intent of getting fathers and father figures more involved with volunteering, the Bell PTSA believes that this amazing program should not be limited to one gender. All are welcome to sign-up and be part of this program!


A sign-up link will be added here when we are back to in-person learning and volunteers are allowed in the classrooms and shared spaces. Having said this, there is no need to wait any longer to get involved. We have SO MANY ways to get involved today. Visit our volunteer page.
