Cathcart Elementary and the CPO are excited to support the Watch D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) program. WATCH D.O.G.S. is the safe school initiative of the National Center for Fathering that involves fathers and father figures to help create a more safe and secure learning environment in our schools.

Who are Watch D.O.G.S.? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day each year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator.
There will be a kick-off event for dads and kids this fall.   The program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer who partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for Watch D.O.G.S. to provide assistance at the school.  Watch DOG volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom. 

If you wish to be included in the Cathcart Watch D.O.G.S. e-mail distribution list or would like more information please email    cathcartwatchdogs@  .
