Program Goal: To help at Jo Ann Ford Elementary be positively influenced by the committed involvement of fathers and father figures in the lives of their children and students.
WATCH D.O.G.S. Background: 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 schools.
How WATCH D.O.G.S. Works: WATCH D.O.G.S. invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles or other father figures to spend at least one day all day or few hours at Ford Elementary during the school year. Men signed up at our kickoff “Dads and Kids Pizza Night” in Sept 2010 or they can sign up at any time at Hall Wall Calendar. Typical Watch D.O.G.S. volunteer duties include monitoring the school grounds, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the cafeteria, and helping in the classroom with a teacher’s guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards, or spelling.
