What is WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students)?
WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer at Purefoy as part of an initiative to increase father involvement and provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.
What do WATCH D.O.G.S. do while volunteering?
During the day, Watch D.O.G.S. may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with your student(s,) patrol the school entrances and hallways, help with carpool and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well. There are many other opportunities for WATCH D.O.G.S. to assist throughout the school year, such as fun run, book fair, carnival, family fun night, field day and so much more!
How do I become a WATCH D.O.G?
All Watch D.O.G.S. must complete a FISD background check and be a member of Purefoy PTA to volunteer. We will have an informational kick off pizza party on September 19th, 2019 at 6PM for future Watch D.O.G.S. and their kiddos where they can learn about the various opportunities and sign up to volunteer.
