Dads of great students

(Dads Of Great Students) is a family and community engagement educational initiative.

There are 2 primary goals of the WATCH D.O.G.S. program:

  1. To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.
  2. To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.

We believe that all of us want the same things for our kids and these values unite us. This program serves to bring communities closer together based on these values-based goals. Ultimately, our purpose is to change the country for the better by doing our small part to provide support to our educators and encouragement to our children.

Winter / Spring 2024 Updates:

  • You pick the Friday that works best for you; and you pick the times that work best for you.
  • You get to have lunch with your student on the day you volunteer as a Watch Dog
  •  What you can do during your time at Freeman as a WATCH DOG. You may read to classes or have students read to you, work on flash cards for math facts or sight words, play or referee at recess or in PE, eat lunch with students or help with lunch duty, patrol the school entrances and hallways, assist with special projects, help with carpool. Teachers will also be placing “Watch DOGS Welcome” Signs outside their classroom door. To let you know you are welcome to come in.. they have been waiting for you.

Sign up for your Friday!
