Calling all Woodland Springs Fathers! If you are not familiar with the Watch D.O.G.S. program, please take a second to read the following information:
What is Watch D.O.G.S.?
Watch D.O.G.S. is a national father involvement program that works to make fathers visible in a school to support safety and education. One of the major goals of the program is to provide positive, male role models in our schools.
What will I do while at school?
Dads report to the school office at 7:25 a.m. on your assigned day. You will spend the morning greeting students, appearing on the morning announcements, and visiting your child's classroom. The remainder of the day is spent following a given schedule where you will rotate to various classrooms and also spend some time in the cafeteria and at recess. While visiting classrooms, teachers will have activities ready for you! This may include reading with students, playing games, practicing math facts, etc. It is important that Dads are able to stay the entire day (until 3:15 p.m.) because teachers and students will be expecting you and are always excited to see you!
Can I order a Watch D.O.G.S. shirt?
Yes! If you are interested in purchasing a shirt for yourself and/or your child, you can do this at the Watch D.O.G.S. website: http://dogstore2.fathers.com/ . Dads are NOT required to a wear a shirt to volunteer. If you purchased a shirt in previous years, you do not have to purchase a new one!
How do I get started?
The most important step is to complete your Volunteer Form through the KISD website! If we have not received your cleared background check before your assigned day, you will not be allowed to volunteer that day. It can take 1-2 weeks for these forms to be processed, so please go ahead and complete yours now (especially if you plan to volunteer early in the year). You can find the form at:https://www.kellerisd.net/Page/244 .
Thank you again for taking time from your work schedules to support our campus and students! We love our Dads!
