WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students)
WATCH D.O.G.S. is one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement organizations in the country. Since the program’s creation in 1998, more than 6,450 schools across the country have launched a WATCH D.O.G.S. program of their own. Each school year hundreds of thousands of fathers and father-figures make a positive impact on millions of children by volunteering millions of hours in their local schools through this amazing one-of-a-kind program.
Who are WATCH D.O.G.S.? – Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator.
What is our goal? – To engage men, inspire our Cochise Elementary children, reduce bullying and enhance the educational environment at our school.
Why are we proud? – With an A+ rating and in keeping with Cochise Elementary’s commitment to excellence, our school became the very first SUSD school to implement the WATCH D.O.G.S. program.
What do our D.O.G.S. do? – Currently, our WATCH D.O.G.S. assist with the morning drive drop-off as well as have a presence on the playgrounds. They also help organize and assist with special fundraising events for the school and lend a helping hand whenever it’s really needed.
How can you help? – We’re always looking for new D.O.G.S. and we can always use further assistance. If you’re interested in helping in any way or simply want to learn more about the program at our school, please contact the program coordinator.
