Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) is the safe school initiative of the National Center for Fathering that involves fathers and father figures in order to provide positive male role models for students and enhance school security.
The school partners with fathers in allowing a half, whole, or even multiple days in a year to engage with their child and their child's peers. During their day, dads monitor the car line, assist in the classroom when needed with things like Bible verses, homework, flashcards, and spelling, and they get to have lunch and recess with their student! They also monitor the lunch room and walk the building perimeter ensuring student safety.
The best part is Dad gets to be a hero to his student for the day! Every child looks forward to the day his/her dad, grandpa, or uncle is the “D.O.G.”
