Dewey Elementray Watch D.O.G.S.(Dads of Great Students)

"WATCH D.O.G.S. is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center For Fathers. It began in 1998 in a single school in Springdale, Arkansas and has grown into a nationally recognized program that has brought hundreds of thousands of fathers and father figures into our nation's classrooms and hallways. WATCH D.O.G.S. has created millions of "in school" volunteer hours and continues to have a tremendously positive impact on the educational process. Today more than 3,156 schools in 46 states plus DC participate in Watch D.O.G.S."
