Watch D.O.G.S. Helping In Father/Child Education

Dads are becoming more involved in their children's education at Bowie Elementary School.

The school has a new program called Watch D.O.G.S. It stands for Dads of Great Students.

The program focuses on students and fathers and father figures for the elementary. It was inspired by one father's desire to increase male involvement in his children's school.

WATCH D.O.G.S was created in 1998 at George Elementary in Springdale, AR and has since spread across the country. Research has shown a positive adult male role model can have a positive impact on the development and educational success of a child.

Each school year thousands of men volunteer to work at least one day in their child's school through the WATCH D.O.G.S. The men work along side the educators to help as crossing guards, car/bus rider facilitators, hallway monitors, library assistants, lunchroom helpers, classroom and homework tutors and playground/gymnasium coaches.

For information on the WATCH D.O.G.S. program call 1-888-540-3647, e-mail watchdogs@ fathers.com or visit www.fathers.com/watchdogs.
