Who are Watch Dogs?

WatchDOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at Brier Elementary.

What does a Watch Dog do?

During the day, WatchDOGS may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, patrol the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students but other students as well.

Why be a Watch Dog?

The goal is to provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.
