More than 50 dads and father-figures came to Jefferson on Tuesday, January 15 to learn about the WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students!) program. The WATCH D.O.G.S. program's goal is to engage men, inspire children, reduce bullying and enhance the educational environment in a school. Today, more than 2,610 active programs in 42 states participate in the WATCH D.O.G.S. program.
The WATCH D.O.G.S. program provides positive male role models for the students when they volunteers to spend the day in the school. The dad and father-figures take part in morning announcements, help students in the classroom, eat lunch with students and are involved in other fun and visible activities. They are "heroes" in our school!
We're super excited to have so many male role models interested in making Jefferson an even better place for learning!
