Watch DOGS

Who are Watch DOGS (Dads of Great Students)? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to spend least one day a semester at Maple Grove assisting in a variety of school activities.

The Watch DOGS program encourages fathers and father figures to spend a few hours in their children's school helping with a wide variety of daily activities and adding an additional level of safety and security to the school environment. During the day the Watch DOG has a flexible schedule that includes such things as assisting with classroom activities, escorting kids to/from classrooms and the vehicle pick-up areas, security checks and a whole lot more depending on what is needed during that particular day.  The schedule allows dads to do those thing that they most want to participate in or feel most comfortable with.
