WATCH D.O.G.S. is one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country. Since the program’s creation in 1998, more than 6,450 schools across the country have launched a WATCH D.O.G.S. program of their own. Each school year, hundreds of thousands of fathers and father-figures make a positive impact on millions of children by volunteering millions of hours in their local schools through this amazing, one-of-a-kind program. The Watch D.O.G.S. program consists of fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal.

If you are interested in becoming a Watch D.O.G. here at Cannonsburg let us know, we are ready for you! If you have any questions about the program, how to get involved, ways to get started, we would be more than happy to answer those questions as well. Our students had an amazing day with our first Watch D.O.G. of the year!
