What are the goals of a WATCH D.O.G.S. program?

1) To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.

2) To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.

Who are the WatchDOGS?

WatchDOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. school.


What do WatchDOGS do (while they are at school)?

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.

Follow these easy steps:


1.  Fill out the RRISD Volunteer Application Form

All volunteers that will be interacting with students on campus MUST complete the RRISD volunteer application form each school year. This is separate from the Watch DOGS registration form below.

2.  Register to be a WatchDOG at Deep Wood

After you have filled out the RRISD Volunteer Application above, please register as a WatchDOG in our internal database at DWE. This will help the amazing staff at DWE to plan your WatchDOG visits at our school! CLICK HERE TO REGISTER


3. Choose your day(s) that you would like to be a WatchDOG!
Click HERE to access the official DWE WatchDOG calendar to sign up for the day(s) and times you would like to volunteer. On the calendar, scroll down to the month and click on your preferred day, Then type in your name and the times you would like to be there. Example: "John Smith, Full Day". Or, "John Smith, Half Day Morning" (or afternoon). Feel free to type in a specific time as well if needed. Remember, you can volunteer as much or as little as you like. We just encourage you to come at least once.  


4. Get your official Watch D.O.G.S. t-shirt

We encourage all WatchDOG volunteers to wear an official Watch D.O.G.S. shirt on the days that they volunteer. This is a way to identify yourself when you are up at the school, and it lets the students and teachers know that a WatchDOG is in the building! Yeah, it's kind of a big deal.
