In the near future, don’t be surprised to see some friendly WATCH DOGS roaming the halls at Briscoe Middle School. The Department of Education supports the idea and has documentation that these Watch DOGS have a positive influence on students. The mere presence of these Watch DOGS has the potential to increase a sense of security for students and staff, and helps create an environment conducive to learning.
These are not the typical four legged dogs. These D.O.G.S. have two legs, a big heart, and a desire to build a safer community for their family and neighbors. These D.O.G.S. have all volunteered their valuable time to help secure and make a safer environment at Briscoe MS. This gift of time not only benefits their child but also helps provide leadership, security, and serves as a positive role model for ALL our children here at Briscoe MS. These are our Dads Of Great Students.
The WATCH DOGS is a national program sponsored by the National Center For Fathering. Today more than 2,610 schools in 42 states participate in WATCH D.O.G.S. This initiative invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day all day at their child’s/student's school during the school year.
Watch DOG volunteers will be performing a variety of tasks during their day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room and halls, or helping in the classroom with a teacher's guidance. Whatever their duties might entail, you can rest assured that at the end of the school day these DADs can go home with a sense of pride and the gratitude of a grateful community.
If you are a Dad Of a Great Student, please consider joining our pack.
