Every elementary school in Midway has the program: Castleman Creek, Hewitt, Speegleville, South Bosque, Woodway, and Spring Valley.
Do I have to be a dad to join?
You can be any type of father figure to a student at the campus where you intend to volunteer. An uncle, older brother, family friend, grandpa, etc. can be a member of Watch D.O.G.S.
What will my role entail?
Each campus is different but depending on the days and times you volunteer for, you may be asked to help students out of their cars in the mornings, assist students during lunch, read to classes, or help with P.E. Some campuses have the day's dad speak to classes about their job and even help with the morning announcements. For more information about what your specific campus dads do, contact the school (you can find their numbers here).
