FALLBROOK – On the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 14, William H. Frazier Elementary School kicked off the WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) program with a Dads and Kids Pizza Night. The event was attended by students, fathers, and father-figures of the school.

“The program is the father involvement initiative of the National Center For Fathering,” a source stated. “It was inspired by one father’s desire to increase male involvement in his children’s school and with the help of the school’s teachers and administration. WATCH D.O.G.S.® was created in 1998 at George Elementary in Springdale, Ark. Since then, the program has spread to thousands of schools in over 42 states and other countries abroad.”

“Each school year thousands of men volunteer to work at least one day in their child’s school through the WATCH D.O.G.S.® program. These men work along side the educators to help as crossing guards, car/bus rider facilitators, hallway monitors, library assistants, lunchroom helpers, classroom and homework tutors and much more.”

“Studies by the U.S. Department of Education have demonstrated that a positive adult male role model will have a uniquely positive impact on the development and educational success of a child.”
