Have you heard about Watch Dogs?

Have you heard of Watch Dogs? Do you want to learn more or sign up to be a Watch Dog?  Did you attend our pizza night and still want to sign up? This is ALL possible.

 

What is the Watch Dog program?

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.

 

Who are WatchDOGS? 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 or other administrator.

 

How do I sign up?

  1. You can email Amanda Ballou at aballou@pusd11.net to coordinate a date.
  2. Go to our school website: www.peoriaunified.org/skyview  then go to the tab Families and you will see Watch DOGS. There you will find a video on how to register online and choose a date. There are also links for the volunteer information and Watch DOG registration form that will need to be filled out and returned at least 5 days before your Watch DOG day at school.
