Become A WatchDog Day
Become A WatchDog Day

WatchDogs evolved out of a concern about school safety by a father who decided he wanted to prevent tragedy at his children's school, or any other school, by getting more parents, especially dads, into school buildings. The program started at a George Elementary in Springdale and now there are about 6,500 schools around the world, most of them elementary schools, that participate in the program. 
While the original idea was to attract fathers and other male father-figures, here at Washington Elementary School, we call on both parents, step-parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and other father figures to get involved!
