 Who are WATCH D.O.G.S.?

WATCH D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at Maple Hills. During the day, WATCH D.O.G.S. may work with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well. On the day of their participation, WATCH D.O.G.S. are given a daily schedule of their involvement and they wear an official WATCH D.O.G.S. t-shirt identifying them as WATCH D.O.G.S..
