Watch D.O.G.S.


Watch D.O.G.S. are Dads of Great Students, and we love welcoming them into our elementary schools. Here in Millard, each year more than 2,000 Watch D.O.G.S. spend a day in their child's elementary school, volunteering more than 12,000 hours annually. 

Founded in 1998, Watch D.O.G.S. is one of the largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country. More than 6,450 schools across the country have launched a 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.

Who are Watch D.O.G.S?

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.

The Millard Public Schools has a program in every elementary school. If you are interested in volunteering at Norris,  please click here for the sign-up sheet.
