Watch D.O.G.S

WATCH DOGSWe are excited to welcome our Watch DOGS back to SHES! Watch DOGS (which stands for Dads of Great Students) invites fathers and father figures to volunteer in the school, keep hallways and classrooms safe, and provide a positive role model for kids. 

BEFORE you can volunteer for Watch DOGS, you must follow the volunteer process outlined on the website (https://www.usd230.org/community/volunteer). [[Go to https://www.usd230.org, go to the Community Tab, and click on the section titled 'Volunteers.']] Follow the steps to register as a volunteer and complete your background check. The background check must be completed and approved before you can come into the school. A Volunteer Card will be sent to you once you complete this process. You CANNOT come into the school unless you have already received your Volunteer Card. You must show your Volunteer Card at the office when you sign in.

Dates for Watch DOGS to volunteer will start on Monday, October 18 and run through the rest of the school year. Please sign up for only ONE day at first. This gives everyone a chance to sign up for a date. After a week or two, if you would like to sign up for more dates, you are welcome to do so! The link for the sign up sheet is now live: Watch DOGS Sign Up

You can purchase your own Watch DOGS shirt to wear from the website (https://dadsofgreatstudents.com/general -- the official uniform t-shirt for $14.95) or you can borrow one of the school's shirts on the day that you come in. You can also bring your own lunch or purchase one from the school cafeteria for $4.60.

As a Watch DOGS volunteer, you will be given a schedule to help out in several classrooms and will also spend time with your student. Please sign in at the office between 7:40am and 8:00am and expect to stay until 3:10pm. When you go into classrooms, teachers might ask you to help with a small group, read a book to the students, or play a learning game with students in the pod. You will also go to specials classes, lunch, and recess with your children.
