Watch D.O.G.S.

Watch D.O.G.S. Volunteer Signup at Thurgood Marshall ES

Dads (and Father Figures),

     Thank you for volunteering to participate in the Watch DOGS (Dads of Great Students) program at Thurgood Marshall Elementary School!  

     The purpose of the program is to provide a sense of security to the kids at the school in addition to simply providing the visible presence of a male role model.  This is part of a national program that has seen a decrease in bullying and an overall reduction of anxiety among students where the program is in place.   Here is a link to a short video from the Today Show on NBC featuring this program...

      In addition to supporting the students at TMES, this program also gives you an opportunity to be more involved in the school and to witness what goes on during a regular school day.  

      We're asking for volunteers to spend one day (or more) from 8:30am to 1:30pm at the school.   You'll check in at the main office where they will hand you a rough schedule and a free t-shirt (you get to keep it).    The t-shirt should always be visible so if it is a cold day you should plan on putting the shirt on top of your other layers of clothing.  Mostly your role is to be highly visible which means walking the hallways, poking your head into the gym or library, helping out in the cafeteria, spending recess outside with the kids, and walking around the outside of the building throughout the day.   You can sit with your child during lunch and go to recess with them as well.   We've also asked the teachers to assist us in allowing you to spend some time in your child's classroom during the morning hours.   Mr.Fields, the physical education teacher has also offered to let you participate in PE classes if you choose to do so.

  Below is a link to a list of email addresses for the teachers and staff at TMES.   Once you have selected a date to volunteer, please feel free to email your child's teacher to let them know that you are volunteering for the Watch DOGS program and would like to be able to visit your child's classroom.   If there is a time conflict please feel free to come back to this signup genius and change dates.  All classroom visits should be pre-arranged with the teachers.

 One of the ideas that a volunteer provided to us is that some volunteers may want to participate with a friend.  We've updated the signup genius so that two people can now volunteer on the same day.   We feel this may add to the sense of security that the kids feel when we are there and also may make the day more fun for the volunteers.  

 Please feel free to let us know if you have any suggestions, comments, or concerns.  The initial feedback that we've received about this program from volunteers and the staff at TMES is fantastic!   If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or 240-899-1274.
