Watch D.O.G.S.


Join the Cold Harbor Elementary School Watch D.O.G.S. Team!

 We are excited to begin our fourth year of the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program at CHES.  Watch D.O.G.S. is a father involvement initiative of the National Center for Fathering. The program's objectives are safety and supporting education. D.O.G.S. provide an extra set of eyes and ears to watch out for any potential problems and serve as a positive male role model for the entire student body.

Fathers or father figures volunteer for at least one day all day during the year; hours are 7:45 A.M. -2:15 P.M. While dads are volunteering, they will greet students as they arrive, monitor the lunch room and eat lunch with their student(s), supervise recess activities, help in classrooms with a teacher's guidance, and assist with miscellaneous tasks (see schedule).

If you would like to sign up to be a "D.O.G", please contact Theresa Broaddus, guidance counselor, at tbroaddus@hanover.k12.va.us or 723-3620.
