Welcome to the Oakland Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students).

The purpose of the Watch Dogs Program is to bring more male volunteers into our school.  Watch Dogs are fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers, uncles, adult brothers, or other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in our school. 


A day as a WatchDog feels like being a Hero!  The kids love having us around.  Teachers enjoy the extra help in the classroom.  Your student will be super proud to have you at the school for the day!  You will feel proud for helping and appreciate experiencing a day in the life of our children.
