Jefferson R-VII would like to re-energize its Watch D.O.G.S. Program and we need fathers and father-figures to make it happen. Watch D.O.G.S is a K-12 program that makes it easy for fathers (or father figures) to spend meaningful time with their children in a school setting.

Watch D.O.G.S was designed to encourage dads and other male role models (grandfathers, uncles, older brothers) to get more involved in their children’s education, starting with spending a day volunteering at school. The agenda for the day may be reading to students, helping monitor hallways, helping at recess, eating lunch with students, mentoring students, or any other assigned activity where they engage with other children besides their own child.


We are very excited to spread this program to all the buildings in the district and look forward to having many Watch D.O.G.S taking part in this program.  More information will be sent home with the students of our district. If you have any questions please call any of the building principals.
