Watch D.O.G.S. is a volunteer program aimed at increasing the presence of fathers in schools to serve as positive male role models. Cedar Wood is one of over 2,200 schools across 42 states that make up the national program. Each year at our school more than 125 dads and other men important to our students commit to one day serving on campus and spending time with the kids. This Watch D.O.G.S. video shares information about the national program.

 

There are three easy steps to serving as a Watch Dog at Cedar Wood.

 

Step 1 - Become an approved Everett School District Volunteer

 

Every volunteer at Cedar Wood must have a current approval from the District. To apply for volunteer approval visit this link. Approvals are good for three years. If you are uncertain of your status you may contact Rhoda Onken, Cedar Wood Office Assistant Manager, at ronken@everettsd.org.

 

Step 2 - Pick a date

 

We can host up to two Watch D.O.G.S. volunteers each day. Visit the Watch D.O.G.S. calendar to find an opening. Email your requested date to watchdogs@cedarwoodpta.org along with the names, grades, and teachers of your children.

 

Step 3 – Enjoy your day at school

 

Your time as Watch Dog begins at 8:45 AM with Mr. Coleman, the School Counselor. He will provide you with the official Watch D.O.G.S. vest, a name badge, and your schedule for the day. You will enjoy a full day on campus including lunch with your student(s). Watch Dog duty ends with the final bell at 3:30 PM.

Thanks for volunteering!
