Jarrell Middle School is a Watch D.O.G.S. school. In order to increase the positive male influence on campus, we ask any father who would like to volunteer at their child's school. All you need to do is fill out the volunteer background form, order your shirt, and sign up for a date by clicking the logo below:

Program benefits

  • Students gain a positive male role model. Some students do not have a father-figure present in their home and the number of male teachers has been steadily declining in recent years.  More positive male role models are needed in the school setting.
  • Schools gain an extra set of eyes and ears. The presence of WatchDOGS (Dads Of Great Students) can increase a sense of security at the building for students and staff, and it helps create an environment conducive to learning.
  • Fathers and father-figures can spend meaningful time with their students in the school setting and gain a greater awareness of the positive impact they can have on their student’s life, just by being a ‘dad’.
  • When WatchDOGS invest a day at school, they can learn how better to partner with the school to meet educational goals of students.

WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center For Fathering. There are two primary goals of the WATCH D.O.G.S. program.

1) To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.

2) To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.
