Watch DOGS

Calling all future Bell Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students)!


Watch D.O.G.S. is a one-of-a-kind father involvement program that supports education and safety. It began in 1998 and has grown into a nationally recognized program that has brought thousands of father figures into classrooms and hallways across the country and has had a tremendous impact on the education process. Specific goals of the 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. Watch D.O.G.S. are fathers, uncles, adult brothers, stepfathers, grandfathers or any other father figure who is willing to volunteer at least one day a year at Bell Elementary.
