WATCH D.O.G.S. is a program offered by Farney Administration which intends to engage fathers in students’ lives. Dads Of Great Students are scheduled to be onsite at Farney most days during the school year to help out with activities going on at school, assist teachers with their lessons, participate in large group time, have lunch with their child, help with car rider line, etc. A dad’s presence at school has proven to be invaluable; the kids LOVE it! The Farney PTO highly recommends that Farney dads participate in this program. To get more information or to be added to the schedule, please contact the Farney Counselor, Shannon Zepeda.
WatchDOGS Program F.A.Q.’s
1. How do I sign up?
We have decided to allow our Watch DOGS to sign up online with Sign-up Genius by clicking on the link provided here: TBD
2. How long is the school day?
When you commit to being a Watchdog, we ask that you stay with us for the full school day. You will be asked to arrive at 8:20 a.m. and stay until 3:40 p.m.
3. How many times can I be a Watchdog dad?
As of now, we are only allowing each Watchdog to sign up for one date. Our program is so popular that we try to allow space on the calendar for everyone who wants to participate. If we have openings later on in the year, we will notify you at that time.
4. How will I know what to do and where to go?
When you arrive at school for your assigned day, we will provide you a personalized schedule. We will have you assigned to a variety of task like working in the library or helping out in recess. Oftentimes, you will start out in your child’s classroom but then move around the school so that you can gain a comprehensive view of how Farney works.
5. What should I wear?
We ask that you purchase a Watch Dog t-shirt but if you are not able to purchase a shirt then we ask that you wear a solid color shirt. It is recommended that you wear jeans or slacks along with comfortable shoes (you will most likely be on your feet for the majority of the day). Contact (TBD) if you need to purchase a t-shirt. The cost is $15 for Adult M-XL and $17 for XXL-6X.
6. What do I do about purchasing or bringing my lunch?
You are welcomed to purchase a lunch through the school cafeteria. You may also bring your lunch if you’d like.
