Attention Dennis Chavez Dads, Grandfathers, Uncles and Father Figures:

Do you want to see your child smile?

 Join the Dennis Chavez WATCH D.O.G.S. Team!


WATCH DOGS is a program that engages men, inspires children, reduces bullying and enhances the educational environment at your school. It is the father involvement initiative of the National Center for Fathering that organizes fathers and father figures in order to provide positive male role models for the students and to enhance school security. Today, more than 2,276 active programs in 41 states participate in the WATCH D.O.G.S. Program.


Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator.

Men, if you are interested in being involved in this program next year, please contact the chair of this committee ASAP:


There will be special training for this program at the beginning of each school year, and you will be required to have an APS Background Check. Background checks need to be renewed every two years.
