Dads serve as ’watch dogs’ at Spokane school

Tue., Dec. 18, 2012, 7:11 a.m.

SPOKANE — A group of men is patrolling the grounds of Roosevelt Elementary School in Spokane.

The “Watch Dogs” group organized earlier this year as part of a national program to involve more fathers and male role models in schools.

They started by monitoring halls, helping in classrooms and cleaning the lunchroom, a TV news station reported. Since the Connecticut school shooting they’ve been patrolling the school campus. Watch Dogs hopes to have at least one volunteer at the school every day.
