How to make your day a successful one:

  1. Check in with front office for your Daily Schedule
  2. If you have one, always wear your WD uniform t-shirt while you are on WD duty.
  3. Stop by the office if you have any questions throughout the day
  4. Be approachable – smile, talk to the students, listen to them
  5. Be smart – follow the school’s policy on appropriate conduct and behavior with the students and faculty
  6. Be alert – if a situation arises, please report it to a school official starting with the principal (if available, utilize Walkie Talkie)
  7. Be available – the goal is to be of service to the school, teacher and students
  8. Mute your cellphone.  Put it away.  DON’T touch it.  It can wait.
  9. Remember that you are there for the whole school; not just your kids.  The other kids benefit greatly from your presence!  You may have to explain this to your kids…
  10. Be a positive role model –  as a WatchDOG volunteer, you MUST agree to uphold:
  •  Never use the student (boys’ or girls’) restrooms
  • Always use the faculty/staff restrooms.
  • Never be alone with students
  • Follow school’s confidentiality policy in regard to students and staff.
  • Always be visible to others
  • Do not be disruptive when classes are in session
  • Do not use profanity
  • Do not use any form of tobacco on the school grounds
  • Do not share religious or political views
  • Do not sell or give your official WATCH D.O.G.S.® T-shirt to someone who isn’t an approved WatchDOG volunteer
  • Limit personal use of cell phones and PDA’s
  • Never engage in any conduct that brings disrespect to yourself or your student(s), the School and/or the WATCH D.O.G.S.® Program and other volunteering men.
  • At the end of the day, DON’T FORGET to fill out the end-of-day surveys for WatchDOGS and for the Phillips Staff.
