Luray Elementary of Page County Public Schools introduced “The Watch Dogs” program this year.

“The Watch Dogs” are a group of dads, uncles, stepfathers, grandfathers, and other male role models who take time out of their day to leave a positive impact on students at the school.

“Watch Dogs”, or Dads of Great Students, is a national initiative which began in 1998 with the goal of providing positive male role models and highlighting the importance of education.

The group can be found helping students with classwork, putting on bandages, or giving teachers a helping hand.

They can choose to either help out in their student’s classroom or other classes.

Luray Elementary is still searching for additional “Watch Dogs” to help out.

If you are interested, the process is easy; just contact Assistant Principal Ryan Mettinger at rmettinger@pagecounty.k12.va.us and ask for more information.
