WatchDOGS (Dads of Great Students) is open to dads, stepdads, uncles, grandfathers, or special friends of Eakin Students. WatchDOGS commit to spending a school day at school volunteering in both your child's classroom and other classes. It's a great way to help out your Eakin community and make a positive impact in the lives of your child's classmates.
Regardless of whether you have been in the WatchDOGS, a new free background check is required each year. Your background check will need to clear before you can volunteer. The website to sign up for the free background check is: Pencilforschools.com
. Follow these steps:
- Scroll down to the bottom right and click on 'volunteer today'
- Under the heading 'literacy partner' click 'sign up'
- A password prompt will appear- the password is PENCIL1718
- You should then be able to enter your information so that a background check may be completed. Please select the purpose of the background check as "WatchDOGS" in the pull down menu.
You can then view the Eakin Watchdog calendar
to sign up for a day to volunteer.
