Dr. Royce Avery Participates in Watch D.O.G.S. Program at ShadowGlen Elementary

Dr. Royce Avery isn’t just the Superintendent of Manor ISD, he’s also an active parent of a student at ShadowGlen Elementary. On Wed. March 22, Dr. Avery participated in the WATCH D.O.G.S. program, which stands for Dads of Great Students.

Watch D.O.G.S. is a national program for father figures at SGE. It allows the fathers to participate and get involved with the class.

On Wednesday, Dr. Avery helped students with an in-class assignment and helped guide the line from assembly to the classroom.

“Parental involvement is critically important in any school district, and Watch D.O.G.S. is a great way for dads and other father figures to get in the classroom and help out,” Dr. Avery said after the experience. “I really enjoyed my time as a Watch D.O.G., and I thank ShadowGlen for hosting me this morning.”

ShadowGlen also had Brent Moore volunteer as a watch dog on the same day.

Those who are interested in participating in as a Watch D.O.G. should complete the MISD volunteer application at least 3 weeks prior to the preferred volunteer date. Volunteers should also contact SGE School Counselor Kristen Turpin at kristen.turpin@manorisd.net or 512-278-4700.

“We love our Watch D.O.G.S, and are so excited that Dr. Avery got to join us as one today,” said Shadowglen Principal Karen Miller-Kopp. “We want to thank every dad and father figure who has volunteered, and if you haven’t done so yet we want you to know that there’s no time like the present!”
