  • Watch D.O.G.S. (Dad of Great Students) is our volunteer program aimed at fathers - helping them feel welcome volunteering in our schools and mentoring our students. Learn more about the program by visiting the Watch DOGS website.

    A recent comment from one our Watch DOGS: "It was a lot of fun. Thanks for inviting us out. You guys do a fantastic job at Meadows. I can’t express enough how happy we are with the effort, and commitment that the Staff gives the children, and their families. We have been stationed in a few different school districts in our short school career, and Meadows is our favorite. Keep up the Great work!"
