A message from former PTA President April Gallegos....
Hello GCS Parents and Teachers:
The first rule of PTA is: you can do no wrong in PTA.
The second rule of PTA is: you can do no wrong in PTA.
The third rule of PTA is: you can do no wrong in PTA.
Truly, our Parent Teacher Association will accept any ideas, any amount of time and any amount of money – it all helps and the success of PTA relies on you.
At the start of a new school year, we want to thank everyone that contributes to the success our students – that includes every teacher, staff member and parent at Gonzales. As a community, we accomplish many goals that benefit our students and their future. My hope is that, as part of our community, you agree that we’re serving each other well and doing right by our children, yet there is still much more to accomplish.
We're not just a group of do-gooders that have nothing better to do than make muffins. In fact, we rarely make muffins. Most of our volunteer opportunities take place in the evenings or on the weekends and we have a lot of FUN!
It is only with your support that GCS PTA can continue to provide enriching programs for our students. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to GCS PTA during the 2017-2018 school year. You can sign-up online at http://www.gcspta.org/membership/
Together, let's make Gonzales the best school for our children and their future! Remember, you can do no wrong in PTA!
A message from current PTA President, Nicole Moulton....
To all Gonzales Community School Parents, Teachers, Staff, and Students:
First, a big THANK YOU to all the teachers, staff and parents who supported our PTA throughout this last year, it was a great success! I hope to meet each and every one of you this Fall as there will be many opportunities, both to socialize and volunteer for our wonderful GCS. But also, if you see me wandering about, just say HI! I promise not to rope you into any work (well, not immediately, anyway) ;-) I do want to hear from you—both your thoughts and opinions about what you love about GCS and what new things you would like to see at the school to make it an even better place for our kids and teachers. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at any time with any idea big or small.
I also would like to take the time to thank April Gallegos for her service as our GCS PTA president for the last two years. She has done incredible work building our community at GCS, and along with current board members Casey Stults and Robyn Romero-Cardenas, will stay on the board to serve as secretary while Casey and Robin will stay on as VP and treasurer, respectively. I am very much looking forward to working with them and feel in extremely capable hands.
When I first stepped into Gonzales in the summer of 2014, I was struck by how welcoming Mr. Lee was. He spent over an hour with myself and a friend who was hesitant to send her 5 year old to a school with, gasp, eighth graders! I quickly felt how familial and welcoming Gonzales Community School was and continues to be. I am very proud to tell people that my (now) first and third grader attend Gonzales Community School because it very much feels like a second home, where my kids feel safe and respected while they are learning so many new things.
I look forward to meeting and working with all of you this school year!
