Your schools needs you!
Everything our school and PTA does is to support the classroom and our students. Whether it's raising money to fund NDI, recruiting volunteers to tutor students, or host a teacher appreciation breakfast, everything we do benefits our students in the classroom (happy teachers = happy and successful students).
Fortunately, there are many ways to help students succeed. You may:
Volunteer in the classroom by reading with students, tutoring students, making copies for teachers, etc.
For the past several years, our PTA made a decision to spend our reserves on beneficial programs for our students and teachers instead of the money sitting in a bank account. Unfortunately, we also did not have enough volunteers to help raise enough money to keep up our reserves so the party is now over - we will only spend what we raise each school year - nothing more, nothing less. Currently, our PTA fund balance is very low and PTA does not have any money to spend until we raise money this school year.

Can you believe that every program and event on this page only exists because of volunteers? Yep, volunteers. Now, one might think that most of the "jobs" listed here should be done by teachers and school staff and not volunteers, but unfortunately, our schools are not properly funded - the school simply does not have enough people :( Until our government properly funds our schools, WE (families and community members) need to chip-in or the program or event will not happen this school year.
These programs and events are enriching programs that we think help make GCS a great school. These programs and events will only be available to our students if we have volunteers, so please help make GCS a great school for your child by chipping-in!
Ideally, the following programs and events will have two co-chairs - a parent volunteer (or middle-school student) and a GCS staff volunteer. The co-chairs will work together in designing the event, coordinating volunteers, and communicating with the school and GCS PTA Board Members. Plus a GCS Board Member will help you every step of the way.
Programs and Events
If you are interested in volunteering in a future event, please contact the committee/event chairperson or volunteer to be the committee chairperson if you have a specific area of interest. You don’t need to be an expert or do all the work yourself to chair a PTA program or event. There are many opportunities to make a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE.
