GHS parents commit to 25 hours of volunteer service to the school per family per year. Many parents generously donate much more. Volunteering is fun and it helps the kids. There are numerous ways to help and information can be optained from the Front Desk.
Food & Refreshment Donations For Special Events
Some of the events listed ask for water and food donations (e.g. Walk-A-Thon). For every twenty dollars you spend on purchased items, you will receive one hour of credit. Baking or cooking for an event earns you two hours credit (e.g. cooking for staff appreciation luncheon).
Driving/Chaperoning Field Trips
You can earn credits for time spent driving or chaperoning class field trips. Our teachers notify parents of field trip opportunities. NOTE: Not everyone who volunteers to chaperone or drive on the Middle School overnight field trips are able to attend. If more parents volunteer than are needed the administration will make the final decision on who will actually chaperone the field trip.
Parents Providing Expert Assistance To The School
With administration approval, any expert assistance you provide to the school or students will earn hour for hour credits. Examples: professional painter (painting classrooms or buildings); doctors or scientists (lecturing classes); professional artists (assisting in art class or with the auction projects. etc.)
