Family Service

Families commit to providing 20 hours per year of service to the school upon enrollment of their children in GCCS.  Families can fulfill this commitment in a variety of ways:

  • Chaperoning fieldwork
  • Volunteering in the classroom
    • Assisting with lunch service
    • Reading with groups or individuals
    • Helping with projects
    • Serving as a guest expert
  • Serving as a Family Association Officer or Committee Chair
  • Volunteering at Family Association events
  • Serving on the Board of Trustees
  • Serving as a room parent
  • Performing clerical tasks at home
  • Working at Saturday Cleaning Days
  • Performing handiwork, e.g. light carpentry, painting
  • Doing photography or videography
  • Managing the class’s FaceBook page
  • Performing in the Family Talent Show

Each year as part of the enrollment/re-enrollment process, families complete a survey of their volunteer interests.  That information is provided to the classroom teachers and Family Association officers.  In addition, calls for volunteers will appear in Currents and in the weekly classroom newsletters.
