The GTACS Parent Activity Committee encourages parent participation in a variety of sponsored functions throughout the year and believes that parent engagement increases active participation, communication and collaboration between parents and schools.
Why volunteer? Parent volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for the school community while showing their kids the importance of participating in the larger community. Not only will the school reap the benefits of your involvement — you will, too. By interacting with teachers, administrators, and other parents on a regular basis, you’ll gain a firsthand understanding of your child’s daily activities. Whether your kids are just starting kindergarten or entering the final year of high school, there are many good reasons for parents to volunteer at school. I don’t have much free time to volunteer, how can I get involved?
Volunteering ranges from sending in a much needed classroom supply to baking for staff. There are almost always volunteer opportunities. The PAC welcomes grandparents and other immediate family members to participate. To get involved, contact Julie Egelus.
