Volunteering at GSC
WH GSC FAll 2017-18 General Volunteers

General Volunteer Opportunities

On the Registration website you were asked to either volunteer some of your time or to “opt out” from volunteering.  All members who chose to volunteer were automatically added to this list.

If you have "opted out" send us a note and we will remove your name from this e-mail group. 

Take a look to see where you can help.  Note that some jobs have to be done during school hours, while others can be done at home.

Each task or job category on the Sign Up will specify the contact that is responsible for the job.  Your contact person will be in touch.  If you have signed up to help in the classrooms, please take the initiative to speak with that teacher.

Do you have any special talents that you would like to share with GSC that are not represented below?  Are you an artist or perhaps an IT professional?  Let us know how you’d like to share your talents with us and we will see if there is a spot for you.

We are looking for a graphics artist who would be willing to spearhead a yearbook initiative.  

Town Volunteers are needed for each community to distribute brochures to places like the public library, pre-schools, local schools (public and private at all levels), area businesses, and even your place of employment.  Brochures should be distributed as needed throughout the year.  This is a task that everyone should be doing regardless of other volunteer commitments or your opt out status.  Stop by the office to pick up your brochures, or download one from this site.

This year is a transition year as many of the regular volunteers have children who will be aging out of the school.  This means that there will be many more tasks than usual from which to make your choice.  

Please let me know if you have any comments or questions about GSC's policy or the specifics of any task/position.  If I can't help you, I'll know who can!  

Your Sign Up Genius Coordinator is parent volunteer, Zeynep Serdar.  Many thanks to Zeynep for taking on this responsibility!
