Check out some of the many ways you can volunteer at Grattan!
COMMUNITY AND FUNDRAISING EVENTS
Throughout the year, Grattan organizes fundraisers and events, and we need teams comprised of wonderful volunteers to pull it all together for the big day: Film Fest, Fun Fest, Inclusive Schools Week, Literacy Night, and more.
IN THE SCHOOL
There are ongoing volunteer needs that help all our students, lunch and recess monitors, library support, and enrichment escorts; these volunteers help with the general flow of the school day.
IN THE CLASSROOM
There are also volunteer needs in your classroom, such as chaperoning field trips, helping your teacher with photocopying and paperwork, and being a room parent. Contact your classroom teacher about these opportunities.
There are several committees at Grattan that always welcome volunteers: the Greening Committee, the Beautification Committee, the Inclusion Committee, the Literacy Committee, the Black Parent Group, and the Multilingual Families Group, to name a few. Find out more on our committees page.
There are a few administrative bodies that you can be involved with at Grattan: the PTA Board (Parent Teacher Association), the GASP board (Grattan After School Program), the SSC (School Site Council), and the ELAC (English Learner Advisory Committee).
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP
Not enough time to help out during the day? We can use help gathering supplies and donations for specific events. Or sign up for a bake sale at one of our community events!
Volunteering is so essential to building community and it gives parents a great sense of what is going on in the classroom and with the school at large! Any help is great!
