GRESHAM ARTHUR ACADEMY PARENT ORGANIZATION
GAAPO's Primary Goal: Provide Gresham Arthur Academy (GAA) with funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich the education of every student.
Past GAAPO contributions: athletic equipment, school computers, playground equipment, class field trips, in-school assemblies, concerts, and other hands-on experiences. A portion of the funds we raise go directly to your child’s teacher, which allows them to purchase supplemental classroom tools to maximize your child’s learning experience. This year we plan to support the Holiday Music Performance Club.
We ask that each parent volunteers at least ten hours of his/her time to our children and school during the school year. We’re a busy group and could use your help! Volunteering doesn’t require a huge time commitment and we have many opportunities that will work with your schedule, including tasks that can be performed during the evening, during the day, at the school, or at home. Please complete and turn in the Volunteer Form, along with the Background Check Form, and indicate what events/activities interest you.
We use SignUp.com to organize all of our volunteer opportunities. Please log in using the button below and set up your account or update last year's. This year, we will be tracking volunteer hours, and letting you know how you're doing. We will update everyone on volunteer hours by class regularly. So, be sure to log your hours! Teachers will also have access to setting up a page for each class to volunteer directly. This should make it much easier for everyone.
Our meetings can be found on the website calendar.
The most recent meeting minutes are attached below.
Once again, we would like to extend a warm welcome and best wishes for a successful school year. We hope you will join us in working to create a rich educational experience for our children. There is so much that can be achieved and we can’t do it without you! Please contact us with any questions or comments.Shannon
