Academic Support Committee

Your GCA PTSO is looking for volunteers to help our wonderful GCA teachers during Class Connect Sessions. Room Coaches can help out by monitoring breakout rooms or watching for questions in the chat box. The Room Coach program will start in September. Register your interest here and we will contact you to pair you up with one of our teachers.

Pinterest Club

Are you a GCA Learning Coach?

Do you love Pinterest or even DIY?

IF you answered yes then you're in luck. We are starting a Pinterest page AND club just for you!!!

Please Join me October 16th 2017 at 5:00 PM for an introduction meeting. I would love to have volunteers for future meetings to share your favorite DIYs, crafts, or anything you think would be helpful to our fellow learning coaches. Once a month we will meet to do an activity or project that hopefully all will enjoy!

Don't want to volunteer, but you have a great idea, just let me know!! If you can't make it on the 16th that's okay, just follow our Pinterest page, it will be updated daily with new pins!
