Volunteers & GCA PTSO Committees

We are looking for volunteers to fill our committees for the 2019-2020 school year. The volunteer list was scrubbed clean at the end of the 2018-2019 school year; therefore, if you were a parent volunteer for the 2018-2019 school year, you will still need to fill out the survey for this year. If you are interested, please fill out this survey and we will be in touch with you.

GCA PTSO Executive Board Special Election

Your GCA PTSO will begin the nomination process for a "Special Election" in September. The election will be held to fill the positions of:

GCA PTSO Vice Secretary: The vice secretary shall assist the secretary and carry out the secretary’s duties in his or her absence or inability to serve as well as other duties as may be assigned by the President or the Executive Board.
