    The success of GTCHS depends greatly on parent involvement.  Each family is asked to volunteer 36 hours or 18 hours per parent.  Pip can help link you to the type of service that meets your family needs.  Our area of greatest need is the Charter Cafe lunch volunteers.  There are also many other areas of parent involvement that we can share with you after you complete the electronic PIP Volunteer Form.  For your convenience, there is a parent volunteer log sheet below to assist you in tracking your volunteer hours.

    For questions about volunteering, please contact the PIP Volunteer Chair.
