We Need Volunteers
2 Ways to Volunteer
- Look for the lightbulb volunteer button at gtchs.org
- Fill out the online volunteer form
We can help you find the volunteer opportunity that meets your needs when you sign up on the online volunteer form.
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.

PIP Purchses Safety Locks
Every Room Can Lock in Seconds For Safety
Attendance Clerk, Ms. Lissa Cady, demonstrates how easily she can insert the lock to block an intruder. Locks like this one were purchased with money from PIP to secure every classroom at GTCHS.
PIP Lunch Volunteers
PIP money is used to fund mini-grants for GTCHS teachers to supplement their teaching. Among the many mini-grants used to help GTCHS teachers, Ms. Hawkins received some needed software for her technology program and Mr. Adomatis purchased some needed science equipment.
