We are here to support the families, teachers, and staff at GWCS, and to ensure the GWCS family is a part of our great Roxborough Community of Philadelphia!
We can always use help but right now have four openings we need filled ASAP. We can use help with PTA business, fundraisers and events, the teachers and administration can use volunteers on field trips or to laminate, and new ideas are always welcome!
Both the PTA and the School need volunteers! In order to volunteer at the school while children are present, you must complete three background checks: two from PA, one FBI (including fingerprinting) - see CLEARANCES
Here are some things to watch for over the year:
Give Kids a Smile Day! - free dental screenings, typically late March, and coordinated through Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY), in partnership with The School District of Philadelphia.
New? So were we! And for that matter, new questions come up all the time! Here we've tried to answer some of the (Frequently Asked) Questions we had!
Things to keep in mind for next summer for camp:
Camp Invention at Copper Beech Elementary in Glenside
