Ways to Get Involved

As a parent-founded school, GDS simply cannot operate successfully without the volunteer efforts of our dedicated parents. There are numerous ways to become involved.

Volunteer Opportunities

List of 8 items.

  • PSA

    The Parent Service Association (PSA) supports our teachers and students directly, from division-specific support to community service work.
  • Annual Fund

    As a volunteer for the annual fund, you play a crucial role in the success of the annual fund and in the health of our School. Volunteers serve as grade or alumni class chairs, or simply show up at phonathons to make some calls! Responsibilities include: soliciting gifts from parents in your grade or alumni in your class; attending phonathons; and serving as an enthusiastic and energetic representative in letters, emails, and events!
