2022-2023 GACS VOLUNTEER HOUR REQUIREMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Lunchroom volunteer hours are currently paused for 2022-2023,
therefore, can not be counted towards your required hours.
The PFA requires families to volunteer 20 hours (15 hours for single-parent families) per year for the school.
Volunteer hours can be earned by volunteering for PFA, school, or classroom events.
If you chair an event, that will cover all service hours for the entire year.
Some examples include:
Field trip chaperone
Service on committees such as:
New Family Social
New Student Welcome
Attendance at PFA General Meetings
If you prefer to buy out your service hours, the fee is $25 per hour or $500 total.
New for the 2022-2023 school year is the option to buy out of all volunteering for the
school year at a discounted rate of $400. Payment must be received by
September 1, 2022, to receive the discount.
Any $500 sponsorship for an event will cover all hours for the year.
Each $25 donation throughout the year will count as 1 hour.
$150 Classroom Angel donation = 6 hours
$25 rebate for SCRIP gift card = 1 hour
In addition to fulfilling your service hours, you are required to enter them in Renweb.
Failure to do so will result in you receiving an invoice.
The PFA is authorized to administer the program. If you are unable to serve or fulfill your commitment,
you will be charged $25 per hour for each unfulfilled hour.
Parents who transport athletes to and from practice and game sites are considered to be doing so for the
convenience of the student's parents. Driving time is not part of required service hours.
Contributed hours may not be credited to any other parent to satisfy their required responsibility.
In the course of required work, confidential information about students, teachers, support staff, or parents
may be learned. This information must remain confidential in any setting inside or outside the school,
just as one would wish their privacy to be respected.
