Parents have many ways to take an active role in fostering GISSV’s mission and ensuring the best possible education for our students.
Volunteerism not only helps build a stronger program, but it also builds a stronger community. Volunteers are a huge resource and support base for the school. All GISSV parents are encouraged to be actively involved through a variety of volunteer opportunities. When you volunteer, not only the school will gain from your involvement—you will, too. The interaction with teachers, administrators and other families will help you gain a better understanding of your child's education at GISSV and build closer community ties.
We welcome your many talents, interests and energy!
Active participation takes on many forms. Opportunities include serving on the Board of Directors, joining the Parent Association (PA) or supporting committee work for school events and fundraising. Other activities that count towards the requested number of hours include recycling, helping with the library, transporting students to tournaments and field trips, serving lunch to students and more. Parents are also welcome as classroom presenters for special topics and as regular reading support in both languages.
