Volunteering at Gatewood

How Can I Help Gatewood Elementary?

Volunteers contribute their skills in ways large and small to help ALL of our students to succeed.

When you see an activity or event that you would like to help with, contact any PTA member for more information. Thank YOU!

Volunteer Your Time

Join the PTA. The Gatewood PTA always needs your help to make our events and fundraisers a Success!

Become a GATOR Aide . GATOR Aides assist their child’s teacher and team in finding the volunteer support they need in the classroom, allowing the teacher to focus on teaching. Coordinator, Jena Ingrham jenaingrham@yahoo.com

Volunteer in the classroom. The best way to reduce the Student: Teacher ratio is to have parents helping. Tutor a child in reading, chaperone a field trip, help with stuffing folders, or copying lessons. Combined volunteer minutes free up teacher hours for teaching.

Participate in a Fundraiser. The PTA runs a variety of fundraisers throughout the year. These include a fall cookie dough sale, a holiday wreath sale, Book Fair, the Bid for Kids Annual Auction, and our annual Walk-a-Thon.
