If you are a new parent, or just trying to get back into the swing of things, check out our New Parent page and make sure you’re signed up for all the right e-news feeds, and that you know what information is available to you. Back to School packets should be sent out to your home around August 10th. You should have received a letter from the Principal with back to school events, and know that your student’s schedule should be available to them on Infinite Campus now.
School will start August 13th. The school relies on an army of parent volunteers to help get school started, and then to provide a wide range of services during the year.

Johns Hopkins University identifies Volunteering as one of the essential ways a parent can contribute to a student’s success at school. Gunn PTSA has many volunteer opportunities, some that bring parents on campus to serve students directly, and some working with other parents on school-related projects – all of which are designed to support students and the school. Being on campus is especially beneficial for parents so you can experience the Gunn “ecosystem” yourself!
