Helping at Gunn High School

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.

Click here to see Gunn PTSA open positions.  We need help and food for staff appreciation and lunch events, feeding students at test time, serving at student barbeques and the turkey feast, help with homecoming and grad night, helping staff parent ed school and PTSA events, and then helping run the PTSA itself.

Click here to volunteer in various classes and offices at school.  Help is especially needed in the first weeks back to school.  These positions include help with back to school textbook distribution, college & career, student activities, tutoring, library, arts, athletics, special ed, languages and classroom help in a variety of classes…

Sign up if you’re interested, or if you just want more information, let us know, and we will contact you with it.

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!
