Volunteer Information

Gateway Charter High School encourages parents to provide 20 hours of volunteer hours for the first child, and 10 hours for all additional siblings. It is our belief that the more involved parents are in their child’s education; the better the student will perform academically.

Parents have many opportunities to volunteer their time both at school and at home. To volunteer in classrooms, please make prior arrangement with the teacher so that instructional time is not lost.

It is suggested that a minimum of 2 hours of volunteer service be spent working on school fundraisers and special activities. Parents will receive volunteer time for attending workshops and general parent meetings conducted in the school.

Ways You Can Earn Service Hours:

  • Assist in the cafeteria
  • Assist teachers with bulletin boards, cutting & craft activities
  • Attend PTO meetings, day and evening events
  • Volunteer for field day and/or field trips
