PAC PAW PRINTS...

Special Thanks:

Dear Parents,
The PAC would like to express its appreciation to all GWCS parents for the generous donations of their time and talents throughout this school year, and we look forward to continued collaborative efforts at our unique and wonderful school!

Community Service:

Ronald McDonald House
Thank you to all students and parents who represented GWCS for weekly community service at Ronald McDonald House. The RMH staff never fails to let us know how much our contributions are appreciated, and are always proud to tell their guests that GWCS students prepared their meals!

HELP NEEDED:

Fundraising Committee needs Volunteers for the 2015/16 school year!
The Fundraising committee is in charge of the Annual Fund, which raises money for the GW Community School Foundation Scholarship Program, and the Online Auction, our largest fundraiser.  The auction raised over $15K in 2015, and all funds go towards student activities (example:  The amazing OBX trips!) and school wide technology (example:  moving to the Cloud this year, projectors and speakers for classrooms).  Every dollar raised goes a long way towards adding value to our students!

We are looking for volunteers for the fundraising committee.  The auction committee will "meet" via email a few times this summer to work on strategy for the auction.  If you have any experience working in fundraising, or if you just want to try something new, please contact me at DeiadreRauch@me.com.  All are welcome regardless of experience level or time commitment...we have spots for all!
