Parents

Parents' Association

At GSB, the personal involvement of all parents in their children's education is encouraged. All parents of GSB students are members of the Parents' Association. Through the gifts of volunteer time and financial resources, the Parents' Association provides invaluable support for the school and helps promote GSB's distinctive community spirit. This involvement gives GSB parents a better understanding of the school, the community, and provides an avenue to get to know other parents, teachers and staff. With the funds raised from its various activities, the Parents' Association sponsors special programs, projects, and events that benefit all members of the GSB community.

Under its by-laws, the Parents’ Association is directed by an executive committee, composed of the president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer, the head of school, and a representative of the school's administration. The Parents' Association Steering Committee, chaired by the president, is composed of the members of the executive committee and chairs of the standing committees: Annual Fund, Athletic Booster Club, Auction Dinner Dance, Fashion Event, Homecoming/Family Day, Parent Admission Network, Publicity, and Room Parents. Additional committees may be added, as needed, each year.

The Executive Committee and Steering Committee meet monthly to discuss and plan events for the GSB community. Meetings take place the first Wednesday of each month, after drop-off, in the Conger Alumni House.

For information on our Parents' Association events please see the individual event tabs, which are updated frequently with information about each event. To reach an Executive Committee member with a question or suggestion, please contact Jennifer Doherty. To learn more about Parents' Association happenings please see the most recent weekly newsletters.

The Parents’ Association strongly encourages all GSB parents to attend and support our events and efforts. We welcome new volunteers so if you would like more information on the various volunteer opportunities or would like to work on an event or committee, please complete the online volunteer form. A member of the Executive and Steering Committees will contact you.
