Parent and Community Association Committees 2019-20
Guilford Campus Library (headed by Sally Stephens) - volunteer opportunities include reading to younger students, coding new books, shelving books, creating book displays, and checking-out books to students. Volunteers can sign up for a weekly slot, come in when time allows, or be available on an as-needed basis.
Book Fair (headed by Kelly McCallum) - coordinates with Carolyn Vallejos (Head of Lower School) in planning, coordinating, and organizing the Guilford Campus book fairs.
Teacher/Staff Appreciation (headed by Tamara Blackwell) - The primary focus of this committee is to coordinate and implement functions and events to show our amazing teachers and staff at NGFS how much we appreciate all that they do for our children. Examples of such events are the annual staff appreciation lunches, the dessert lottery, and snacks at monthly staff meetings. The committee also functions to brainstorm new ideas for ways to show our teachers and staff that they are appreciated.
School Spirit/Logo Wear (headed by Kaila Bullock) - The purpose of this committee is to brainstorm and plan activities, events, and other methods of promoting and encouraging school spirit. As a component of school spirit, the committee will also participate in the promotion, inventory management, and sale of NGFS Logo Wear items in coordination with the Communications office.
PCA Community Outreach Committee (headed by Jim Bassett): The purpose of this committee is to connect the PCA Board to the various components of the PCA community and to promote connection, camaraderie, and unity within the PCA community. Brainstorming and implementing social and service opportunities as well as ways to better educate the community about the PCA will be undertaken. Fun will be had!
Simple Fundraising (headed by Wes Armstrong) - this committee will aid the community in identifying and capitalizing upon easy national and local fundraising opportunities for the school. These include programs such as Box Tops for Education, Amazon Smile, Harris Teeter Together in Education, etc. The committee may also research and apply for small grants that might be available for specific programs.
Care and Concerns (headed by Amanda Toomey) - The purpose of this committee is to initiate, plan, and organize responses to intermittent needs and concerns that may arise within the community. Examples of types of responses could range from cards or gifts to express sympathy or support up to meal and transportation support for families experiencing more complex needs.
Concessions (headed by Scott Jurek) - the athletic department benefits greatly from having a group of parents willing to fill some of the concessions and admissions slots during athletic events in order to free-up the parents of athletes participating in that particular event to be able to watch their child play rather than manning concessions. This is a great and fun way to meet members of the NGFS community while helping the school.
Fall Unity Festival/5K Run with Friends (headed by Catherine Clawson) - Volunteers on the FUF committee will help plan this exciting Fall event with the PCA. This committee is for the purpose of planning the event. Volunteers for the working the actual day of the event will be sought through a separate SignUpGenius.
