Volunteers are Welcome!

Be a GMS Mentor

Have you ever wanted to volunteer? Have you ever wanted to make a difference in the life of a middle schooler? GMS is looking for community members who would be interested in becoming a part of our Titan TEAM Mentoring program.  We need volunteers to help us provide support to an incredible group of kids at Glenwood Middle School. We are looking for parents, retired teachers and other community members to spend time with our students in a variety of settings.  This may include working with a small group of students who need to complete assignments or spending time connecting with students through lunch, study hall time or during their Titan Power Hour.

 

If you are interested or know someone who would like to be a volunteer for our Titan TEAM Mentoring program, please contact Christine Lehnen at clehnen@bcsd5.org or call 483-2481.

GIS/GMS PTO

The GIS/GMS PTO is a group of volunteers dedicated to bolstering the educational experience at Chatham’s intermediate and middle schools.  The GIS/GMS PTO organizes educational projects, acts as the liaison between parents and teachers, and raises funds to support the schools. YOU are a PTO member by virtue of having a child(ren) enrolled in the schools. Families can follow us on Facebook at GIS GMS PTO  and follow us on twitter @GISGMSPTO.

Titan Troops Special Operations

The Titan Troops program wants to help students by meeting additional needs, particularly those that can have a lasting impact on one’s identity development, self-esteem, and ability to successfully focus on academic endeavors without unnecessary or negative distraction and worry.

 

These needs may include, but are not limited to the following items: school supplies that need replenished, replaced, or
purchased for a class project, clothing/undergarments, shoes, hygiene products, haircuts, equipment that would allow a
student to participate in a sport they otherwise would be unable to, funds to be able to purchase an occasional ala carte item
at lunch, etc. To many adolescents, these needs are routinely taken care of and rarely thought about, but to others, they are
secondary needs that may go unmet when food, shelter, and healthcare are competing priorities. Read more here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TPX3oP2BHRKYpjGQ27-Oawhp-LhDFJ1z/view?usp=sharing
