Get Involved

  • Just 2 Hours—It Makes a Difference


    Dear Parents,

    What if we offered you a simple, no-strings-attached way to be more involved with your child, get more connected to her school, and contribute to a “we’re all in this together” environment in your school community?

    That’s just what we’re offering. If we can get every Gwin Oaks Elementary School parent to commit just two hours to help out this school year, together we can do amazing things for our kids and our school.

    If you’re wondering how you can possibly make a difference in two hours, just leave that part to us (and trust us—you can!). There are some parents who have the bandwidth and interest to spend many hours volunteering, and we’re grateful for those who can do that. But the 2 Hour Power volunteer pledge program emphasizes that any and all help makes a huge difference for schools, and throughout the year we’ll have lots of ways to pitch in for short spurts.

    As you’ll see from the included interest survey, we’re happy to help you get involved in any way that works for your schedule and interests. What would you like to do? When would you like to do it? We’ll gladly work with you to find a way that you can help—involvement is for everyone.

    We’d value your two hours, and we promise that there’s no obligation beyond this commitment. If you’d like to do more, that’s wonderful! But it won’t be expected of you.

    Participating in our 2 Hour Power pledge program is easy. Simply fill out the pledge form and interest survey and return them to school with your child. We’ll then be in touch with opportunities that fit your interests and availability.

    Together, we can make a huge difference in our school! As always, please feel free to call or email if you have any questions or concerns.
