We love having volunteers at GFE. During the 2020-21 school year volunteer opportunities are more limited due to COVID-19 precautions.
Are you a parent of a GFE Cadet? Ask your child's teacher if their is anything that can be sent home with your child for you to assist with. Things like stapling pages, cutting out and prepping activities could be a big help to teachers.
Are you a member of PTA? Our PTA is able to do some volunteer and support after school hours. We do this so that students are gone and less people can come in contact with others as a health precaution. Our PTA is very active on Facebook. Look them up and ask how you can help.
We are so thankful that Midland ISD started Community Literacy Tutors for elementary schools. Our tutor, Mr. Tally, is recently retired from the Oil & Gas business and is now helping our cadets in grades K-2 build their early reading skills.
Ways you can volunteer off of campus:
Send notes of encouragement to staff
Ask if there is any cutting, sorting and prep work that can be done outside of school
Ask if there is anything you can do to help teachers after hours, on campus, when students are home. Anyone visiting campus must wear a mask and santiize hands frequently.
Offer to help with classroom rewards: Students accommplishing iStation and Imagine Math Goals, Students increasing their reading levels, students scoring meets and master on their exams.
