Volunteers will be contacted the week of Field Day with their station assignments and other important Field Day information so please make sure to include a current e-mail address. Please keep in mind that as a Field Day volunteer, you will be placed at activity stations and will be assisting all grade levels. You are essentially the “coach” for your station.

National PTA School of Excellence Program

Our goal is to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being of ALL Gulledge students. Click here to see our March Status Report. Note: Checkmarks bullets indicate tasks that have been addressed/resolved. Standard bullets indicate ongoing efforts.

We can achieve that goal by:

  • Making our school a more welcoming place for families.
  • Engaging families in a way that makes a substantial, positive impact in your student's success and our school.
  • Empower families to be part of school decision-making.
  • Demonstrate to school leaders that PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvements.

In Early May, we will send out a follow-up survey, identical to the one distributed in the fall. We would like your honest feedback in order to measure how we are doing/did. We are trying to make meaningful positive changes for all student's and families of Gulledge.
