Our FCO provides necessary leadership to organize parent volunteers in coordination with school needs. Through this organization, parents can find a variety of ways to contribute their talents to the school. Families are surveyed during registration to help us understand their interests and opportunities for volunteering and/or acting as community experts. Families are asked to stay current with Family Crew opportunities to grow GreenWood via our FaceBook page, Friday newsletters, and teacher newsletters/emails. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an area of expertise or a hobby that you would like to share with GreenWood to contribute your volunteer hours. Get involved to GROW GREENWOOD!
Facilitate communication between the teachers, parents, and students.
Improve parent participation in their child(ren)’s education.
Rally and organize parent volunteers when and where needed.
Raise funds for various educational and organizational efforts.
All parents and guardians of children currently enrolled at GreenWood Charter School are automatically considered members of the FCO. Each member is welcomed as a valuable contributor to the mission and goals of the crew. The success of the FCO rests on the commitment and contributions of our parent body.
We love the Fun Run! Students and families pledge donations as students challenge themselves to reach their individual, classroom, and school goals. Money earned through this fundraiser supplies our teachers' classroom budgets and supports funds for fieldwork, activities, supplies, and more! This year's Fun Run will be on Oct 27th. Parens, family members, and friends are invited to come cheer the students on!
This year's Book Fair will be held on November 16-18. Scholastic gives back a percentage of the book fair sales to the school. We use this donation to increase our school and classroom libraries. Make sure you stop by the Book Fair! You won't want to miss it!
We support the nonprofit TerraCycle. In the front of our school, you will see five bins where we are collecting the specific brands and items: -Arm & Hammer brand packages -Colgate brand packages -GoGo Squeeze brand packages - Kroger brand flexible packages (ex. Frozen fruit/veggie bags, bacon packages, cereal bags, etc) -Personal Care & Beauty packages (any brand. Lotion, shampoo, conditioner bottles, etc.) Once we get 18 pounds in a bin we can ship it in, and get points for our school. We use these points to redeem for cash for our school!
