Sunday, November 7th:  GISW Day of Community Service

On Sunday, November 7th from 10 am to 4 pm, members our school and local community (students, teachers, staff, parents, alumni and neighbors) will gather on campus for our GISW Day of Community Service.  Help us celebrate our 60th Anniversary by participating in one of four different service projects focused on caring for our natural environment and building a stronger sense of community.  Volunteers will have the opportunity to sign-up in advance to work on a specific project team based on their interests, skill-sets, and the age cohort to which they belong.  Service projects currently being planned for November 7th include:

  • Reforestation of Conservation Easements on GISW School Property
  • Creating a Pollinator Garden at the Elementary School
  • Supporting Local Afghan Refugees
  • Facilitating the Return to Campus of Native Bluebird and Tree Swallow Species – Nest Box Construction & Installation

Come get your hands dirty, learn something new, and have fun while experiencing the joy of serving together with your friends and peers.  More details regarding the specific service projects and schedule for the day will be posted here shortly.

Call for Volunteers:  If you are interested in helping with the planning for the school-wide day of service, please contact Advancement Director, Jennifer Precht at
