• National Volunteer Week 2018

    GCS volunteers play an important role in transforming lives and NVWLogo outcomes for our students. Their service spans from classroom activities to chaperones to mentors to campus beautification. The work of our volunteers impacts school, home and community and we value their support. As a way to say thank you, we’ve partnered with the News & Record and The High Point Enterprise to do something special for our volunteers during National Volunteer Week, April 15-21, 2018. National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging individuals to engage in their communities.
