ABOUT THE BOOSTERS

WHO ARE WE?

The Greensboro Academy Boosters is an independent 501c(3) organization meaning we operate as a tax-exempt non-profit. Our mission is to assist the Greensboro Academy Community by fostering an environment conducive to academic excellence, high moral character and parental involvement in order to provide every student with the best possible education. Having a child who is enrolled at Greensboro Academy, you are automatically a member of the Greensboro Academy Boosters. The Greensboro Academy Leadership Team is the board of directors for the Boosters. The parent members are elected every spring. Staff and administration representatives serve on the Leadership Team as well.

 
HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Volunteer. The level of commitment within the Boosters’ organization depends on each family’s time, talents, and willingness. Many different levels of commitment benefit the school. Here are just a few:

  • Actively participating as a member of the GA Leadership Team

  • Soliciting donations for teacher appreciation week

  • Supervising a dance or other social event

  • Baking a cake for a staff member’s birthday

  • Covering lunch duty for a teacher one time per week, month, quarter, etc.

  • Organizing hot lunches that are delivered to the classroom

  • Becoming a moral focus classroom coach

  • Facilitating a reading or math group for children working at or below grade level

  • Copying documents that are used by teachers and staff

  • Providing handy-man type services when necessary

 

Donate. In addition to the donations of time, the Boosters’ organization relies on other donations throughout the year. Look for opportunities to donate food for teacher luncheons, items for social events, books for the library, as well as money for scholarships and to help fund all of our programs.

 

Fundraising. The Greensboro Academy Boosters host fundraisers each fall and spring. We also receive a portion of the proceeds from the Hot Lunch program, Edukit purchases as well as box top collections, shopping discount cards, book fairs and employer matching programs. The funds raised are invested in Greensboro Academy to sponsor school dances, extracurricular programs like Create It and athletic team uniforms, as well as spelling bees and science fairs. In past years, the Boosters has also provided money for the following school-wide improvements:

  • 90 laptop computers & rolling storage carts

  • Science tables for 5th and 6th grades

  • Risers for music program

 

Please consider becoming an active member of the Boosters. Through participating in Boosters’ activities you will learn more about your school and the school community, develop relationships with staff and other parents, play an active role in the success of Greensboro Academy and your child’s education. We know schedules are full and time is precious but even the smallest efforts will have a big impact on everything we do.
