Join the Gates Family Association (GFA)
The Gates School is currently accepting names of Gates family members that would like to be involved in the Gates Family Association. Executive Committee Member positions and Committee Member positions are listed below. We welcome all names of those that are interested in serving for the 2022-23 school year, although the commitment will begin this Spring as we get the GFA started.
The Gates School will strive to create a diverse and balanced roster of committee members that accurately represent our school’s demographic. Our goal is to see that every parent and/ or legal guardian has a voice on the GFA and is given the chance to become actively involved in enriching the educational opportunities at our school. The time commitment for the committees are approximately 1-3 hours per month (Committee Member), and 2-4 hours per month (Executive Committee).
The Gates School Family Association will strive to improve the education of every child. The GFA will work to make the school safer, the learning environment more productive, and will seek to have a positive impact on all children at The Gates School. All GFA fundraising efforts, activities, meetings, social media pages and communications are properly sanctioned and approved by the School.
