Volunteers Needed

Help Directing Traffic

Hi Fiesta Families! Our FGIS Safety Committee/Parents on Patrol team is looking for help with daily traffic patrol duties. “Parents on Patrol” is a quick way to volunteer while helping make a tremendous impact to school safety. Every slot filled frees up our school administration and staff to work on other important priorities.  For those who are able to assist, the links below contain sign up slots available and future months will be sent out on a regular basis. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Parents on Patrol

Pick up a stop sign and neon safety vest from the front office and help direct traffic during drop-off and pick-up.  We need Parents on Patrol in the front parking lot off Bermuda and at the entrance on 19th avenue. Parents on Patrol help students and families cross the street and maintain the safe flow of traffic. Please check with school staff or experienced on duty Parents on Patrol volunteers if you have any questions about procedures. Thank you!

Host Families Wanted

 As many of you know the retention of quality bilingual teachers is an ongoing struggle. One solution that our Directora has worked on tirelessly this summer is an amazing organization that pairs host schools with bilingual teaching interns. Our sister school, Hatch, in Halfmoon Bay, has had much success with this program. We are looking for families that would be interested in hosting a Spanish- speaking international intern for at least a semester. Please see the flier and email for more information! We love our FGIS community!
