What is the Parent Service Organization?
The Parent Service Organization (“PSO”) is a service organization within Glendale Preparatory Academy. The purpose of the PSO is to serve students and teachers through coordinating and assisting with programs and activities that are critical to the school’s success. Involvement in the PSO is structured according to service committees, with each committee devoted to a specific area of school life. The PSO is led by an Executive Committee comprised of five officers: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Bookkeeper. The PSO is organized by, and functions within, a set of by-laws that have been successfully implemented throughout the Great Hearts family of schools.
In What Capacity Does the Parent Service Organization Serve?
The PSO assists Glendale Prep with the hot lunch program, yearly Bookstore, main office operations, booster item sales, school socials, teacher appreciation, 8th grade Promotion, community service projects, school and sports-related support and hospitality, Senior Graduation, used-uniform exchange, fundraising, and other activities.
How Can I Get Involved?
The help of all families is instrumental to the growth and operation of our school. We ask all families to volunteer in some capacity during each school year so that we can complete the many tasks that are required for Glendale Prep to meet the needs of all of its students. The families of Glendale Prep are a community, and together, we can be a strong, positive influence for our students.
The Parent Service Organization Needs:
Volunteers! We need volunteers to help organize and lead committees within the Parent Service Organization, as well as volunteers to assist with, and serve on, these committees throughout the year. Please join us in making this a great year for your child, and all the students at our school! There are ongoing volunteer opportunities, both big and small, quick and more extensive . . . really, something for everyone’s schedule and availability. The contribution of your skills, resources, and experiences is vital to the effective operation of the Parent Service Organization – but the only true prerequisite for participation is the willingness to put a smile on your face, roll-up your sleeves, and dig-in!
Truly, we look forward to working with you!
