Greetings and Happy Summer Fellow Washingtonians!

The GWHS PTSA needs your help!


***Summer Volunteers Needed***

Friday, August 11th, Saturday, August 12th & Sunday, August 13th


In order to make everything related to the PTSA run smoothly throughout the school year, we run two passive parking lot fundraisers every year and one of them happens over the summer.   Most of you have heard of the big Outside Lands Music Festival that takes place the weekend before school starts – Friday, August 11th, Saturday, August 12th and Sunday, August 13th.    The parking lots of George Washington are premier and LOTS of people want to park in them because they are SO CLOSE to the entrance to Golden Gate Park where the festival is held.  To operate this fundraiser, we need adult (and student) volunteers to help collect money and direct people into parking spaces.


PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!  If you are around and could come by for a few hours to help with this, we’d really, really appreciate it!   It is one of three of our biggest revenue generators of the school year and it’s more fun when there are more people to hang out with.   Last year it was a great way for those folks who participated to get to know some of their fellow parents, eat some yummy homemade chili and snacks.   If you think you can make it, please sign up now for a space on one or more of the days by following this link to our Sign-Up Genius for the event:



Finally, with only a few days left of the 2016/2017 school year, we’d like to say a very big thank you to everyone for making this a great year for the GWHS PTSA.  We have achieved our goals this year of creating stronger alliances within our greater George Washington High School, we have supported each one of the nine departments and our plans for refreshing the staff lounge across from the counselor’s department are moving forward and will be completed by the start of school in the Fall.  We’ll look forward to seeing everyone at our first PTSA meeting on Wednesday, September 13th at 6:30!


Have a safe and wonderful Summer!

Greetings Washington High School Community!


On behalf of the GWHS PTSA, we'd like to thank all of you for the great response to our annual fundraising drive that started around the holidays!  We are very happy to report that we surpassed our match goal of $4000 and have currently raised slightly more than $8,000, for a total of around $12,000.  These funds will help with additional classroom supplies and give the Staff Lounge a much needed make-over!


Just a quick reminder that our direct appeal closing date was scheduled for this Friday, January 27th. 


Thank you again, everyone, for all the ways that you help make our school great!


Gung Hey Fat Choy!

Happy New Year!
