  • Event Summary and Volunteer Opportunities

    Wolf Pack Challenge

    Our biggest fundraising event at GWE. This event celebrates the joy in movement, emphasizes the importance of fitness and raises funds to support our school. Fundraising is not required for participation and all students are eligible for various prizes. Day-of volunteers are needed to coordinate the event.

    Hoagie Sales

    This fundraiser is typically held in November - volunteers are needed to help with sorting/distribution.

    Teacher Appreciation

    This committee is focused on showing our teachers and staff our appreciation. Activities include an appreciation day in the fall before parent/teacher conferences and Staff Appreciation Week in the Spring. Volunteers are needed to plan and coordinate this event, as well as provide donations (typically food and decor).

    VIP Night

    This event is typically held in December/January. We roll out the red carpet, organize cookies and drinks for students to bring their Very Important Person in their life and have a fun evening of dancing with a DJ and a photo booth. Volunteers are needed to plan and coordinate this event.

    Variety Show

    Come show off your talent!  This winter show includes a variety of different talents - from dancing, to lip syncing, to telling jokes or playing an instrument. Volunteers are needed to plan and coordinate this event.

    STEAM Fair

    Students get the opportunity to display their talents in Science, Literature, Art and Music at this annual event. They get to display either a science or art or literature project or perform (music, dance, magic show or anything else). Typically held in Spring. Volunteers are needed to plan and coordinate this event.

    Scholastic Book Fair

    This is both a fundraiser and a great way to keep our kids reading. Volunteers help with setting up books, assisting with book selection, and collecting payments during the book fair. Held during Fall conferences and another time during the spring.

    Fun Fair

    This committee works together to organize games and events at our annual Fun Fair in the spring. They also coordinate with teachers and classrooms to create silent auction baskets from each class. Volunteers are needed to plan and coordinate this event.


    This committee helps to keep our garden looking its best.  Volunteers are needed for coordination of planting, weeding and general care of the garden throughout the year. 

    Dine Out Events

    This committee will work with local restaurants to coordinate a day on which the restaurants will donate a percentage of sales to the PTO.

    Spirit Sale

    The Spirit Sale offers children and their families the opportunity to purchase clothing, etc. emblazoned with our mascot and logo. Volunteers will assist with sorting orders and delivering them to classrooms.


    Volunteers will help by taking classroom photos, proofreading, creating collage pages and “brainstorming” to ensure a terrific yearbook.
