GSC Stamford: GSC 2013-14 Volunteer Sign-Up Process - NOW OPEN!
by posted 08/31/2013

Dear Students and Parents,
As we look to begin the new school year on Saturday, September 7th, please take this moment to review the new volunteer sign-up process. We have made significant changes to the process. The most important changes are outlined here.
  • Volunteer Positions are categorized into Saturday Morning positions, Year-round positions, and Classroom Parents.
    • The Saturday Morning Positions are Saturday Morning Helper and Hallway Monitor. The school requires a total of five volunteers for these two positions each Saturday on which we are in the school building. If you choose to be a Saturday Morning volunteer, please note that you are required to fill four of the open spots per school year (two per semester).
    • The Year-round Positions are listed in the attached PDF document. Each position shows a description of the activities, a contact person for additional details, as well as the number of volunteers required for each position. Please review these descriptions and contact the person listed for each opportunity for additional detail, if needed.
    • Each class requires a classroom parent. If you have indicated during the registration process that you would like to be a classroom parent, I will be contacting you in a separate e-mail.
  • All volunteer opportunities are now listed in the volunteer sign-up tool on the school's registration website, Please review the schedule and click on 'Sign up' for the volunteer spots you intend to sign up for. You will be asked to log in with your username and password before you can complete your sign-up. 
  • If signing up online is not possible, please stop by at the registration desk on the first Saturday of school. One of the officers will assist you in the signup process.
  • A new requirement this year is that all volunteers complete the sign-up process by Saturday, September 21st. If you have not signed up for a volunteer position by this date you will receive an invoice from the registration system for the $120 opt-out fee the school assesses.
I encourage you to review the available positions and sign-up for your choice as quickly as possible. All of the positions are important to the operation of the school, and your participation ensures that critical functions are covered.
Please contact me if you have any comments or questions.
Have a great school year!
Markus Nottelmann
Volunteer Coordinator

GSC Stamford: Two Saturday policy/operations changes
by posted 02/25/2013

Dear Students, Parents and Teachers,
(originally posted 2/7/2013)

After conversations with parents, teachers and the Rippowam staff, we will introduce the following two changes to our Saturday morning operations:

School Access: Going forward, the only access to the GSC will be through the entrance at the cafeteria. The entrance at the auditorium will remain closed going forward, unless other non-GSC events require it to be open. This change will provide us with better visibility and control over who is entering the school.

We recommend using the lower parking lot at the baseball field/tennis courts. This parking lot is accessible via the southern access road and has ample space. (see attached map)
Early Pickup: Effective immediately, we will require parents/caregivers to fill out a brief form when picking up students early from school. The form will be available at the front desk and will need to be countersigned by a GSC officer.
As you arrive to pick up your child:

  1. Come to the registration desk, fill out the Early Pickup form and have it countersigned by a GSC officer at the desk
  2. Take the form to the classroom and hand it to the teacher when picking up your child.
In addition, parents are responsible for letting teachers know in advance when planning to pick up students early.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns around either of these changes.
Thank you for your continued support of the GSC and its community.
Mit freundlichem Gruß,
Joachim Petzold, Vice President, GSC
