Geneva School of Boerne is continually seeking ways to actively involve the parents, siblings, and grandparents of students in the programs and activities of the school.

The Parents' Corner includes links to the school's weekly communications (such as iFYI and WAGs) as well as order forms (lunch, Booster Club items, etc.) and schedules.

Volunteers and GCL

Volunteers preparing some of the 225 sausage links at the EagleFest last December.

We love our volunteers.   They enhance what we do at Geneva.  Volunteers provide great additions to our program by filling the gaps that our faculty and staff cannot cover.  Without our volunteers, we would have to do without these additions or hire extra staff to cover them.  Our beloved volunteers – whether parents, grandparents or friends –serve as art and music docents, lunch monitors, copier assistants, scoreboard and time clock managers, Geneva Community Life (GCL) and Booster Club officers as well as Trustees.

This morning at assembly, our Grammar School faculty sang and performed for our volunteers.  It is their way of saying “thank you” for your service this year.  Afterward, volunteers enjoyed food items prepared by the faculty as well as a time of fellowship sponsored by GCL.  During the fellowship, GCL President Susan Bruss gave an update on all that GCL and our volunteers have done this year.  The list she gave out included:

  • 9 classrooms moved into the new Grammar School building last December
  • 45 families paired with a GAP family last summer
  • 110 employee birthdays recognized
  • 120 gallons of coffee brewed for various events
  • 142 loads of laundry done for the used uniform closet
  • 247 hours reading to students in the classrooms
  • 400 goldfish bagged for EagleFest (the Rydens still have two!)
  • 432 hours of driving or chaperoning school field trips
  • 1,000 ice cream treats served to Logic School students
  • 1,393 hours of supervising students at lunch
  • 15,275 game tickets collected at EagleFest
  • 17,624 Box Tops for Education clipped
  • 216,000 copies made for teachers
  • Over 1,000,000 emails, texts and phone calls in order to organize, coordinate and connect parents

The list goes on, but still does not cover all that our volunteers do for Geneva students, parents and employees every day.  There is no way to capture all of the hours of service and sacrifice that you make.  Thank you for your service to Geneva!
