Family Partnerships

Parents play a vital role in the Gompers School family by contributing countless hours of volunteer time. Many parents give of their time each year in such areas as tutoring, classroom assistance, and helping on field trips.

GEPTO - Gompers Elementary Parent Teacher Organization meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month. This group is very supportive and provides additional resources to our school through fundraisers and special events. GEPTO has assisted in the purchase of computers, software, camcorder, and supplies. They have also contributed funds for cultural arts programs, the patrol trips, the 5th grade party, reading backpacks, and other school-related activities.

Community Partnerships

Gompers also benefits from a partnership with the RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program). These volunteers help with tutoring in the classrooms and work in the LMC.

Every year, St. Peter's Catholic Church and Vogel Brothers donate boxes of notebooks, folders, pencils, crayons, and various other school supplies, and we have welcomed donations from other sources. Other community groups and individuals have also been generous in their donations.
