Gause Boosters Mission Statement

Gause Boosters encourage parent participation and raises funds to enhance and expand the Academic, Enrichment, and Social Programs that are available to each and every student at Gause Elementary.

Gause Boosters believes that parent involvement during elementary school years can be a key to the success of the individual student.


How can I help?
What can I do to get involved?
I want to help, but I only have a small amount of time to help.

The volunteer program at Gause Elementary is open to any parent, grandparent, or guardian who would like to be involved in their student’s education and/or school activities.

Use our Volunteer Form to let us know how you’d be interested in helping out!

There are several ways to be involved.

One way is to join the Gause Boosters as a Committee Member.
This group of parents meets monthly with the school principal to discuss Booster activities and the budget. In addition, the members of this committee organize and direct Booster events or fundraisers.  Send an email to for upcoming meeting dates and times.

Another way to be involved is to support Gause Boosters events.
Anyone who would like to be a part of an activity can contact a Booster Committee Member or email Gause Boosters at

The Parent Volunteer Forms that were filled out at the beginning of the year help the Booster Committee find parents who have an interest in different events. However, parents are always welcome to contact Gause Boosters if they want to be involved in an upcoming event or activity.

The third way to become involved is to volunteer in the classroom.
Parents are strongly encouraged to discuss with teachers how they can help out, whether it is working with students in the class or helping prepare for projects, art, or activities.
Please contact your child’s teacher directly to find out how and when you can help out.
