Campus Life

Gerstell Academy Parents Association (GAPA)

Gerstell Academy's Parents' Association, known as GAPA, is comprised of Gerstell parents who foster good-will and promote favorable public relations on and off the school's campus.

GAPA helps to improve the school's quality of life among its students, faculty, administration, and families through a myriad of ways. All Gerstell Academy parents are members of GAPA and are encouraged to volunteer your time, talent and treasures toward the betterment of Gerstell.
GAPA volunteers serve in many ways through varied committees such as, lunch monitors, field trip chaperones, library assistants and much more. Parents who are not able to volunteer during the school day may also provide "behind the scenes" support or by joining the Refreshments Committee.
GAPA also orchestrates a number of fundraising events to raise additional funds for Gerstell and charities. They include: Field Day, Bingo Night, the Annual Pie Run, and the Gala to name a few.
Please volunteer with this dynamic organization by contacting the following officers:

Rebecca Tapper/President --
Natalie Castaldo/Vice President --
Brooke Murphy/Secretary --
Dawn Prosser/Treasurer --
Tiffany McGinnis/Hospitality and Events Chair --

GAPA encourages all interested parents to attend our monthly meetings, held in the RESH Leadership Board Room, 3rd floor, at 8:30am on the first Friday of every month.
