We need you!

Garden Grove is in need of volunteers. If you have time to help us we would really appreciate it. There is always something to do. Your talents could be put to good use. Just helping a child read his AR book is rewarding. It is simple to be a volunteer. Come by the office and fill out a form. You will be notified when you have been approved and can come work. Working together makes us an A+ school. Click here for more information on becoming a volunteer. The Garden Grove Elementary’s School Advisory Council (SAC)  would like to invite you to attend their meetings and learn how you may become a partner in the education of your children
