Maple School Partnership

Since 2010, GPS has been in partnership with Maple Elementary in Loves Park in a variety of ways to be a blessing to the staff, students, and families. If you're interested in one of the volunteer opportunities below or have ideas on other ways we can serve the Maple school community, please feel free to contact us.

  • Back-to-School BBQ

    Each fall around Labor Day, GPS sponsors and puts on a back-to-school BBQ night for Maple families and staff, complete with tasty food, music, games inflatables, and a dunk tank! It's one of our favorite events!

  • School Supply Drive & Wish List Tree

    At the beginning of each semester, GPS collects school supplies and items from teacher/staff wish lists to donate to Maple. Our goal is for each student, teacher, and staff member to have everything they need for a successful year of learning.
