Mission Statement

Community Engagement enhances the quality of life in Gloucester by providing information, community service opportunities and resource coordination to ensure everyone is informed, involved and engaged in their county government, schools and community.

Interested in Volunteering?
Petsworth has a great volunteer team!  We would love for you to join us.  Studies show that children do better in school when their parents and community members are involved.  Through volunteering you gain experience and personal contacts, make new friends, learn new skills, contribute to the community, see how your tax dollars are used, and help enrich not only the lives of our children but your own life as well. 

Anyone can be a volunteer: parents, grandparents and other family members, retirees, business and professional people, and college, high and middle school students.  We do require that all potential volunteers have a criminal history background check

To volunteer at our school, complete the form included.

Community Engagement Coordinator "What Do I Do?"

I’m the Community Engagement Coordinator at Petsworth and I’m here for one main purpose – to help the community be involved in our school and get the school more involved in the community. I do this by managing the school’s volunteer program, planning enrichment opportunities for the students, coordinating study trips, speakers and special programs, managing the Full Service School program at Petsworth, and serving as the public relations/information person.
