CURRENT PARENTS

See the "Parent" drop down menu for information on Uniforms and Friends of GALA

CARPOOL

To search for carpool options in  your area, log into your account galacademy.membershiptoolkit.org using a desktop or laptop. Click "Directory" and enter the zip code into the search area. The Zip code search is not set up for mobile devices. There may be some families that are in your area that have not logged their zip code in so also ask in your Advisory class. Also search for zip codes in your surrounding neighborhoods. Many GALA families meet at a central location (a school, library, or right off freeway) for their carpool pick up and drop off.

COFFEE WITH THE PRINCIPAL

One Tuesday of every month (8:30am) is "Coffee with the Principal" where you can ask questions and get updates from the Principal. This meeting is live-streamed. Links are emailed to current parents the evening before the meeting. FOG all-parent meetings directly follow the Principal meeting.
