Gunderson High


Message from the President

Help build the Gunderson community for your student by joining and supporting the Gunderson PTSA. Your membership dues support PTSA activities:

  • Senior Scholarships
  • Hospitality at school dances
  • Teacher grants to support class projects and supplies
  • Academic awards ceremonies
  • Senior Night
  • Teacher appreciation

Support Gunderson with your membership dues or plan to get a little more involved by helping with any of the school activities. As little as an hour of your time helps! Research has shown that students achieve higher grades, have better attendance and more consistently complete homework when parents are involved in school.
