Who are the Great Scots?
They are all members of the dynamic parent volunteer organization at The Galloway School we refer to, collectively, as the Great Scots. Within this group, parents deliberately involve themselves in a variety of volunteer opportunities that serve to enrich campus life at Galloway.
From arts and athletics to special events and field trips, and everything in between, there is truly something for every parent who is interested in volunteering at Galloway. We welcome and encourage all who are interested to explore the many opportunities available, get involved, and become a Great Scot!

Volunteers are vital to the Galloway community and are always welcome! We invite you to jump in and be a part of it all. Whether you are volunteering to read in the classroom, chaperone a field trip or plan a major school-wide event, the Galloway community needs you!
Galloway volunteers coordinate and staff many programs, from daily activities to annual events. These opportunities include classroom activities, parent education, fine arts, faculty and staff appreciation, special events, the school store, and countless other programs and events. No matter how big or small, there is something for everyone.
The Fine Arts Boosters, known affectionately as "FAB," are a committee of the PA whose singular role is to support Galloway’s flourishing arts programs. These programs include: Theatre, Technical Theatre, Dance, Chorus, Band, Orchestra, and the Visual Arts. Our talented students are both instructed and mentored by the wonderful Galloway teaching staff.
The Fine Arts Boosters make sure the show goes on, no matter what type of show it is. FAB is the "backbone of the backstage," helping to ensure that every job gets done. Whether hosting the GHSA One Act Play competition, an orchestra or band performance, participating in a choral competition, presenting an art exhibit, sponsoring a dance recital, or producing a spring musical, FAB members work tirelessly behind the scenes so that our talented student-artists can focus on their craft.
The Tartan Backers’ Association is Galloway’s athletics booster and volunteer service organization that is organized separately from the Parents’ Association. Its goal is to support Galloway’s Athletic Department, its sports teams and all student-athletes. Tartan Backers work to build community amongst athletes and fans by coordinating special events like the sports banquets, senior nights, cookouts and pre-game celebrations, in addition to operating the concession stands, selling Gallowear spirit merchandise, and serving as team parents and coaches. Any excess funds raised by Tartan Backers are used to support the needs of Galloway athletics.
