Executive Board

The Guggenheim HSA Executive Board consists of parent volunteers in various positions as well as three teacher representatives.



The Guggenheim HSA runs many events throughout the year.  There are Fundraising events to raise money to help the students and the school garner items that are not accessible with the school operating budget.  Our Enrichment and Outreach drives enable the students to help our community as well as charities from abroad and teaches them to help the environment. Our Communication Committees spread the word of all that is going on at Guggenheim and our 5th Grade Festivities committee helps the 5th grade teachers provide a wonderful “senior” year at Guggenheim.
