Volunteer with Us

We welcome volunteers in the classroom, on field trips and with certain tasks at school or at home. Certain activities or field trips would not be possible without the active participation of our volunteers. Contact us about ways you can volunteer with our school.

Visit the CBE website for more information on volunteering, including the required registration and Police Information Check. (Please note, guest speakers or visitors to the school, and parents/guardians assisting their own child only are not considered to be volunteers and do not require a police information check.) 

Volunteering for an Off-Site Activity

If you want to volunteer for an off-site activity, please keep in mind: 

  • Volunteers on an activity are considered representatives of the Calgary Board of Education and are subject to the same expectations as staff

  • Volunteers are subject to the requirements of CBE Administrative Regulation 5003 – Volunteers, which includes an application and a police security screening check

  • Volunteers are covered by the CBE’s liability insurance policy while performing their assigned duties

  • Volunteers are covered by WCB while performing their duties

  • Volunteers receive direction from and are accountable to the teacher-in-charge

Swimming Dates May 6-10 & June 10-21 / Call for Volunteers

Our swimming dates are fast approaching:

May 6 - 10 - Kindergarten
June 10 - 21 - Grade 1 - 6

Please block off these dates if you are able to come and volunteer! We always seem to be extra short of male volunteers to help in the boys change room. If there are any dads, uncles or grandpas who would be willing to help us out on these dates, and who don’t have a current security/ police clearance through the school, PLEASE consider coming in over the next few weeks so we can get the ball rolling on your clearance. It can take 4-6 week to be approved. Thank you in advance!
