We would love to include you in the many volunteer opportunities to be a part of the school community: onsite, after-hours, offsite, in the classroom, in the school – there are many ways you can help. Any amount of time and any task you can help with is really appreciated...even the smallest effort can make a big difference.

Each classroom and Grade will have different requirements so in an effort to assist the teachers and School Council we are gathering emails of people who would like to:

  • Be a part of School Council
  • Volunteer for school events
  • Volunteer in your child’s classroom
  • Volunteer for the school as a whole
  • Help out after hours
  • Help with Fundraising through CHEES - Capitol Hill Elementary Enhancement Society

A reminder, if you intend to volunteer within the school, you must have an up-to-date security clearance and have filled out a CBE Volunteer Form and a Volunteer-Council Communication Consent Form with the school in advance. If you are not sure if you have completed these, please contact the school office.

We look forward to creating, maintaining and expanding community at Capitol Hill School.

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
