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.)

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

How Volunteers Help 

Volunteers and their involvement in a supportive role are an integral part of our Kindergarten to Grade 6 programs as well as the day-­to-­day operation of the school. At Elbow Park, we welcome your volunteer participation and invite you to take your place with us to contribute time, enthusiasm, talent, and commitment to supporting your children’s education. 

Through the volunteer program, we are able to work together to:

  • Enhance the education and well-being of our students
  • Assist teachers with non-­instructional tasks
  • Improve awareness and communication between the school and community

Parents place children in our care with the absolute understanding that confidentiality is honoured. As a volunteer, you will see children learning and interacting in many ways. Volunteers who agree to work in the school are bound by a code of ethics, which prohibits discussion of children other than their own.
