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

​​

Please contact your child’s teacher if you plan to volunteer at the school. A Volunteer Handbook will be given to all volunteers. If you do not have a Police Clearance Check completed, please come into the office with your photo ID such as your driver’s license and receive a letter to take to the Police Station or complete on-line. No volunteers will be able to work with students without this clearance. This decision is made in the best interest and for the safety of all students and staff members of Olympic Heights School. By working together we are better able to ensure the safety of your child and all members of Olympic Heights School. All volunteers are required to sign in at the office and receive a visitor pass/name tag before proceeding to the classroom.

Scholastic Book Fair

We still need many volunteers to help with our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair.  It is a big event for our school and we really rely on our volunteers to be able to run this event.
 
The Scholastic Book Fair will take place the week of April 16-20th. The majority of the sales will take place during conferences with the busiest time being the evening of April 19th.
