Parent involvement is vital to our school program and enhances the educational opportunities for all children. We have a range of ways that parents may become involved and encourage both volunteering and involvement in our School Council. Volunteering in the classroom, supporting special events and talking with your child at the end of each day about their learning are just a few of the many ways that parents can support the school community.
All volunteers must complete with the Calgary Board of Education’s Volunteer Registration process and the Calgary Police Security Clearance prior to volunteering in the building. The Volunteer Registration Form must be completed annually (school year) while the Security Clearance is valid for 5 years. Volunteer duties will vary depending on the area of the school in which volunteers are assisting and on the needs of teachers.
Fun Lunch Volunteers
Chaparral School Fun Lunches would not be possible without the help of parent volunteers; we would love to have more volunteers available to assist with the next Fun Lunch date. Volunteers typically arrive around 11:50 AM and distribute the lunches to each classroom so it is ready when the children come in from recess; typically, 30 minutes of your time is required. Should you have a current CBE security clearance and would like to volunteer a bit of your time, please let us know by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Casinos represent the biggest fundraising event for Chaparral’s School Society. EVERY student at Chaparral School benefits from the funds generated at Casino events. Our next opportunity for a casino will be October 18 and 19, 2021. We need volunteers to help run the casino.
