Volunteer

¡Bienvenidos! ON HOLD COVID 19

Thank you for your interest in volunteering! We welcome volunteers in the classroom, on field trips and with certain tasks at school or at home. All parents are welcome to volunteer. Generally, volunteers assist teachers by providing service on a long-term or short-term basis. Some examples of support service activities are our Student Reading Program, preparing materials for class projects, assisting on field trips, assisting in sports and special events, working in the library and helping with fund-raising events.

  • In order to actively Volunteer at Eugene Coste School, we will need you to complete a Police Background Check (ePIC) AND fill out an Annual Volunteer Registration Form (see the links below).
  • Once you have completed the registration process and have received your security clearance, feel free to check out volunteer opportunities in your child's classroom and our school community.

IMPORTANT! In order to Volunteer within the CBE, you must complete a Calgary Police Background Check prior to volunteering for field trips, special events and within classrooms.

Volunteering Inside & Outside the Classroom

Some teachers have ongoing volunteer opportunities in their classrooms and they welcome all volunteers to participate. Opportunities may include supporting students in one-on-one reading, improving certain skills or even helping with student projects. If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer, please contact the main office at (403) 777-8511 for more details.

(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.)
