Volunteer

¡Bienvenidos!

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 both of which can be done through the office by simply bringing in your drivers' license, Military ID, Native Status Card, Nexus Card, Passport, Permanent Residence Card or Provincial Photo ID (we must physically see the proof of citizenship it cannot be sent by electronic means or be a photocopy).
  • Eugene Coste will enter your information into the EPIC system and forward an email to the potential volunteer to complete the process.
  • 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.

 

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.

​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 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​​​
