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.
As of Dec. 17, 2021, parent volunteers must provide proof they are fully immunized against COVID-19. Parents and guardians can anticipate further communication over the next month with details about how proof of immunization will be collected.
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.
