Volunteer with Us

While COVID-19 Measures are in Place

In-person visitors and volunteers will not be allowed in CBE schools at this time. This includes guest speakers, sports-team coaches and artists in residence. Individuals are encouraged to communicate with the school through email or by phone. Currently, parent volunteers are not permitted in the school building. However, we are optimistic that we will find ways to work with parent volunteers later in the school year.​

Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.

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​​​

Volunteering at Glendale School

We encourage parent voice in your child's education. Our strong School Parent Council, numerous volunteering opportunities in the classroom and outstanding community building events provide an opportunity for parents to have an active voice and to play an important role in your child's young life.

There are many meaningful and enjoyable ways that you can serve in schools. Here are just a few examples:

  • Help with certain tasks in the classroom, the library, or the office
  • Assist with supervision on field trips
  • Coach a school team
  • Serve fun lunches to students
  • Read with students who require extra support
  • Organize special events for students

BEST MORNING MEETING EVER! We opened our online learning journey this morning by acknowledging the land, and sharing this beautiful story with our entire Glendale Family! It was also so touching to hear the kids yelling ‘love you!’ before they hung up 🥰#wearecbe https://t.co/SDkUQWUN1c

RT @glendale_evans: Read this gem of a book this morning! The kids feel like a treaty needs to start with a promise, and so we spent some quiet time in the garden thinking of promises that we believe are important to keep with all living things. @glendalecbe https://t.co/DS7MfIAftV

RT @glendale_evans: We began our Literacy Workshop this morning with a multimodal choice board! Students have opportunities to engage with images, photo sets, poetry, podcasts, and short stories with multiple options to demonstrate understanding. @glendalecbe #CBEliteracy https://t.co/Mz5pKzXr2d
