Volunteering in your child’s school is a great way to be involved in your child’s education and at Glenmeadows School. There are many opportunities where volunteers are needed. You may choose to become a room parent or a coordinator of a program or volunteer in a more casual way. Your contributions in the classroom can involve listening to a child read, tutoring, giving special assistance, sharing talents and helping out with special events. Current research shows that the parent involvement in their child’s school has a significant impact on their child’s achievement.
The Calgary Board of Education requires all of its volunteers to be screened through Calgary Police Services. Please obtain the screening form from the office. You will not be able to volunteer until you have completed the form, so please get your form in as soon as you can! If you’ve had the police check done previously at another school, please see the Secretary to be sure you are included on our list. You may just need to register as a volunteer this year. The police screening is good for five years and takes about three weeks to process.
Please contact the office if you would like to consider volunteering in order to get your security clearance and then signup on our volunteer platform by clicking the following button:
