​​​Volunteer with Us

While COVID-19 Measures are in Place

In-person visitors and volunteers will be allowed in CBE schools only if they are scheduled in advance 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. 

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.)

Students in grades 1 and 2 explored the symbolism of the Métis flag and read “The Giving Tree” by Leah Dorian. They reflected on how the story connects to spirit, heart, body and mind. #CBEIndigenousEd https://t.co/WR61vEMlnS

RT @sidhu_nicole: Our class does a full body scan after lunch recess and choose the zone we feel best matches. Any blue, yellow or red @ZonesOfReg we have a problem solving chat. Ss choose from a menu of calming tasks to help get them regulated and ready for learning. @OSGeiger @Area4CBE @yyCBEdu https://t.co/mfFe0L50OG

Grade 3 & 4 students practiced creating and decoding new words. “This is helping me to sound out.” “I have to think….is this a real word or not? Does it make sense?” https://t.co/zMdP0AAHUP
