Volunteer

Volunteering at Valley Creek School

Volunteers are organized early in the school year. All volunteers are required to complete a police security clearance and sign an annual volunteer registration form. 

Volunteer opportunities include preparing materials or use in the classrooms, completing projects at home, supervising groups of students on field trips, working in the school Learning Commons, and assisting with school events. Our Phys. Ed. Team also requires volunteer support throughout the year for numerous activities and will post these requests on their blogs each month.

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.)

Taking a moment of silence to remember and honour our veterans. The ones who made it home and the one who did not. #LestWeForget #IndigenousVeteransDay #RemembranceDay #WeAreCBE https://t.co/5s6tZ4AckQ

A HUGE thank you to ward 3 counsellor @JyotiGondek for answering ALL our questions. Your articulate, genuine, passionate responses allowed this group of Grade 6s to feel heard. #Democracy #Calgary #studentvote #RepresentationMatters #WeAreCBE https://t.co/elCA7Y7bdY

Last week, Grade 6 students 'met' with Mayor Nenshi to discuss democracy, municipal government, Calgary's future, and why representation matters. @nenshi spoke from the heart, and was candid and inspiring! #democracy #Calgary #civilsociety #RepresentationMatters #WeAreCBE https://t.co/noOJMGX0GU
