Volunteer Information

Volunteer Information 

The use of volunteers is encouraged.  If you have an interest in donating some time/talent to the students in our building, please contact the school office or your child's teacher.  Volunteers may serve many different roles from part time occasional use to ongoing daily commitment.  The educational environment is enriched by your involvement.  

Regular volunteers will need to have a current BCI check on file with the office.

The things that you see and hear while carrying out your assignments at the school must be considered privileged information, for example, stories about the child’s family life, teacher-child relationships, or your opinion of the child’s actions in school. You should never discuss these things or the student with friends, other volunteers, or people outside the school.

As in any job, you will need patience, understanding, and a sense of humor.  You may see things of which you do not approve. Please keep in mind that there are problems involved in conducting a classroom and operating a school. No one else is going to handle problems in the same way you would. Also, keep in mind that you may not have all the information around which some decisions are made.

The days you come to school will be special days. Your presence will be counted on by both the children and the teacher.

Thank you for your help.
