Get Involved! There are many great ways to get involved in your school community!
- Help with the Fun Fair
- Help with Pizza Lunch or the Snack Program
- Help run a school Bake Sale
- Join the Eco Schools committee
See below for more information on these and the numerous other ways you can help your child’s school by volunteering. Many of the volunteer options take very little time.
To volunteer for any of these activities, please fill out the form below to reach our volunteer coordinator, Aleksandra Stanimirovic.
Snack Program – Our community is fortunate that we are able to offer all our kids a healthy snack everyday before morning recess. All snacks are prepared fresh daily. We need 3 people each morning from 9-11am to help prepare & deliver snack and clean up. If you have one, two (or more) mornings available per week or per month, it’s a great help to the kids and very rewarding!
Pizza Lunch – is offered twice a month. We rely on volunteer coordinators to help count, sort, create lists and order and organize this bimonthly event; you do not need to be in the school on the pizza lunch days. We also need people to distribute the pizza. More volunteers means less work for each. Last year, volunteer distributors were in the school once a month during the lunch hour for approximately an hour.
FoodShare Hot Lunch – Foodshare provides a hot lunch (for a fee) every Wednesday. We require at least one person to help our for just 1 hour (from 11-12). Please contact the volunteer coordinator if you can offer an hour on Wednesdays. The job involves handing out hot lunch to the hungry masses!
Fun Fair – Fun Fair is the largest event in our school year and a big fundraiser for the school. Kids and parents have a great time every year and it is our single largest need for volunteers. Tamara Kolber and Pam Byrne will be spearheading this year’s event. Find out more here!
Bake Sales and Staff Appreciation Lunch – Each year we have 2 lunches for the staff and several bake sales that require volunteers. We require 2-3 people to help run each bake sale. Or if that’s not for you, please consider preparing baked goods or other food for the school events!
Library – Our library is a very popular destination! Extra hands to help shelve and check books in and out as well as volunteer with our Scholastics Book Fair or read to our students is so helpful.
Class Rep – Each class selects a class connector. The volunteer will act as the liaison between class parents and the teacher. The role includes sending emails, collecting for staff gifts and assisting the teacher.
Movie “Night” – ‘Movie night’ is a big hit with the kids. Movies are shown after school in the gym and pick up is right after the movie finishes. This year we will run it 4 times. The key to this fun afternoon for the kids is having 5 or 6 parents to help settle the kids, distribute a drink and snack (included in the price).
Skate Night – Skate night is a beloved annual tradition, which takes place on a Friday night in January or February. We need one person to coordinate this event, and several more people to pull it all together!
