Are you interested in contributing to your child’s school? There are so many great ways to get involved at Gledhill and we are actually in need of your help for some more than others. Currently, we have 30 volunteers with valid police checks at Gledhill. We can’t depend on only those volunteers each time we need them and we are asking for your participation!

Please review the list of current opportunities the Gledhill Parent Council needs volunteers for. As best we can, we have put the number of volunteers necessary next to it. Keep in mind that even for field trips with your child’s class, you will also need a police reference check.

Gledhill Pizza Lunches – Approximately 10 occur each year and each lunch requires approximately 15 parent volunteers. Pizza Days fall on Friday’s over the lunch hour and the volunteer commitment is approximately one hour each time.

Movie Nights – Join your Gledhill Community in the Gym for a movie night! Pizza and Snack sales to be made. Occurs 4-6 times per year and requires approximately 10 parent volunteers. This opportunity would exist on a Friday evening with volunteer shifts beginning at 5:30 p.m. and ongoing until approximately 9 p.m.

Family Fest – This is Gledhill Parent Council’s largest event of the year and happens annually in June. For this event, we need 50 volunteers completing shifts over the course of this 3-4 hour event, plus set-up and tear down. Please note that the timing for this begins at approximately 2 p.m., but there will be volunteer opportunities up until 8 p.m. in the evening.

Parent Social Night – this is an event held once a year and usually includes a silent auction to raise money for the school. Volunteer roles required here are getting items for the silent auction, ticket sales at the event, assisting on night-of with the silent auction payment. Necessary to have 12-15 volunteers for this event, working shifts through the evening.

Please keep in mind that to volunteer in your child’s classroom OR to attend a potential field trip, a police check will be required to participate.

Now you’re asking, how do I get involved?! Great! We can’t wait to meet you. 

Please click the link below and fill out the form. We ask for your child’s name and teacher so that a police check form can be placed in their backpack for you to fill out. It needs to be completed and returned to the school with a certified cheque in the amount of $20.00.
