Volunteer & Police Reference Checks

We value the tremendous contributions of our parent and community volunteers who give so much of their time and effort to make our schools better places.

Parents and community members are encouraged to participate in volunteer activities that support programs and services and help students succeed.  Here are some ways you can help in your child’s classroom or school:

•        Reading with students who need extra help
•        Supervising children on field trips
•        Arranging material in the library
•        Assisting with sports activities
•        Speaking on topics related to the classroom program
•        Mentoring a student who needs extra support
•        Collecting community materials for a classroom project
•        Participating in meetings and activities of the School Council

Parents and community members who wish to volunteer must complete a Police Reference Check (which will include a vulnerable sector screening). This can easily be done through the school office for a cost of $20.00.

Returning Volunteers who have completed a Policy Check (vulnerable sector screening) through the TDSB may visit the school office to complete an Offence Declaration with Ann Perez, Principal.  To check her availability, either call the office at 416-394-2370 or send her an e-mail.

If you have completed at Police Check with another agency/charity/school within the last 12 months, you can submit a copy to the school office.

 

How to get started:

If you would like to get involved with Parent Council or any of our many committees and social/fundraising events, please e-mail communications@humbercrestcouncil.ca and outline your areas of interest and when you are available (e.g. daytime, after work, weekends, etc.).

If you would like to volunteer in your child’s classroom, we recommend you contact their teacher directly or visit the school office.  If you need help reaching the correct person, send an e-mail to communications@humbercrestcouncil.ca and we can put you in touch with the appropriate Class Parent Liaison.
