Volunteer Opportunities

Parent volunteers are critical to the Montcrest community.

Volunteers help to enrich our children’s experiences by providing support to teachers and staff, and by planning and executing both school and community-building events. All parents, both new and returning, are welcomed and encouraged to get involved in the parent volunteer community. Your time, no matter how much or how little, is appreciated.

We will update the MPA volunteer opportunities below once we have a clearer picture of the COVID protocols for the 2021/22 school year. 

 

Opportunities

DONE IN A DAY

Over the course of the school year, there are a number of volunteer opportunities which are one-off in nature, typically have little or no advance preparation and can be done in as little as two hours. An example of a “done in a day” task could be manning the popcorn machine one day at recess as a special treat for the children. Please note: “Done in a day” does not refer to field trips, Fall Fair, etc. – these requests will come through class parents. Contact: mpa@montcrest.ca
