Volunteering

Parents! Want to make a difference at Lakeview Public School?

We encourage all parents (and even grandparents) to share their time and skills to enhance school life at Lakeview. We have a range of activities throughout the year that need volunteer support. Please consider volunteering in an area that interests you, whether on an occasional or regular basis.

We also invite you to come out to a Lakeview Parent Council meeting. At Lakeview Council meetings you will learn about the issues and activities that impact our students’ learning environment and opportunities for parents to get involved. You will get information about the school and its programs directly from the Principal and teacher representatives. Most importantly, you will have a forum to share your thoughts, feedback and ideas for how we can all make Lakeview Public School an even better place for our children to learn! See the Council meeting schedule.

Current volunteer needs (please check back often)

  • Pizza day volunteers: Every Wednesday
    We are looking for parent volunteers to come out and help us hand out pizza to the students. We would need about ½ hr. of your time (every 2nd Wednesday at 10:15 am). Email lakeviewpizzacoordinator@gmail.com.
  • Hot Lunches Coordinator
    Our current Hot Lunches Coordinator is looking for a new volunteer to help out for the rest of the school year. This is a great opportunity for a parent who wants to help out outside of school hours. The Hot Lunches Program raises significant funds for Lakeview programs. Can you spend a few hours each month helping with the following tasks?

    • Communicate and plan schedules with the popcorn coordinator and the pizza coordinator
    • Prepare handouts for parents at the start of each lunch term (templates provided)
    • Use the Hot Lunches website to set up schedules for each lunch term
    • Answer parent emails
    • Enter cash and cheque payments received
    • Provide statements to School Council’s Treasurer

    If so, please email lakeviewhotlunches@gmail.com to express your interest – we would love to have your help!
