Edmonton Public Schools values the partnership of staff, students, parents and community in supporting teaching and learning. Volunteers provide much needed support to our school by working positively and cooperatively with the school team. Volunteers are valuable resources. They offer support in a variety of areas such as field trip supervision, library and attending School Council meetings.
