Volunteer 2023-2024

We need you to help out to make our school a success!  With each parent taking on something during the school year the load is light for everyone, plus it creates a great sense of community that we can all appreciate at PJ.

2023-2024 General Volunteer Opportunities at a Glance

Emergency Preparedness Team

We are in need of a team of parents who can ensure our school is adequately prepared for an emergency by helping with inventory, quality assessment and organizing the emergency supplies. This is an important job and your assistance is greatly appreciated. We hope to be able to complete this job on May 21 but have included May 23 on the sign up in case the job needs a bit more time.

Fun Lunch Distribution

We are looking for volunteers to help with Fun Lunch food distribution school days from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. Without our amazing parent volunteers we would not be able to run this program. Thank you for signing up to help!
We’re also looking for several volunteers who could fill-in when our regular Fun Lunch volunteers call-in sick. If you are periodically available weekdays from 12:00pm and 1:00pm please sign up here.
Our Fun Lunch Coordinator can be reached at funlunch@ecolepjpac.com.

PJ Community Park

Our school’s park was the vision of school parents and community members who came together to create something truly unique and beautiful. From our Garden Boxes to our Wetlands, First People’s Healing Circle and Outdoor Class spaces, the PJ Park stands as a flagship outdoor educational space on the North Shore.We hold monthly gardening events. Maintaining our park and the school gardening program relies on volunteer-led initiatives. When your children participate in gardening at school they feel they become stewards of these green spaces and they take pride in their park. It is also educational and fun! There are many opportunities to get involved with the PJ  Park and you can start by joining the PJ Park Committee. Contact Laureline Balzan
