Volunteer at Clear Water Academy
Many hands make light work - and more fun!
Clear Water Academy is more than a wonderful place to educate your child; it is a place where the whole family can become involved and grow! We have many opportunities to come together for fun and fellowship including; daily mass, athletic competitions, parent forums, retreats for men and women, special programs, service projects, and so much more.
Our Parent Volunteer Community is vibrant and active! Parents are invited to share their talents on our School Council or by helping out in classrooms, driving to fieldtrips, and much more. Our parents and students often tell us that Clear Water Academy is like a second home because they enjoy the camaraderie and spirit that is so alive on our campus. For more information about getting involved please contact your child's teacher, or the front office at 240-7900.
Police Information Check (PIC) for Parent Volunteers
Any parent that wishes to volunteer during the school year must have a PIC (Police Information Check with vulnerable sector search) completed annually. Parents who do not have a PIC on file will not be authorized to volunteer with the school. Please note that families that do not live within the Calgary city limits must go to their local RCMP detachment to complete the check. Any families new to Canada will have to wait one year before they can apply for a PIC. New this year - you can complete your PIC online via ePic (Electronic Police Information Check). Once the check has been completed and you receive your PIC, please make sure to "share" it with the school so that we can add you the authorized list of parent volunteers. The fee to have a PIC as a Clear Water Academy volunteer is $15 (discounted rate) and you must pay online. If you would like a reimbursement, you must submit an official receipt to the school. You will require a letter from the school stating that you are a volunteer in order to receive the discounted rate. To obtain a letter, please contact Maria Velez by EMAIL.

Parents are vital to the continued strength of our school and their involvement plays an important role in student success. Through involvement in school councils, parents have an opportunity to influence the delivery and outcomes of school life, enriching our community and building the Kingdom of Christ.
One more way to become involved at CWA is by joining our School Council. Our new Council provides us with the opportunity for an improved process and governance for parent volunteering and involvement at Clear Water Academy. The Council impacts school life by coordinating and overseeing many school events, and the building up of our wonderful community. They also provide input and perspectives to the Administration of the school about education, the needs of our school, and concerns of the community. School Council will help support the mission and beliefs of Clear Water Academy and our model of Integral Formation.
