Parents have been a vital part of the Greenwood community since the school’s founding.
We offer many meaningful opportunities for parents to volunteer at the school and to get to know other parents. In giving of your time and talent, you will not only provide an excellent example of the importance of giving back, but also have the opportunity to work with and befriend other parents and Greenwood staff.
Volunteer opportunities include (click on a position to learn more):
Service learning is a key element of Greenwood’s program. Parent volunteers assist the school with the supervision of these activities, including our Grade 7 and 8 Reading Buddies program in Regent Park.
We are always looking for co-operative education placement opportunities. These provide valuable real-world learning experiences for students who spend two half days per week at a worksite for the duration of the academic year.
Held in late November/early December, the whole Greenwood community is invited to join us for this fund- and friend-raiser. Volunteers assist with administrative details, baking, sourcing gifts, greenery, décor and set-up.
Held annually in late January/early February, Careers Morning gives students in Grades 9-12 the opportunity to learn from Greenwood parents and alumni about career opportunities in a wide variety of fields.
As Greenwood's Parent Organization, the Roundtable supports the school and fosters a close sense of community among parents, staff and students. The Roundtable facilitates a number of events throughout the school year, including parent socials, the WinterGreen holiday sale and staff appreciation lunches.
Roundtable meetings are held monthly - check the school calendar for details and feel free to join at any time.
We acknowledge with gratitude the Ancestral lands upon which our main campus is situated. These lands are the Ancestral territories of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Anishinabek and the Wendake. The shared responsibility of this land is honoured in the Dish with One Spoon Treaty and as settlers, we strive to care for the land, the waters, and all creatures in the spirit of peace. We are responsible for respecting and supporting the enduring presence of all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. When away from this campus we vow to be respectful to the land by protecting and honouring it. We will create relationships with the people and the land we may visit by understanding the territories we enter and the nations who inhabit them.
