As you may know, in order to volunteer in the classroom, help at any of our special events or be eligible to attend a field trip, you must complete the BCPS volunteer training annually. This training is now easier than ever to complete, as it is available on the BCPS web site (bcps.org) for you to complete at home via computer, tablet or phone. Please complete the volunteer orientation (be sure to select Glenmar ES as your school), complete the volunteer application and send in to school.  Please allow at least 2 weeks for processing.  If you do not have access to a  computer at home, please feel free to contact the School to Community Services Coordinator, Mrs. Vivian Kerner, at 410-887-0127 or [email protected], or stop by the office to schedule an appointment to complete the training. Thank you to all who have already completed the   volunteer training this school year. Thank you to all who have already  completed the volunteer training for this school year.  An even bigger thank you to those who signed up and volunteered during the Scholastic Book Fair. And don’t worry if you couldn’t help this time around, there will be many more opportunities to volunteer through-out the school year. We hope to see you soon!

  • Supporting the Glenmar  staff in sustaining an effective learning environment
  • Assisting the Glenmar staff with non-teaching duties
  • Reinforcing instruction of the teacher in the classroom setting
  • Enriching the experiences of students
  • Building better understanding of school system objectives among community and stakeholders
  • Stimulating widespread community support for public education and the mission of the Baltimore County Public Schools

Before volunteering in any BCPS capacity (including chaperoning for a field trip), a volunteer must complete the BCPS volunteer screening process, which includes submitting a signed BCPS Application for Volunteer Services.
