School Council Committees:

Budget Committee:
The Budget Committee typically only meets once at the start of the year to discuss and set the budget. The school administration shares needs to help enhance the learning environment and the budget committee reviews and supports the requests. The budget is presented to council for approval. If there are financial issues over the year, the Budget committee may be asked to provide feedback. 
Yard Committee:
Hopewell's Yard Committee is focused on keeping our school yard looking its best. Twice a year they organize a team that rakes, weeds and sweeps the yards, but they also help keep the plants and trees healthy and strong. The committee is always looking for extra hands.
