Fundraising & Events

We have a few Thank Yous...

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Movie Night in April - the night was a success and we hope everyone had a great time. We love having parents and kids out and spending some time together. We raised just over $700 which is amazing! 


Also... thank you to Mathieu Mazur-Goulet, for his very informative and interesting presentation on Sex and Gender Diversity, as well as to our School Trustee, Lyra Evans and Cayce Ainsworth, a parent who is part of the LGBTQ2S+ community who were part of the panel discussion that followed. We enjoyed learning about the diverse LGBTQ2S+ communities and appreciated the panel for taking the time to provide us with their perspectives and experiences. 

We will post Mathieu's slide show presentation soon! Stay tuned...

mabels labels

We have something NEW and EASY, and we are very pleased about that. 

Are your kids losing their lunch containers, sweaters, shoes - and other things you never thought they would lose? Clear labels with their names definitely help. In preparation for the new outdoor sport season, Summer camps, and (for those very organized!) back to school supplies -- you might be thinking of new labels. 

The Hopewell Ave School Council has started a new fundraiser with Mabel's Labels. To contribute is easy, simply visit their website here: Mabel's Labels and when ordering new labels first type in "Hopewell Avenue Public School (Ottawa)!". When you order your labels a portion will automatically go towards Hopewell School council. It's that easy. 

Thank you for your support - your school community appreciates it. 

In addition to Mabel's Labels, Council will sometimes organize a variety of events (i.e. Dance-a-thons and Book Sales), but here is a list of our annual events:

Here are some examples of how the money raised is used: 

  • Each division receives funds to support class activities and supplies
  • Chromebooks & iPads
  • Grade 5 Cross country ski trip
  • Library and learning resources
  • Yard maintenance & Play structures (future initiative: a new structure for the Kinder yard)
  • and much more
