    Below is a description of some of the fundraisers and events organized by Hopewell Council. Money raised is spent on things like Chromebooks for students, Improve w/ Improv, XC ski program, Grade 8 grad, and yard care.

    Pizza Lunch
    Every other Friday is Pizza lunch. Order forms are sent home each term. Juice boxes & fruit roll-ups can be added to the lunch. Lunch fundraisers are popular with students and parents, who love to get a break from making lunches!

    Subway Lunch
    Every other Friday is Subway lunch. Order forms are sent home each term. Six or 12 inch subs, with a choice of fillings, can be ordered.

    Grocery Card Program

    The pre-paid grocery card fundraising program is cost free for participants, as all funds loaded onto cards can be used to pay for anything at Loblaws or affiliated stores. Hopewell gets 3-5% back from grocery cards purchased. This means:

    $5 for Hopewell for each $100 card purchased
    $12.50 for Hopewell for each $250 card purchased
    $25.00 for Hopewell for each $500 card purchased

    Ski & Skate Sale
    The Ski & Skate Sale is held annually in November, and is a wonderful service for the Old Ottawa South Community. People bring in their pre-priced winter sports equipment to the school the day before the sale. The school receives 25% of the sale price and the seller receives 75%. The money raised on the day of the sale supports various council initiatives.

    Bike Sale (Or Anything on Wheels sale)
    The Bike Sale is held annually in April, and is a wonderful service for the Old Ottawa South Community. People bring in their pre-priced bikes, scooters, skate boards, roller blades, strollers and more to the school the day before the sale. The school receives 25% of the sale price and the seller receives 75%. The money raised on the day of the sale supports various council initiatives.

    Children's Book Sale

    This fundraiser is to help raise money to renovate the school library.

    Hopewell Family Beach Party

    In years past, Hopewell has hosted a Beach Party in March, with bouncy castles, face painting, fish pond, DJ music, crafts, floor games and great food! It was from 6pm to 8pm and costs $10 per family or $3 per person.

    Dance-a-thon

    This annual event is held in the spring. We hire a dj, and classes each take their turn to dance for 40 minutes at some point throughout the day. Kids are encouraged to raise funds to support the purchase of new technology at Hopewell. Experience prizes are given out for fundraising achievements.

    The Grade 8 Grad is not a fundraiser, but requires volunteers to help things run smoothly: Check List for Running the Grade 8 Graduation Reception
