Hopewell School Council's website is where parents and teachers can easily learn about Council and all the activities that help enrich the education experience of Hopewell students.
On this site you can sign-up for Council’s monthly e-newsletter, ParentSpeak, which will keep you informed. Council encourages Hopewell parents to volunteer their time and skills, because Council’s initiatives are only successful thanks to the dedication of volunteers. On the volunteer page of this site you will find volunteer positions that need to be filled. Council is interested in your ideas and comments so please share your thoughts with us or even better come out to a Council meeting where EVERYONE is welcome.

School Council is…
Social: Joining Council offers a great opportunity to meet new people. (Parents, teachers and administrators)
Constructive: Nothing beats the rewarding feeling of seeing projects from their initiation to completion and the impact it has on the children. Our committees make good things happen.
Educational: It provides great information sharing around issues in education. Learn about: curriculum, staffing, operations and policies.
Charitable: Every year Council looks for ways to reach out to less fortunate schools in our zone and our city. Whether it is in the donation of goods or funds, social responsibility is one of Council’s important goals.
Political: Council contributes to community issues and has a role in advocating for changes in public education.
Supportive: Council is representative of our parent community and has a role in hearing their concerns and assisting or advising them on solutions and available resources.
School Council is a fantastic way to get tapped into the school community. Being an active member opens the door to countless opportunities and enrichment for our children. School Council is always hoping that more parents will share their ideas and their time to keep our great programs and commitments alive. All Parents are welcome.
