Parent volunteers are always welcome to make our events a success. Please contact us if you would like to help!
UPCOMING FUNDRAISING EVENTS
KHPS School Council needs your help!
Mark your calendars! KHPS School Council is planning an exciting event in March:
March 30 – Bingo Night! (adults only event at the Legion)
BUT…. In order to make these events a success we need your help!
We need three types of help for Bingo Night:
Bingo Night Volunteers – While the Legion members will be organizing the Bingo itself, we need your help to run the canteen. With enough people devoting just an hour to helping out we can all enjoy some bingo!
Raffle Donations – As part of the Bingo night there will also be a silent auction for which we need items. These items can be donations of goods or gift cards in the $20 to $25 range. If you are able to donate something or are able to solicit a donation from a local business or establishment, please let us know.
Sell Bingo Tickets – We have 80 tickets for the Bingo Night event to be sold! The event is open to the broader community so please promote the event and consider selling tickets to friends, family or colleagues!
If you are able to help with Bingo Night as a volunteer or with donations or to order Bingo Tickets, please contact Trina Simmonds: firstname.lastname@example.org

Movie Night was on Friday Feb 22, 2019!
Thank you for your participation and support!
Thank you to all families who joined for our events last year!
Our year end BBQ is on June 22nd 2018
We are pleased to feature a variety of food trucks with fare appealing to all taste buds. There will be free face painting, live entertainment, and plenty of other activities.
Ottawa Fire and Police vehicles will also be on site for exploration. Be sure to visit our family photo booth where, for $5, a professional photographer will take your family’s photo against a stunning backdrop. This will be a wonderful keepsake and is sure to become an annual KHPS tradition!
All proceeds from this event will go toward School Council’s fundraising for our playground.
See you all there!

Over $1000 raised for KHPS library at November fundraiser
It was standing room only as families gathered to hear the sweet voices emanating from the Highlands choir at Chapters Kanata on November 6th.
In the first fundraiser of the year for the School Council, we raised $1003.23 which will be used to purchase books for the school library.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to all the students and school community members for joining us on a busy weeknight and supporting this event. With over 250 people stopping by through the course of the evening, it also turned out to be an unexpected occasion for families to connect with one another.
