Dear Parents/Guardians,


It is hard to believe that it is already the month of May!  This month begins with the Grade 5 Fundraising Breakfast this Saturday from 8am-11am at the Kiwanis Centre.  Hope you can join us and support their efforts as the raise funds for their end of year trip.

As a follow up to the spring fundraiser organized by our Home and School Association, we are happy to let you know that students raised approximately $1000 by reading and getting sponsors. The Home and School will use these funds to help with school agenda costs.  A big thank you to our Home and School Association and to all those who took part as readers and sponsors!  They would also like you to know about another initiative they have taken to help our school. The following will explain….


Do you shop online or plan to?  If you said YES, we hope you can help!


SIMPLY By shopping through our fundraiser link, Flip Give will give back to Hillsborough Elementary a percentage of your purchase total.


It is really as simple as starting at our link, then you carry on shopping at your favorite stores, such as Sports Check, Indigo/Chapters, Walmart, Amazon, Nike, Starbucks, Under Armour and so many more.


The students at Hillsborough Elementary thank you in advance for starting your shopping experience through this link:



One final note, the warmer weather is coming which means summer attire.  Flip flops are not appropriate outdoor footwear at school.  The play area is uneven in places and we often use the field for outdoor gym classes where shoes with support are needed.

Thank you.
