The Friends of Hidden Valley School focus on fundraising initiatives in order to enhance the educational experiences for Hidden Valley School students. Support of parents, either through participating in our parent society meetings, planning and events, or through contributions to the fundraising efforts, is greatly appreciated. Your time is valued, whether you can attend a single meeting, offer an hour to organize or set-up an event, or help coordinate fundraising; no contribution is too small!
Fundraising supports areas such as:
- COVID-19 safety supplies
- Kananaskis in the classroom
- Artists in Residence
- Field trips (ex. Bussing for Swimming)
- Fine arts performances
- Sports equipment and music instruments
- Dances and family activities
- Technology (iPad, smartboards, headphones, etc.)
- And more!!
Check out this year’s fundraising campaigns that will support Hidden Valley School. These campaigns are also published in the school newsletter monthly.

The local Cobs Bread store located in Country Hills collaborates with Hidden Valley School for fundraising throughout the year. Just mention you’d like to support Hidden Valley School and 5% of your purchase will be donating back to the school. We also run a special annual campaign during the month of April for Hot Cross Buns. School council also receives $2 from the sale of each bag of hot cross buns sold during the Easter hot cross bun fundraiser as well as 5% back from the total order amount.
Hidden Valley School Council is happy to announce we are offering our Purdys chocolates campaign in time for the holidays!

Order deadline is November 29. We are hoping to offer pick up for these orders on December 14. An email will go out prior to the pick up date to confirm! Pick-ups will happen near the school, and we can work with your schedule to ensure you get your order!
Once a month we build community spirit by celebrating our school and all of the amazing students and staff that make HVS such a great place to learn and grow. Students are encouraged to show their school spirit by dressing up in the special theme of the day or wearing their school shirts (or alternately any blue shirt). School shirts are available for purchase through School Council for $15.
This year we will be offering either a chip day or popcorn day fundraiser in conjunction with Spirit Days. Our first Spirit Day will be a Blue Shirt Day on Friday, October 14th and volunteers will be selling chips to students.
Chips can be purchased in school for $0.50 each on Spirit Day (maximum 2 bags/child). Please note, teachers and staff are not responsible for any money that is lost or forgotten at home and will not be making calls to parents.
Popcorn must be ordered in advance via Healthy Hunger. When you register for a free Healthy Hunger account you will be able to see our available event dates. You may choose to place all your orders at once or order individually at any time up until the deadline date. Please note there is a small processing fee each time you place an order in the system. Email reminders will be sent prior to each deadline to ensure you don’t miss out as orders will not be accepted after the deadline.
*Returning users will need to log in and re-register their student(s) in their account as Healthy Hunger resets its system each school year.
Chip Days (Bring $0.50 or $1.00 to school on these days. Maximum 2 bags/child)

*Kindergarten students that do not attend on these Friday mornings will have their popcorn distributed one day earlier when they attend class on Thursday.
Spirit Day Wind-Up
We are excited to bring back Fun Lunch for students in Grades 1 - 3. A portion of the proceeds from each Fun Lunch order come right back to our School Council to help support field trips, in-school residencies, technology and other extra learning resources. Volunteers are needed for Fun Lunch events and many other School Council initiatives. Please consider how you can get involved.
We will be taking Fun Lunch orders via Healthy Hunger. When you log into your account you will be able to see all events for the year. You may choose to place all your orders at once or order lunches individually at any time up until the deadline date. Please note there is a small processing fee each time you place an order in the system. Email reminders will be sent prior to each deadline to ensure you don’t miss out as orders will not be accepted after the deadline.
We welcome your participation through Healthy Hunger if what’s being offered works for your child and family, but please, DO NOT order an alternative through a delivery service like SkipTheDishes, Uber Eats, DoorDash, etc. There is no expectation for students to participate every time Fun Lunch is offered, so please simply wait for another event that works better for you.
Students in grades 1-3 that go home for lunch are welcome to order Fun Lunch and stay at school for the Fun Lunch day. If you are not ordering for your child, they are also invited to bring their own lunch and stay for the Fun Lunch day at no extra charge.
Fun Lunch Dates
June 15 - Subway
Order deadline is June 10
