Playground Fundraiser

Help us build our new Hamlet Hive! 

Help us build our Hamlet HIVE!
Our Hornets need your help - we need a new playground! The existing structure was built over 16 years ago and it’s time for an upgrade! We see a playground for everyone. One that is fun, safe, and inclusive, where our Hornets can gather with their friends and call it their own.
With the support of our School Council and Staff, Playground Committee and community members we have a goal to raise $65,000 to purchase new equipment. We're happy to announce that to date we've raised over $42,000! Thank you for your support to help give our kids new playground equipment.
If you are a business or would like to make a significant donation, please contact the school.

Two Dollar Give Away$2 Give Away. Give a little... we can do a lot! Help our Hornets build their hive. Presented by Simple Dreams - Investing with love.

For the month of April 2021, we are partnering with local organization Simple Dreams to place fundraising jars in businesses and other locations around Stratford. The jars invite patrons to donate $2 to go towards our playground fundraiser.
