What is the Kids’ Cup? It’s St. Lambert Elementary’s major annual fundraiser. This event started out as a class fundraiser for an end of year trip 14 years ago. After hosting a hockey game to raise money for students to have an extraordinary learning experience, the school realized that this event would be an ideal format to replace other forms of fundraising.
What do you like best about Kids’ Cup?
As one parent commented, “I love that I do not need to hound everyone I know selling raffle tickets or chocolate bars!“.
Grade 5 Student: “It is a night where you can just hang out with your friends. Your teachers are all in a good mood. You can run around the arena watching the game from different areas. Hot dog day at school leading up to Kids Cup is also fun.”
Grade 2 Student: “I like the puck toss, and winning things.”
