President’s Welcome

Cathy Piedra-McKenzie

As President of the TFS Parents’ Association (TFS PA), I welcome you back to TFS for the 2017-2018 school year! I would also like to extend a warm greeting to the new families who have joined us this fall!

All TFS parents across all branches belong to the TFS PA. The goal of the PA is twofold: to build a strong community, and to enhance the learning experience of our children.  We accomplish this through sponsoring branch activities and through fund-raising to fulfill the requests, large and small, of our TFS administrative partners. Recent examples of fulfilling our dual mandate can be found our PA website.

As we begin our new year, I would encourage you to reserve some time in your calendar to support your PA.  This can be done in many ways. First, all parents are welcome to attend our monthly PAC (Parents’ Association Committee) meetings. The PAC is the representative body of the PA. Dates can be found here.

Second, I encourage you to volunteer for a PA sponsored event.  I can assure you that there are many rewarding opportunities available. We could help you find a volunteer opportunity, which matches your child’s branch and your time commitment. Opportunities can be found here!

We are excited this year to be supporting a new community event, la marche d'hiver. This inaugural winter market event will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2017. All TFS families and community members are invited to our Toronto Campus to shop, eat and enjoy music and entertainment in our French inspired marketplace! We hope you will join us!

Finally, we all chose TFS as the best school for our children. We come from different communities, united in that common purpose. Your involvement in the PA helps grow wonderful bonds of friendship for you and our community!
