Consider Being a Class Representative
Class representatives at TFS are members of the Parents’ Association who work to assist the classroom teacher and the Parents’ Association in organizing activities involving their child’s class. Two class representatives are chosen by the teacher/administration to represent each class.
Class representatives meet with peers and branch representatives twice a year: September and April. They also play a significant role in the September Parent Information Evening, held in the classrooms.
The class representative’s responsibilities include:
1. Coordinating volunteers for pizza lunches, outings and class parties.
2. Organizing a welcome event for class parents.
3. Sending emails to class parents highlighting important class and PA events.
4. Collecting funds to support class events and purchasing teachers’ gifts on behalf of class parents.
If you would like to volunteer as a class representative, complete this form. It is not always possible to assign positions to all who volunteer. A branch representative will contact those selected the first week of school to confirm their position and attendance at the first class representatives meeting scheduled for Thursday, September 13, 2018.

CLASS FUND CONTRIBUTION: Teachers’ Gifts and Class Events
Class funds collected via the online consent forms are dispersed by the branch teams working hand in hand with Class Representatives for teacher's gifts and class event expenses. Participation is optional, but very much appreciated.
Throughout the school year, a number of class activities are planned to mark special occasions or events. With the guidelines from the class teacher, Class Representatives will be asked to purchase, on behalf of class parents, food, beverages, decorations and other items for these activities.
In addition, the Winter Break and End-of-school year marks a time that many families at TFS choose to thank their children’s teachers and assistants with a gift. Traditionally, these gifts represent a token of appreciation for the efforts of these valued staff members. In order to facilitate this generous practice, Class Representatives, propose the giving of a collective gift that will be divided between the class teacher and the specialist teachers, whose efforts help our children.
