Dear TFS Parents,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! As the President of the TFS Parents’ Association (PA), I am excited to continue the momentum and collaborate with you and our school’s leadership team for the benefit of our children.

All TFS parents belong to the PA! Our collective mission is to build a strong community and to enhance our children’s learning experience. We accomplish this through sponsoring school activities and through fundraising to fulfil the requests of the TFS leadership team for student resources that make an immediate impact. Learn here about recent financial contributions made.

We are able to accomplish our goals, thanks to hundreds of volunteers. This can vary from donating an hour of time to serve on Pizza Day (one of our most successful fundraisers that directly supports the Principals’ wish list items), to spending a few hours monthly sorting through donated uniforms and coordinating their sale to families. There are many ways to get involved and meet dedicated parents, who make a difference in our TFS community, with contributions that directly benefits our children. Please consider attending a monthly Parents’ Association Committee (PAC) meeting (the elected, decision-making body of the PA); dates can be found here. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, send us an email at

We are excited to share dates for three of our upcoming PA events. Marché d'hiver, a winter market, will take place on Saturday, November 23. All TFS families and community members are invited to our Toronto campus to shop, eat and enjoy entertainment in our European-inspired marketplace. With its inaugural success last year, Spirit of Spring, our parent evening event will take place on April 23. And finally, our year end and largest event, Kermesse is planned for Saturday, June 6. We hope to see you there.

Being a part of our diverse TFS community, I have established many strong relationships with inspiring parents, and had the opportunity to participate in and observe with pride our contributions at work in the classroom. I look forward to continuing to work with you to live and model our school’s motto: individuals who reflect, citizens who act.
