Frighteningly Fun Halloween Pizza Lunch

Friday’s Halloween Pizza Lunch was terrifyingly terrific! Grade 1 parents conjured the Halloween spirit with their creative presentation of fruits, veggies and desserts. Pumpkins, costumes and frightful decorations put smiles on kids’ faces — thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this Pizza Lunch a spectral success!

Last Chance to Join the TFS Marathon Club

Tomorrow, November 6 is the last day to sign up to be part of this year’s TFS Marathon Club. This year’s Mississauga Marathon is scheduled for Sunday May 1st, and training will begin after March Break. The fee is $45 per person (adult or student).

The marathon is an opportunity for the whole family to share in the benefits of good health and well-being through physical activity. Participants do not need to be runners — the event is suitable for individuals at all levels of fitness and ability. Note that each family must have at least one parent or guardian registered to participate with or chaperone their children.

The PA will be holding a Used Uniform Sale in the school foyer on Thursday, November 26 and Friday, November 27. It’s a chance to stock up on some warm items before the winter sets in! We are also be accepting donations of any clean, gently used uniform items — drop them off in the bin located at the school entrance.

TFS Launches Alumni Website

Parents who are also alumni of the school will want to check out the recently launched TFS Alumni microsite at alumni.tfs.ca. A collaboration between the Alumni Office, Marketing & Communications, and the TFS Alumni Association, the site provides opportunities for alumni to connect with each other and to get involved and give back to TFS in different ways.
