The presentation and moderated discussion will look at the role of the board in realising the vision of TFS as Canada’s International School, with a specific focus on the West Campus. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers and we encourage parents to submit questions in advance when you RSVP.

Open to all West Campus parents, teachers and staff, this PAW meeting is the last of three held during the school year. The meetings provide West Campus parents a chance to come together to review and give feedback on PA priorities, progress and the budget.

Doors will open at 7:00 PM and the meeting is expected to begin at 7:30 and conclude by 9:00 PM. All parents are strongly encouraged to attend.

Chinese New Year

Monday, February 8 marks the start of the Year of the Monkey! Students are encouraged to bring their Chinese New Year costumes for the afternoon celebration.

Once again this year, the Parents’ Association is pleased to support this celebration by distributing special red envelopes to the students to mark the occasion.

Valentine’s Day Candy Grams

The Grade 7 girls will be selling Valentine’s Day Candy Grams in the front lobby during the week of February 8. Remind your child that they can order Candy Grams for their friends or teachers — each one costs a toonie! Candy Grams will be delivered after the Family Day weekend.

Upcoming Events and Activities

The International Pot Luck team is busy preparing for this annual event to take place on April 28, and planning is underway for the Fun Fair & BBQ on June 2. Be sure to save these dates! Both teams are eager for more volunteers.

The PA is planning to hold a Used Uniform Sale soon after March Break. A donation bin for clean, gently used uniform items will be placed at the school entrance during the first week of March. Clean out your closets!
