TFS Board Addresses West Campus Parents

On February 16, West Campus parents heard from members of the TFS Board of Directors during the PA’s third and final meeting of West Campus parent community for the current school year. Following greetings from TFS Parents' Association President Tina Bose and updates from each West Campus PA representative, parents learnt about the function of the Board in the governance of the school and had an opportunity to ask questions and share their views and a variety of matters.

We thank all parents, teachers and administrators who took the time to attend and participate in the meeting. The PA extends its special appreciation to TFS Board Chair Mitch Frazer and directors David Marshall and Frank Perricone for their presentation and for taking part in the engaging dialogue that followed.
