Benefitting our children, strengthening our community

An Evening at the Circus

All TFS West Campus families and staff are invited to attend the seventh International Potluck, which will take place on Friday, November 25 right after school in the main gym and will run until 7:00 PM.

Buy International Potluck tickets today

The theme of this year’s event is the Circus! Join us under the big top for an evening of lively entertainment and activities, and a tasty international buffet.

Tickets cost $12 per person (children 3 and under do not require a ticket) and are purchased by completing the International Potluck registration form. Each family is requested to make a food contribution to the potluck – details are noted in the registration form. All funds go towards covering the cost of holding this West Campus community event.

Space is limited due to the maximum number of people we can have in the gym, so be sure to register early. Registration will close once capacity has been reached.

The PA Potluck team looks forward to having the entire West Campus community enjoy an entertaining time together. Be sure to dress in your most colorful clothing and comfortable shoes, and to send your child with a change of clothing for the event as it is directly after school.

If you have any questions or are able to volunteer to help with the event, please email the PA at pa.west.potluck@tfs.ca. You can also sign up to volunteer in the Potluck registration form.

Join the TFS Marathon Club

The TFS Parents’ Association is pleased to announce that for the fourth year, West Campus families can take part in the annual Mississauga Marathon! Join the TFS Marathon Club by Tuesday, November 15th to take advantage of the discounted early registration fee.

Sign up for the Marathon

As part of the 2016 Enersource Marafun Program, students and parents will run / walk 40 kilometres over a six week period at our school field. The final 2 kilometres will be completed on race day, with runners crossing the marathon finish line in front of thousands of spectators!

This year’s Mississauga Marathon is scheduled for Sunday May 7th, and training will begin after March Break. Upon crossing the finish line, each participant receives a medal and certificate of completion.

The fee is $40 per person (adult or student) if registration is completed by Tuesday, November 15th. Late registrations will continue to be accepted until November 30th at a cost of $45 per participant.

Anyone that wishes to sign up for a longer distance event of the Mississauga Marathon should email us at pa.west.reps@tfs.ca  as soon as possible. We will determine how best to accommodate your request based on the level of interest we receive.

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.

Sign up today, and be part a TFS tradition of active living!
