October News & Events

Critical Need for Volunteers

The Mississauga Branch PA has reached a crisis point for some key positions to be filled.  Without volunteers in these roles, the PA will be unable to put on the International Potluck or end of year BBQ.  

Don't disappoint our children, let's help keep these events going strong.
  • BBQ Co-Coordinator 
  • Decorating (Halloween/December/Valentine's)
  • International Potluck Coordinator
Any and all of the above positions can be shared by more than one person in order to lighten the load.  The participation of all TFS parents is critical to a thriving partnership between school and home

If you're interested in participating, please contact the Mississauga PA at

See What Your Efforts Can Make Happen!

The PA is pleased to have seen a need for fresh water stations for the students and staff, so we utilized $10,000 of our surplus funds to purchase and install three water filling stations over the summer.  Everyone loves them and is keeping healthy by drinking more water and staying green using refillable containers!!

PAM Meeting

If you missed our first PAM meeting last week, you missed a good presentation by Shane about the school's entrance into the Google world.  You will hear more about the Google Classroom and Google sites and docs throughout the year as the IT department transitions to Google from First Class.

Financial Update
We reviewed the financial results from last year and presented the budget for the upcoming year. Last year our Pizza Lunch Program and our Silent Auction were our two largest fundraisers to the PA, contributing $17,000 to our surplus which now stands at $34,000!  

The PA is required to hold back $10,000, but that means we have $24,000 to spend THIS YEAR!  We would like to hear from YOU to find out your ideas as to how we can make a difference.  Click on the button below to send in your suggestions.
