Dear Parents,
 
In March 2015, TFS’ Parents' Association Executive Committee assembled an ad-hoc Constitution Committee, made up of parent volunteers from all four branches to review the PA Constitution. This marks the third constitutional review since our constitution’s inception in 2001.
 
I am happy to share with you the results of their work.  
 
The committee reviewed all sections of the constitution, focusing on:

  • Providing clarification where appropriate; i.e. adding a “definition” section.
  • Ensuring our current practice is accurately defined, i.e. carefully reviewing the mandate and responsibilities of the Executive Committee, Parents’ Association Committee and regular members.
  • Updating outdated language and branding i.e. Toronto French School and the Mississauga Branch name changes.

The next step in our process involves parent input. Please review the proposed constitution and provide comments and/or suggestions to: pa.pastpresident@tfs.ca by June 28, 2015.

Proposed Constitution

Once all comments and suggestions have been received and considered, a vote to approve the revised constitution will be held at our Annual General Meeting on Thursday, June 12 at 12 p.m. at La Terrasse (Senior School). 
 
I look forward to hearing from you.
 
Sincerely,
 
Tina Bose
Chair, Constitution Committee
Past President, TFS Parents' Association
