New Parent Information

How will you know what’s happening at the school?

Starting in late spring, you will start receiving our principals’ weekly Communiqué, which includes information about school programming, events and updates. Information is posted on our Branch sites, and this is where you will find your child’s class teacher website. As well, our Head of School sends his bi-monthly blog, as does our Deputy Head of Community Engagement. In May and June, the Admissions Office sends emails to new families with key information for the coming year. In August, you will receive an emailed back-to-school information package with everything you need to know before school starts, including online consent forms that need to be completed.

You are a member of the TFS Parents’ Association

The goal of our PA is to benefit our children and strengthen our community. We strongly encourage attendance at the PA’s meetings, becoming a class rep so that you can meet other families in your child’s grade, involvement as a volunteer, and participation in the PA’s events throughout the year.
