Hi Everyone,

I want to thank all those members who were able to participate in the AGM last week. This is an important function for a non-profit like our school and your contributions are greatly appreciated.

For those who use TTC Line 1 to come in, a gentle reminder that will be no service between Lawrence and St Clai, so please plan accordingly:

Closure St Clair to Lawrence

For those driving please check the Road Restrictions Map. https://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly?vgnextoid=83f6e69ae554e410VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD

We are also expecting a wet Saturday so please remember your umbrellas!

See you Saturday and have a spoooooky Halloween everyone!

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick follow on the AGM announcement made prior. It is important that as many people attend as possible. All students, teachers, parents, and any member of our school community areconsidered an organization member. We will ask people to sign in at the AGM to confirm attendance. We have published some information and forms at the following site : http://bit.ly/tjls-agm2017

If you cannot attend please fill out a proxy form and assign your vote to someone you trust and make sure they are aware. We will be collecting proxy forms at the beginning of the AGM and you can leave them at the staff office prior as well.

Further, we are also always seeking new board members and volunteers to help with the activities of the school. If you are interested in becoming a board member please review the description of the board and fill out a nomination form. If you are interested in volunteering in either the Special Events or Communications Committees, please let us know!


Thanks and have a great week!

Kris

2017 Registration

Hello everyone!

I hope you are having a great long weekend. School starts soon and we are all very excited about the new school year. I just want to make sure everyone remembers that registration day is this coming Saturday, Sept 9th. We are seeking volunteers to help with the direction of people unfamiliar with the process. If you wish to help please come to the gym early (9 am) and report to the Registrar or Principal.

If you haven’t registered yet please remember to go to the registration website [ http://tjls.ca/?page_id=165 ] and print out the appropriate form. Please fill it out and bring it with you on registration day.

Registration will be in the gym, which is located at the bottom floor of the school. Take either the west or east staircase to the lowest level and follow the corridor to the center of the building. Access is via the boys locker room. Registration starts at 09:30 and we'd like to get everyone in by 11 o'clock in order to finish on time. We are aiming for doors closing at 11 so please plan accordingly.

Here are some notes regarding Saturday that could be helpful.

Books:
Books are in addition to Tuition but can be paid at the same time. You may wish to check with table supplying books first before proceeding to settle your tuition to make the process quicker.

We are just a little over a month away from registration. If you have early registration deposit paid we do recommend coming in on Registration day to deal with your balance payment. Usually we find that 10 AM is a bit slow so it might be a good time to accommodate early registration paperwork.

Please note that for children's classes we are currently full. Please see the registration page for information on waitlists.


Further information on Registration dates, fees, and payments can be viewed on the registration page at [ http://tjls.ca/?page_id=165 ] which is kept up to date with the latest information

Registration is on Sept 9th. We understand that its still a few weeks away and it might be hard to remember. Please note that it is available on the school calendar [ http://tjls.ca/?page_id=192 ] which can be added to your outlook or google calendar.

Further we will be updating info and reminding people on our mailing list and social media sites:
