Friendly Reminder: Fundraising Contribution
A letter has been sent home with your child regarding a new initiative the John English School Advisory Council is undertaking this year. We are asking any families that would not like to participate in the school fundraisers throughout the year pay a $30 per family ‘fundraising contribution’ to help support school programs that include skating, Scientists in the School and the Ukelele program. Any amount is greatly appreciated and the School Advisory Council thanks you for your support. There is also a small survey on the back of the page that we kindly ask for you to fill out and return to the school. The contribution and forms are due tomorrow, Tuesday October 1st.
Some of you are wondering if tax receipts are available for the Fundraising Contribution. Please note that if you would like to receive a Tax Receipt for your contribution (amount must be $25 or higher), you must do the following:
- Make sure your cheque is made out to the Toronto District School Board – John English JMS
- Name and address must be on the cheque
- The SAC will record all Tax Receipt requests, and follow up with the TDSB, to make sure that you receive it.
Please send any further questions to firstname.lastname@example.org

A Message from the Parent Safety Program:
PLEASE use the Kiss N’ Ride area in the main school parking lot to drop off your kids and DO NOT drop or pick up anywhere on George Street, Mimico Ave or Central Ave dead-end. The school program has been in touch with Toronto Police to get some support for those parents who are stubbornly not using the program, and who are creating dangerous conditions both for kids and vehicles – but we all need to be vigilant. Thanks in advance for everyone’s cooperation and support of the volunteers who run this important program.
If you do not wish to use the kiss n’ ride, please allow time to park your car legally and walk to school with your child.
