Council Welcome Letter 2019-20

September 2019

Dear Families,

Welcome to a new year at John T. Tuck!

​As we begin a new year, we hope you will consider being involved in the JTT School Parent Council. The nomination form is now online, and located under the School Council Tab on our school website http://jtt..hdsb.ca.

School Council provides parent feedback to our staff and teachers, coordinates support programs, organizes events like the Dance-a-thon, as well as fundraising initiatives - pizza lunch is just one example - to finance special programs​ and resources​ at the school.

There are so many ways to support our students. ​Even if you are unable to commit to being a part of our Parent Council, please fill in this​ ​online ​Volunteer Form to tell us how you would like to use your talents. This form can also be found online located under the School Council Tab on our school website. There is also a form for volunteering specifically in the Library Learning Commons, linked here and on the school website.

All volunteers must have a Police Check with Vulnerable Sector Search on file at the office. This year, volunteers who have submitted their police check will also need to complete an offence declaration form found here. It will also be copied and sent home with families in the first day package, as it does need to be signed.​

Our first School Council meeting will be held on Monday October 7, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in the Library Learning Commons. If you are interested in joining as a voting member, be sure to complete the nomination form by September 23, 2019 . All non-voting parents are always welcome to attend these meetings as well.

We wish you a happy and fulfilling year of learning and growing at John T Tuck PS.

John T Tuck School Council
