Thank you, Thank YOU! – Volunteer Tea Party – May 16th
Our numerous Trafalgar Parent Volunteers are instrumental in ensuring the success of our school. They assist teachers in the classrooms, they volunteer on field trips, they check late arrivals in the mornings, they organize hot lunches, they help out in the library, they launch many great celebrations throughout the year and are involved in many more endeavours, too numerous to list. Trafalgar School could not manage without them! That is why we invite all these wonderful volunteers to a Tea Party on May 16th, between 2:30 and 4:00 pm in the library. Invitations will be sent out but we hope any parent who has participated in our school’s success, will come and enjoy some time with other volunteers, school administrators and staff.
