ABOUT TEACHERS FOR KIDS

Teachers for Kids was founded in 1986 in the former Peterborough County Board of Education by two teachers who believed that a little bit of help could make a lifetime of difference for a needy student. They were convinced that providing something as simple as a ball glove to a student who could not afford one could change that student's ability to participate, make friends, develop social skills and succeed at school. Since that time, TFK has provided over half a million dollars to help students participate in sports, trips, extra curricular clubs and teams, tutoring, and other activities. They also provide items necessary for students' social and emotional well being such as clothing, prescriptions, counseling, help to families dealing with serious illnesses, etc.

 

WE NEED YOU!

The Teachers For Kids executive committee is searching for new members!  We currently have a large number of retired teachers who have remained dedicated to the foundation and we need to bring some new KPR staff on board to keep the charity functional.

 

 


 

 

 

 

Meetings are just once a month during the school year.  What could be better than spending time with Bern?  Please contact us if you would like to help make a difference for students in need.  Please contact

lisa_davies@kprdsb.ca if you can join.

WOW!!! Our first 50/50 was successful beyond our wildest expectations and we ended up with a huge jackpot of $6790!  We made the draw at the TFK AGM on Thursday, June 15th and the lucky winner was retired KPR principal Annie Johnston!  Annie won $3395 and generously donated part of her prize back to TFK.

Thank you all for the amazing support of this fund raiser.  It was so much fun and helped us raise some much needed funds to help our KPR students in need.  Stay tuned for our next draw in the Fall. 

Have a wonderful summer everyone!
