Advancing the Mission of our School: Supporting CFIS as a Leader in French Immersion and International Education

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our families, new and returning, in anticipation of a wonderful 49th school year for CFIS.

This coming year, CFIS will continue to focus on maintaining and improving all existing communications, marketing and advancement efforts. From our Notre Monde newsletter to our online blogs and social media, I am honoured to showcase CFIS and the work we do as leaders in French immersion and international education. 

CFIS will continue our commitment to using our marketing budget to maximum efficacy in order to reach as many mission-appropriate families as possible. 

In the area of advancement, the continued publication of the Volunteer Catalogue and Classroom Giving Catalogue along with the broadened scope of the Spring Benefit and other programs related to advancement, CFIS increased its annual fundraising revenue from $130,000 in 2013-14 to nearly $250,000 in 2015-16 with a slight decrease to $230,000 last year. From vastly improved technology within the classroom to supporting fine and performing arts, philanthropy impacts the daily learning of each CFIS student. 

Above all, it is the involvement of CFIS families that forms the foundation of our school community. CFIS welcomes your involvement as volunteers, champions of our school in the community and as donors to bring our best practices in education into action. 

Ensure you apply for an updated Police Information Check, if yours is not current, so you can volunteer at the school.
