Quebec 2014 is now holding Tennyson's first ever Online Auction, running now through Thursday at 10:00pm.
Tennyson families have over a dozen items with over $1600 street value - all available at well below market price!
Please check it out! The auction is open to all (Tennyson and non-Tennyson families), so please help us spread the word.
All proceeds go directly to the Quebec 2014 cultural exchange for Lord Tennyson students.

Online Auction Preparing to Launch
Our newest FUNd Raiser is preparing to launch. We are preparing for an online auction and are now collecting items to auction. We've already broken through a street value of $1,000 worth of Auction items!
Please submit more items by Friday so we can reach our goal of 12-24 items for this first (of several) auctions.
Over the course of the school year, we all already spend lots of $ on night classes, entertainment and other stuff. So do our families and friends. But why pay others? We all have something or some capability that others will pay us for!!!
First PAC meeting a hit
Weren't there? Boy, you missed out!
The turn out was great but there were still seats to be filled. Next time (Oct 9) be sure to reserve your spot!
M. Carrier talked about technology use in the school and Tim and Toni gave an overview about this website.
We had a lot of new faces which was exciting and some super new ideas.
Have a voice at Tennyson - come to PAC meetings. The next PAC meeting will be on Tuesday, October 9.

Parents met the teachers and enjoyed dinner with friends at the 2012 Welcome Back BBQ. Thank you to Quebec 2014 (championed by Sue) and to the Tennyson community for their support. A nice evening was had by all.
Not sure what is really garbage?
Janine and her helpers know.
Thank you for the amazing garbage, composting, and recycling station, Janine. And THANK YOU for taking EVERYTHING with you at the end of the evening to make sure it gets to the right place. Tennyson thinks you are awesome!
