** Please check your supply of cheques at home now, as the common comment that we hear for not being able to complete the re-registration packages on time is: ‘I’ve run out of cheques and am waiting for the order to come’.  You will require 3 cheques total (PPP & tuition).
 
If you aren’t able to attend the AGM and would like another family to pick up your package and tax receipt, we would need an email or written note to that effect prior to the meeting.  Thank you.
