The Canadian Home and School Federation
Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week (TSAW) was initiated by the Canadian Home and School Federation in 1988.
The purpose of this week is to encourage parents and the wider community to recognize the personal and professional contributions that teachers and school staff make to children and their education.
Every school has dedicated staff members. TSAW lets them know they are appreciated and that parents and the wider community want to work with them on the same team!
The Canadian Home and School Federation (CHSF) is a national organization representing provincial Home and School Federations, and is the only organization linking provincial parent groups across Canada on issues of common national interest in public education.
The Canadian Home and School Federation is a national, non-profit and non-partisan umbrella organization for provincial affiliates, Home and School Federations, representing parents committed to improving the quality of education available to their children.
Vision: Excellence in public education of all Canadian children and youth.
Mission: The Canadian Home and School Federation, the national voice of parents, promotes excellence in public education as well as the social well being of children and youth.
For most of us, at least one teacher stands out in our memories. Those teachers played an important role in our lives as they do in the lives of today’s children.
