Right from the Start
Right from the Start is looking for your HELP! We are needing you to take a few minutes to fill out these TWO surveys. One helps our funders from the province see all of the great work we are doing in the schools and will help support us with continued funding in the years to come. The other one is specific to the RFTS programming that is being done in your child's school.
We know how busy parents are and we appreciate your time in doing these. Please take the time to fill these out. The surveys are closing May 31st.
