    Dear Parents!

    The Thunder Bay Catholic School Board is pleased to now offer families the opportunity to pay for student activities, field trips, sports fees and hot lunches electronically for the 2015-16 school year. The new School Cash Online program will provide a convenient fee payment option that will save time, reduce paper, maintain a focus on instruction in the classroom and limit cash and checks in our schools. This improved efficiency also aligns with the District’s strengthened accounting practices.

    School Cash Online is offered by KEV Group Inc., an Ontario based company that has been our web based product for maintaining our schools’ fundraising transactions.   It is safe, secure and convenient.

    Parents are encouraged to participate and enjoy the 24/7 convenience of paying for their child’s school fees online. We are asking parents to please take 5 minutes to register, by following the registration steps attached.  Once you are registered online, you will begin receiving emails about upcoming events. 

    PLEASE NOTE: If you have any questions during the registration process or while shopping online, please select the SUPPORT option in the top right hand area of the screen.
     
    Many Thanks!

    Barry Quarrell
    Principal
