“When schools and families work together to support learning, students do better in school and in life, parents become empowered, teacher morale improves, schools get better and communities grow stronger”, according to the National Coalition for Parent Involvement in Education and that is what has been the goal of ISSD PTO.
We have been working diligently to create a strong network of parents so that our children can have a well rounded and fulfilling experience at school. We constantly update parents about upcoming events via emails and have a vibrant whatsapp group where parents can exchange information, share concerns, ask questions, provide answers, and so on in an informal setting.
The PTO continued the tradition of organizing creative and fun events for the students and parents, such as the Back to School Carnival, quarterly Citizenship Days, Volunteers’ Recipe Swap, Volunteer and Teacher Appreciation Days, International Food Fair and Welcome to Ramadan Carnival. We strive to make each event as unique and interactive as possible for everyone by incorporating new and exciting programs and prizes.
These amazing events are successful through fundraisers and donations by generous parents and community members.
A portion of our funding is dedicated to providing support to our teachers, who are the backbone of our school, by helping them through any extra supplies and also organizing class/school events.
Of course all this won’t have been possible without the support of dedicated parents! ISSD PTO thanks all its’ volunteers in helping us to provide the best possible opportunities and experiences to our children. Please join us by simply emailing us at email@example.com!
