Welcome to ES PTO 2014-2015

The KIS Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization would like to welcome new and returning families to the 2014/2015 school year. A PTO is a formal organization that consists of parents, teachers and school staff.  This organization offers families an opportunity to learn what is happening at school, share ideas, and make a difference in their child’s educational experiences. Many exciting activities and programs are planned for this school year, and with your help and contribution, we can offer even more.

Some of the activities planned for this year:

Orientation Day and Popsicle Social: Starting the year with popsicle on orientation day

Breakfast on the Run : The PTO provides a “Welcome Back” breakfast to all KIS staff and teachers.

Spirit Wear : Spirit Wear is for anyone interested in showing their school spirit by supporting KIS teams! The order forms will be sent out in the first quarter

Picture Day: Professional pictures taken at the beginning of the year that’s a keepsake for many years to come.

Staff Appreciation Luncheons: The PTO provides luncheons for the staff to show our appreciation for their great work.

Sports Day: It’s a fun day filled with activities. PTO helps organize with Sports teachers

Book Fair: Fall and Spring book fair is held to purchase books at a discount

Author Visit:  We invite a well known author/s to school to share their work with kids and have an interactive session with kids.

Phoenix Store: PTO store that sells all KIS merchandise and PE uniforms. Please check notice board for store hours.

International Day: An after school family event where all ES KIS families are welcome to come and share food, crafts and other aspects of their culture.

Parent involvement is critical to the success of our organization.  If you are interested in being involved in any PTO events or activities we would love to have your help!  Please let us know what activities may interest you.  Later in the year as these activities draw near, you will be contacted by someone from the PTO with further information about participating in that event.  If you have any talent you will like to share please reach out to one of the PTO members. We look forward to working with you this year!

Please join us for our first meeting of the school year on Tuesday, September 16th. Light lunch and coffee will be served. Typically, the meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month.

Make a financial contribution Each year we collect a membership fee from parents to help fund the various activities. We ask parents to contribute 25,000 won for each student. (If you have MS or HS children, please sign up with MS or HS PTO separately).

Thank you in advance for your participation!

We appreciate your help and look forward to working with each of you throughout the school year.
