Welcome to the ES PTO 2016-2017

Dear Friends and Families of Elementary KIS,

The KIS Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (KIS ES PTO) would like to welcome new and returning families to the 2016/2017 school year. As a ES PTO, we organize and facilitate programs and activities to enhance our children’s school experience, build a diverse community, and demonstrate school spirit! Go Phoenix!

This year our ES PTO board members are excited to bring new and exciting activities, as well as continue past traditions. We have programs such as Trunk or Treat, Dinner & Dance, and International Day. These are just to name a few –look at our calendar to see more

For all these great programs to happen, we ask for everyone to be an ES PTO member, by contributing their time and donation. All proceeds go toward future ES PTO events and, most of all, toward our children’s overall growth.

Being a member of the ES PTO is a great way to be involved in the life of the school and provides a good opportunity to get to know other parents and school staff better – and it’s very satisfying to see how the children benefit from the extra activities and programs. With your help and contribution, we can go the extra distance to fulfill our children’s school experience.

Once again, we are very excited for what this year will bring. We look forward to meeting and working with all of you to create a memorable year for our children!

About ES PTO

The ES PTO is a lot of fun and rewarding!

Who we are and what we do:

The KIS ES PTO consists of parent volunteers who develop and host events that extend the education of children beyond the classrooms. Through the development and hosting of such events, we help the KIS community gain broader perspective and unique insights, and build quality relationships. The ES PTO works closely with teachers and administrators.

Many studies show that children do better at school when parents model involvement and participation. Remember, every parent at KIS is a member of our school community; as such, parental engagement is always welcome! We strive to keep the ES PTO friendly and open, and both Korean and English are made available.


The ES PTO mission is to help the people within the KIS community to CONNECT with each other. We host events that enhance relationships and bridge the gap among various individuals and groups.
