Welcome to ES PTO 2019-2020!

All KIS ES parents are automatically members of our KIS Elementary School Parent-Teacher Organization.  We welcome all of you and invite you to join us anytime this year!


Our goal is to make a great school atmosphere and fun school-life for our children.  We also want to help parents get involved in their child’s school-life as well as connect with other KIS parents.  Since KIS is not a neighborhood school it is even more important to get involved, meet other KIS parents and exchange information.  Also, by volunteering and participating in PTO organized events, our kids will benefit greatly!

All about ES PTO

ES PTO organizes events such as Trunk-or-Treat, International Day, Family Movie Night, just to name a few.  Every year these are truly exciting events that are fun for everyone.  BUT these are not possible without your help.  We need parental involvement to make these events successful.  Whether you have one day per year or one hour per month available, we appreciate any time you have to contribute.

When we sell tickets to events or ask for donations, please be assured all proceeds go directly to our benefit students!  PTO funds are used to pay for author visits, books for classrooms, student scholarships and free events such as International Day.

Get Involved

PTO is here for you.  Please join us at our meetings to get updates about what is going on at KIS. If you are not able to make it to meetings or events that are during the school day, please email us any time for updates or questions and concerns.  We have English, Korean, Japanese and Chinese-speaking board members so whatever your native language feel free to contact us!

We Want to Meet You

No matter how much you want to participate, please come to any event and say hello.  We want to meet and welcome you to ES PTO.

Our first meeting will be Wednesday, August 28th in the Mini Auditorium.  Hope to see you there!
