HS Introduction

Welcome to KIS HS PTO 2018-2019

August 2018

Dear KIS High School families,

Welcome back to school, and I am honored to serve you as the PTO president for this school year.

For the past years, KIS PTO has been able to make many achievements. However, this would not have been possible without the help, dedication, and active participation of our parents. This year, the PTO will constantly work to develop the KIS learning environment to help provide the best experience for our students.

In order to do so, the PTO greatly needs your continuous support and participation for our meetings and events. I am certain that just like the other years, the freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors will continue to learn and improve themselves along with the help and guidance of our wonderful faculty, and the PTO will also strive to do our best to fill up the needs of our school.

This year, we hope to facilitate more effective communication between the faculty members and our KIS parents. With better communication, we will be able to cooperate better to make more improvements. We are always welcome to suggestions, so please do not hesitate to contact any one of us. We look forward to working with all of you this school year. Thank you.

Best regards,

Isabella Kyungim Chang

Greetings from 2017-18 HS PTO!

Dear parents,

I’d like to welcome you to the KIS PTO of 2017-2018. This organization has been thriving well each year thanks to our parents’ active participation and dedication inside the school and beyond. This year again, all board members will serve to support in various areas such as sports, drama, music, art show and so on. At the same time, HS PTO will continue to work with school staff to make a better academic environment for all of our students. All this work could not be complete without your full support so I’d kindly encourage you to get involved as either PTO board or volunteers and help the school move forward successfully.

I am looking forward to another fabulous year with all of you.

Best regards,

Grace Lim

Members of HSPTO will serve in an advisory function to the school administration and provide valuable input into educational programs for our students and school.

I’m excited and honored to serve you as the PTO President for this class year.  A new year brings new opportunities and challenges for all of us. The bright-eyed freshmen class with big dreams will be looking forward to start their high school journey on a path of success.

Wherever a student may be at KIS, the PTO will do all that we can to enhance our students’ experience at KIS and to bridge the needs of our students, parents and teachers.
