MSPTO 2016-2017 Year Review

Welcome to KIS MS PTO 2016-2017

Dear KIS Middle School Families,

The KIS Middle School ParentTeacher Organization (MS PTO) would like to welcome back familiar faces while extending a heartfelt welcome to newcomers to our community. For those who are unfamiliar with us, we are a volunteer organization made up of middle school parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our students. We work hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for all those involved.

Over the years, MS PTO has been planning and supporting various events and school programs such as Songpyun Day, Breakfast on the Run, Battle of the Books, Fun Run for Charity, Jamborees, The End of Year Pizza Party, and many more. It is because of our supportive parents and our dedicated teachers that we are able to offer enjoyable yet enriching activities such as the ones aforementioned. We wish to continue this tradition and make the 2016-17 another successful school year.

Thus we would like to invite all families to be a part of this wonderful organization by becoming members of MS PTO. We encourage you to not only join us, but to get involved as well. Your contribution whether it is financial support or volunteer work can make a difference. Please take your time to fill out the MS PTO membership forms and volunteer signup sheets. You can also check out the monthly MS PTO General Meeting dates, event schedules, and volunteer opportunities from the school calendar, grade chat rooms, and PTO website, .

Thank you in advance for supporting MS PTO and for helping to make KIS a wonderful school for our students! Please do not hesitate to contact us at anytime with your thoughts and ideas. We look forward to meeting and working with all of you.

안녕하세요? 다시 2015-16 새로운 학년이 시작되었습니다. KIS MS PTO는 우리의 자녀들과 부모님들, 그리고 선생님들과 연계하여 도움을 드리고자 설립되었습니다. MS PTO는 14명 이상의 자원봉사자 학부모님들께서 임원진을 맡아서 운영되고 있으며 다양한 학교행사의 자원봉사에 참여하고 있습니다. 또한 교장선생님과 학교 운영진을 모시고 정기모임을 진행하고 있으며, 다양한 학교의 정책과 행사들을 지원하거나 계획하기도 합니다. 무엇보다도 저희 MS PTO에서는 부모님들에 아이들의 학교생활을 보다 쉽게 이해하실 수 있도록 보다 많은 참여 기회와 정보를 제공하고자 하며 동시에 임원진들은 교장선생님과의 미팅을 통해 학부모님들의 의견이 학교에 전달, 반영될 수 있도록 노력하고 있습니다.

MS PTO에는 크고 작은 다양한 자원봉사의 기회가 있습니다. 이러한 기회를 이용하여 아이들과 또한 학교와 소통하실 수 있다면 그것이 바로 MS PTO가 존재하는 이유가 될 것 입니다. PTO 멤버로 가입하시고 각 학년대표 또는 이메일 ( 로 연락 바랍니다. 올 한해도 모든 가정이 행복하고 건강한 한 해가 되시길 바라며 9월에 있을 첫 번째 정기모임에서 뵙기를 희망합니다.
