Dear KIS Middle School families,

Welcome!!! Welcome to KIS new school of year 2015-2016. KIS MS PTO is established to support KIS MS students, families and school by creating and nurturing the connection between them. More than 14 parents volunteering as PTO board members lead MS PTO and volunteer events. MS PTO holds open meetings regularly throughout the year to keep parents informed of upcoming school event and activities. As well, we plan and run many school activities, and serve as a resource to help parents feel a stronger connection to their child’s school experience.

Please join us!!! All parents are invited and encouraged to actively participate in MS PTO. Roles of all shapes and sizes are available and new ideas are welcome. Please visit PTO webpage ( ) and contact the grade representatives or to learn more about what we do and how you can get involved.

We hope all of you have a wonderful school year at KIS and are looking forward to meeting you at the 1st General Meeting on September!!!

Best wishes,

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.

Welcome to KIS MS PTO 2014-2015

August 2014

Dear KIS Middle School families,

Welcome to the new school year of 2014-15! I hope you and your students are looking forward to a great year at Korea International School.

I also hope that you will enjoy being a part of the KIS Middle School Parent Teacher Organization (MS PTO). The MS PTO’s goal is to create and nurture the connection between home, school, and the community. This connection tells students that we care, teachers that we support them, and parents that they are not alone. We have been supporting the faculty, staff, parents, and students with a variety of programs and they will be continued and hopefully improved this year.

Please join the MS PTO this year to help continue the tradition of a strong community at KIS. PTO funding helps offset sources needed for field trips, supplies, supplement programs such as Battle of the Books, Spelling Bees, Author Visits, Jamborees, Music Concerts, The Teacher Appreciation Luncheon, PTO General Meetings, Grade Meetings, and much more.

MS PTO has many opportunities to volunteer here at the school. Please consider being a part of that this year and sign up to volunteer and participate in the various PTO events throughout the school year. You will also be able to meet parents dedicated to support our community.
