Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
Who we are and our mission
The ISO Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is called the ISOuagadoers and was formed in April 2003 by parents and teachers who wanted to support ISO on all fronts: students, teachers, parents, and staff.
Our mission is threefold:
1) Build community. We facilitate building positive relationships among all members of the ISO community, including parents, students, teachers, the Board, and administrative staff.
2) Carry out fund raising events. We carry out fund raising events so that we can contribute to making our children's experience at ISO the best it can be. We generate funds and then use those funds for a variety of school projects which support students and teachers.
3) Be a communication bridge between the administration and parents. We are a two-way link to help parents and the school administration share their ideas, concerns, and comments. We believe a child's learning experience is enhanced when everybody works in partnership.
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 6.30 in the school library. Meetings are bilingual with both male and female participants.
Annual PTA run events include the Welcome Back Family BBQ, Africa Week, Teacher Appreciation lunch and many more.
Our major annual fundraiser, the Holiday Fair, has raised over 15,000 Euro in the past three years and attracts over 1500 visitors each time.
We give money both to the school as well as supporting certain projects in Burkina.
What do I need to commit to?
As a PTA member you can commit to as much or as little participation as you feel!
