The PTA is involved in many regular and ad hoc activities around campus.
1. Parent Class Representatives (PCR) The PCR liaises with the parents in the class by keeping them informed of school activities and events. The PCR is a resource for times when the teacher may request assistance or support.
2. Fund Raising Events Each year the PTA holds several major events, including:
- Welcome to Ouaga Potluck (September)
- Holiday Fair (December)
- African Night (March)
- Teacher Appreciation Month activities (April)
In addition to these big events, there smaller events like Trivia Night, Bollywood Night, Spring Carnival and others which change from one year to the next.
This year, the PTA helped out with SOFANWET which is a softball tournament that happens every year with softball teams from Niamey, Niger.
After carrying out fund raising events, each year the PTA decides how to spend its funds.
In the past, the PTA has financed infrastructure projects like improving the safety of the elementary play ground, teacher generated projects like improving the science lab, and supporting a medical charity field trip for our students.
For this year, we are still in the process of deciding what to support. We are planning a survey to get PTA members input. Funds are usually dispersed in the later end of the school year
