The CIS Parent Teacher Association met last Thursday to wrap up a great first semester of the 2021-2022 school year. They have had a productive start to the year! The PTA organized school volunteers who planned and led special interest classes with our elementary students. They also donated and decorated the school lobby to keep our school festive during the month of December. Finally, they wrapped up 2021 with our first ever movie night!
The primary goal of our PTA committee is to strengthen the partnership between the school and our community. We want to create a village to raise our students in an engaging and challenging environment. The PTA is active in raising funds for school activities. At the movie night, the PTA booths earned nearly 8000 RMB! This money will go back into the school activities to support programming for our students. Finally, the PTA provides an opportunity for parents to get involved at the school. Students whose parents are involved in the school do better academically, so more parent involvement provides this benefit as well.
The CIS Parent Teacher Association does not have a formal leadership structure. Instead, they work as a team to develop and plan initiatives. We will be providing financial reports that will be made available for parents at the end of every school term. We would like to thank all of the parents who have been participating in the PTA this year.
