Parent Teachers' Association
Welcome to the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) Limited at the American International School.
The AIS-PTA is a formal channel of communication between families and the school. All parents of children joining AIS become members of the association; we warmly welcome you and hope you will find participating a worthwhile experience for yourself and your children!
PTA has given me a way to be involved and play a pivotal role in helping me feel a deeper connection to AIS. I've had the opportunities to meet other parents and meet wonderful friends. A deeply enriching experience, I would recommend it to any parent looking to make a difference. ~ Bona Yoo, Vice President
PTA has offered me a better understanding of AIS through working with principals, teachers and parents. I'm always delighted to meet with students from Grade 1 to 12 at our bake sales. I'm also grateful for the friendship shown to me by so many parents over the last four years. ~ Lydia Tam, Vice President
Members of the PTA executive committee comprise of parent and teacher representatives elected at our annual general meeting held in May each year. A few examples of events we have organized in the past include welcome back luncheons, fundraising bake sales, teacher appreciation receptions, and - one of the biggest calendar events of the school year - the AIS-PTA Winter Fair. Money raised from PTA events are given to the school to fund important additions to the school experience, including the new school website, refurbishing the school stage, setting up an e-Library, purchasing outdoor educational equipment, resurfacing one of our basketball courts, and providing outdoor play equipment for the children in our Early Childhood program. All efforts of the PTA aim towards the support, enhancement, and enrichment of the learning experience of all students.
I have learned so much through organizing meetings, workshops, events and trips! Most of all, I have met many wonderful parents with whom, I have become close friends. I hope more parents can join us so we can build a even stronger community for the future of our children! ~ Jenny Chan, Vice President
Being part of the PTA has been such a rewarding experience for me; working as a team to make AIS a strong community, meeting so many parents, and building friendships to last a lifetime. ~ Elizabeth Johnston, Treasurer
