Parent support group (PSG)

CAISL has traditionally had a Parent-Teacher Organization. However, the last mandate finished without volunteers to take over the Board Member positions.

Instead, a group of parents has been meeting to make sure CAISL is supported by parent volunteers and key events can continue to happen. These parents welcome any participation from any other willing parents. 

Parent Support Group Activity

All parents were invited for a meeting in January to rethink the role and functions of the PTO. The ‘Parent Support Group’ emerged from that and the following meetings. This group, with no formal structure, created a community survey to understand what events were considered important and, with those results in hand, decided to organize the following events until the end of this school year:

Bake sale in support of the Fine Arts Festival – May 27th.

(the sub-committee to organize this event will be meeting on May 16th, at 8:30, in the Snack-Bar)

 

A decision has also been made to organize the Welcome Back Picnic in September, as well as an International Fair in the beginning of next school year. The sub-committee(s) to organize these events will be meeting also on May 16th, at 8:30, in the Snack-Bar.

Please join in!

Next Meetings

The next scheduled meeting is on Tuesday, June 6th, at 8:30, in the Snack-Bar.

PTO PURPOSE

The purpose of the CAISL PTO is to promote a sense of belonging and positive mutual support among all members of the school community--parents, staff, and students. The PTO provides a means by which members contribute to the school with their ideas, time, energy, and expertise.

This purpose will be achieved by

  • Organizing and Implementing all-school social events to promote community spirit.
  • Providing support for programs and events organized and implemented by CAISL staff.
