Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
Welcome to the Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
The TCIS PTA is a voluntary association of parents and faculty who work together to support the educational & co-curricular programs at TCIS. Our goal is to promote community and unity among staff, parents, and students, and to enhance the learning environment through volunteer support.
All TCIS parents, faculty and staff are encouraged to join the PTA.
The PTA organizes service projects & donates funds to improve the school facilities and support student programs. Examples of PTA activities include the following:
- Christmas Bazaar
- International Festival
- Career Day
- Student Co-Curricular Support - Food & Home Stays
- Spirit Store
- Student Art Calendar
- 119 Parent Information Sessions
- Teacher Appreciation Snacks
PTA Officers, Grade Representatives, and Committee Chairs meet monthly to plan for upcoming events and to approve PTA expenditures. Executive Meetings are open to all PTA members.
Grade representatives organize monthly parent meetings by grade to share information from PTA Executive Meetings, and they gather parent questions & feedback.
These are monthly parent information sessions led by TCIS faculty members. The workshops are designed to help parents understand TCIS programs, policies and practices. Topics include communication platforms, academic updates, special assessments, clubs & activities, upcoming community events, and others.
TCIS Parents are active volunteers in many ways within the school:
