PTA - Parent Teacher Association
The ICS Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a not-for-profit organization for parents, teachers, students and staff at ICS Addis. The PTA was formed to support and promote a high-quality, well-rounded education by achieving three main goals:
- Create a greater sense of community among and between parents, teachers and the school
- Provide support, information and resources to families, teachers, students and staff
- Encourage and facilitate parent participation
If you would like any more information about the PTA and what we do please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
To support the PTA and other ICS groups and programs, please register with the Parent Community Link HERE.
The Parent Community Link (PCL) will match parents who want to get involved with a variety of opportunities throughout the year. The Parent Community Link will be a great resource for the PTA, Booster Club and other groups in the years to come.
The purpose for the Parent Community Link:
The PCL will centralize all parent collaboration. With the PCL, parents can volunteer their time and talents in a variety of ways without having to make year-long commitments. Parents can be involved in ways and at times that fit their schedules and level of interest. Whether you want to be planning regular events for the parent community or only have time for one hour at a major event on a weekend, the PCL will be your link to the school for volunteering.
The Parent Community Link’s objectives are to:
- Provide opportunities for parent involvement such as with the PTA, Booster Club or informally through parent and community events
- Build relationships with parents and ICS communities
- Promote collaboration, communication and community involvement
- Facilitate and support activities and special events to complement the academic program
How the PCL works
The PCL will be managed by the ICS Communications Office. The PCL will create a database of parents who want to be involved, with parameters outlining the dates, times and areas that each person would like to be involved. There will not be any officer positions or on-going executive roles in the PCL.
When an event needs extra support, the PCL will match parents with an event or project based on the interest that parents describe in the database. For larger events that need planning and execution, the PLC will go to the database and find parents that have indicated they would be interested in this level of commitment.
Take the Parent Interest Survey
We are very excited about the PCL. We encourage all parents to take the survey and provide the parameters that fit your specific interests, needs and schedule. The survey should take only five minutes to complete. Then, when an opportunity comes up, we will contact you to see if you can be involved.
