THE PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION OF THE AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF DHAKA (AISD)
If you are reading this, chances are you an AISD parent or teacher. CONGRATULATIONS! Welcome to the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Please click here to download a copy of the most recent PTA Handbook.
PTA is a body that comprises all parents and teachers of AISD and exists to provide a closer link between home and school. It is an excellent way for parents and staff to work together for the benefit of students and the school.
What does the PTA do? We raise funds to provide a more fulfilling and enriching environment for our children. Each year we hold three really exciting fundraisers that bring the school and families together: the Halloween Carnival, a Book Fair and an International Fair.
Additionally, funds are raised through the PTA Store that’s run completely by parents with inputs from teachers.
Money earned last year helped send a few of our brilliant young minds to Beijing for the Mathlete and for practical purchases such as a scoreboard for the gym or a Waterboy for our athletes.
Apart from fund raising, the PTA helps keep communication channels open between parents and the school. The ES, MS and HS Representatives along with Class Representatives from each grade provide parents a forum to share their thoughts and ideas, as well as any concerns they may have, with the school authorities.
The PTA members also help the school during big events (Sports days, theater & musical shows) often by volunteering on the day of the event.
How you can get involved? There are several opportunities for you to help and to volunteer through out the year.
- The Chairs of each of the large fundraisers will send out emails asking for volunteers to help plan and execute events. These events require creative and administrative inputs. They also require parents to help with ticket sales and manning stalls during the event.
- The PTA store requires parent-volunteers to man the store during the week.
- You could volunteer to become a class representative
- Volunteer during school events. The PTA committee will share these opportunities with you closer to the dates.
Friendship goes a long way!
