The JSIS PTSA’s mission is to support the staff and families of the school community to ensure the success of JSIS’s vision.

Description:
John Stanford International School (JSIS) PTSA supports the global purposes of the WSPTA: To work for the health, welfare, safety, education, care, and protection of children in the home, school, community, and place of worship.

JSIS PTSA serves the JSIS school community.

We strive to create a culturally diverse community of life-long learners who demonstrate advanced skills in communication, international language and technology.

History:

  1. We raise funds to support the school. In the past, PTSA funds have contributed to the Playground Renovation Project, provided scholarships for families in need, helped teachers buy classroom supplies, and purchased new books for the library and a new vacuum for the janitor. These are but a few of the many ways the PTSA supports the school financially.

  2. We organize activities and events to build our community. From “first day doughnuts” to the end-of-the-year ice cream social, we find ways to bring us together as a cohesive community of parents, kids, teachers, staff and administrators.

  3. We ensure that communication lines are open. The PTSA tries to keep parents abreast of the news from the school, from the district, and from the community. We run the JSIS website, publish a monthly newsletter, and organize four annual PTSA general meetings to keep parents in the loop about school and education related issues.
