Volunteer - PTA Council Reps
Represent ISD at the district level
The Greenwich PTA Council committees meet to discuss the latest news and issues in different aspects of school life and work with district administrators to educate parents, advocate for change and help implement new initiatives.
The ISD PTA is comprised of dedicated parents, teachers and staff who volunteer their time and give generous donations to provide practical support for our school. That practical support comes in many shapes and sizes and requires a lot of volunteers. These volunteers all work in concert to further the mission of the ISD PTA.
The Mission of the PTA:
To enrich and augment the GPS and ISD IB Primary Years Curriculum. Curriculum Enrichment is a cornerstone of our mission and provides staff and children the opportunity touch, see, feel and experiment in and out of the classroom while providing a spectrum of fun, educational and exciting experiences.
To enhance the school through beautification, staff support, technology, teaching tools and capital improvements.
To encourage a sense of community and belonging. ISD is much like big extended family and that is in large part due to our many outreach programs, family events and activities. We are not your average neighborhood school; roughly 45% of our students are admitted via lottery and the other 55% are from the ISD district, so we strive to reach out to all of our families and create a sense of unity and belonging.
To provide a voice for our community and children to advocate for a higher level of engagement and communication within our school and district.
Our PTA Committees fall under our various VP roles.
