Parents Teachers Association
The Dresden International School has a very active Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Every parent who has a child enrolled at DIS is automatically a member.
Purpose: To involve parents and teachers in promoting the welfare of students, and to actively support and foster the integration of parents, teachers, and students into the DIS community. The DIS PTA is an organization devoted to fostering community spirit and supporting the school in the education of our children through a variety of social, informational and fundraising activities, for example the Spring Festival, the Winter Bazaar, the St. Martin's Day Parade, the Welcome Back BBQ or Cooking Classes.
The PTA supports a variety of activities throughout the school year to promote a sense of community and to raise funds that are used to enrich and improve the lives of our teachers and children at the school.
Get Involved in the DIS Community. Parent volunteers are a very important part of a successful school and volunteers are needed in every capacity, big or small, English or German, both in and out of the classroom. We understand the time challenges that you face and will coordinate the right volunteer opportunities that work for the time that you can offer.
There is one PTA meeting each month. The regular meeting is usually held on the last Thursday of each month in the conference room of Building A at the School Campus at 17:00. All parents and DIS faculty are members of the PTA and are invited to the meetings to discuss issues, share ideas/concerns, and to vote on the allocation of PTA funds and projects to pursue.
If you have something you would like to add to a meeting agenda, please email the PTA at pta[at]dresden-is.de. More information can be found on the PTA's website: www.dresden-pta.de.
