If you aren’t sure one of these roles would be right for you, don’t let that stop you from joining the PTO. Please complete the 2020 PTO Sign-up Form. This form doesn't obligate you to anything but will add you to our distribution list. The list is used to send information regarding PTO meetings, events and volunteer opportunities.

Next PTO Meeting: Wednesday, October 7

PTO meetings take place every Wednesday starting at 9 a.m. and last approximately half an hour. As much as we would LOVE to be able to meet in person until it is safe to do so, we will meet via Zoom at the link below. We hope you can join us!


The ISD PTO:

1. Serves as a liaison between the parents and the school community.

2. Supports new and returning ISD families

3. Organizes cultural and social events, and

4. Raises funds to support the academic and social needs of the ISD community


Who is the PTO?

The PTO is comprised of parents of students at ISD. ANY parent can join and ALL are encouraged to join meetings and participate in activities and events. We are currently looking for a President and Secretary to round out the board. Alexandra Gifford is currently serving as the Treasurer, and until a president is confirmed, the PTO main point of contact.


When does PTO meet?

The PTO will be meeting weekly on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. To start we will meet via Zoom but will meet in person when we can do so safely in a space that can accommodate all who would like to attend.


What does the PTO do in times of COVID?

This is a great question and something we are actively figuring out. Currently, we are exploring options for guest speakers and community involvement that can be accomplished in a socially distant way. If you would like to be a guest speaker or have any ideas for the PTO we encourage input and ideas from all parents. Please email pto@parent.isd.sn and attend our next Zoom meeting.
