Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!
The Canadian International School believes that parents are an important and integral part of a child’s education. At CIS, the parent-staff committee is a volunteer group dedicated to providing opportunities for parents and teachers to work together for the benefit of all CIS students. This committee is known as VIPS (Very Involved Parents and Staff). The VIPS meet regularly to coordinate various special events and exchange ideas throughout the year. Any interested parents are welcome to become a part of the committee. Meetings are held weekly on Sunday mornings in the staff room, and all are welcome!
Listed below are a few of the events that the VIPS plan, organize, and run throughout the year. In addition to these events, the committee also organizes a monthly Pizza Day and various bake sales which help fund our yearly activities.
Fall Festival : At Fall Festival the children dress up in their favorite costumes and enjoy many exciting activities! This is an evening event and provides a great opportunity for the families in our community to meet each other and start establishing those all-important friendships.
International Day : This is a celebration of the diversity of nationalities at our school, including a Parade of Nations, student performances, and food and decorations provided by the parents
Staff Appreciation Lunch : The VIPS organize a buffet style lunch for all the staff of our school to say thank you to them for all their hard work throughout the year.
