The International School of Florence Parent Association supports the educational goals and strategic vision of the school by partnering with faculty, students and others in the community to plan events, to facilitate communication, and to provide a welcoming social environment for all members of the community.
We are a group of enthusiastic parents from different nationalities, crossing over many language barriers, with many skills and talents, who plan and assist with events that include our annual field day, career forum, autumn bazaar, new family welcome breakfast, fundraising gala, and the festival of song.
Everyone is welcome! The ISF PA requires no initiation – being a parent automatically qualifies you as a member. We anticipate helping one another to discover this beautiful city we all share through the ties of our children. We all volunteer our time when possible, for the same vested interest. Being connected to the school through the PA offers children and fellow parents the unique opportunity to grow within their own community.
All parents and/or guardians of students enrolled at ISF are invited to participate in the PA, within four key areas of volunteerism:
|PA LEADERSHIP TEAM||
The leadership team consists of 6 - 8 members that together are responsible for the following:
Members are elected by PA attendees at the final meeting in June for the next upcoming school year. Any parent is eligible and there is a term limit of 4 consecutive years in the same role.
|GRADE COORDINATOR (US) / CLASS COORDINATOR (JS)||
There is opportunity for 2 - 3 parents per grade to act as parent representatives for their children's grades.
For each PA community event and Student Council supporting events, 2 parent volunteers are needed to lead the planning and execution of the event.
|GENERAL SUPPORT||Parents who would like to volunteer their time/skills or donate items for a specific event/initiative are also encouraged to sign up and participate.|
