The first PTA meeting of 2021 was held online on Wednesday with new leadership in place. D. Nishikawara became president, while J. Kwon stepped up to be vice-president. M. Chikazoe is the new secretary, and there are also continuing and new members heading up event coordination: L. Brasher, M. Humphris, and J. Lee. Y. Nepali and M. Iwaizumi remain as co-treasurers, while K. Kinoshita continues as a liaison to the Board.
There were many topics discussed, such as fun online events for all parents to participate in now that it is difficult to meet face to face. In addition, there was also talk about establishing a system to ensure support is given to new families when they arrive. And look out for new opportunities to order spirit wear - maybe even NIS branded masks! And the group also talked about the lack of entries so far for the NIS PTA Cookbook! Look for more information on that soon. The project's success depends on all of us, so the PTA could use your help!
Remember that all parents are welcome to these monthly meetings! Future meetings are scheduled for 10 am on Feb. 3, Mar. 3, Apr. 7, and May 19 (AGM), and the PTA leadership hopes to see more parents join!
But for now, we ask you to stay tuned for further info on the PTA cookbook and announcements about future PTA online events to enrich your stay-at-home life!
