A MESSAGE FROM THE PCA PRESIDENT

Welcome back to all our ISM Bearcats, old and new! I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing summer, recharged their batteries, and came back ready for another exciting school year.

ISM's Parent Community Association (PCA) is here to support the parents/legal guardians of our students, and also the school, in achieving its Mission and School Wide Student Goals. The PCA also provides the ISM community with a variety of fun, family friendly activities and social events throughout the year, while also helping to support new families as they transition into our community. We have an open door policy and always welcome parents to share ideas, suggestions, or simply come for a chat.

Our EXCOM meets once a month to transact necessary business , and the Parent Representative Group (PRG) meets every second Tuesday of the month. We welcome parents at these meetings and also to volunteer to help at our events. Please email pca@ismanila.org for more information. Mark your calendars now for our first event, the Bearcat Welcome, which will be held on August 18, 2016 at 7:30 a.m. at the Lofthouse. More information about the PCA can be found on the ISM website, on our Facebook page ISM PCA, the PCA bulletin board, the school calendar or feel free to visit us in the PCA office anytime!

We look forward to a fantastic, fun filled SY 2016-2017!

Warm regards,

Simran Uttamchandani
PCA President 2016-2017
