ISP Parent Network Meeting this Friday

The ISP Parent Network’s mission is to strengthen, enhance and encourage the educational and community environment at the International School of Portland. It serves to identify and organize volunteer support at ISP. Just as importantly, it aims to strengthen relationships, communication, and collaboration between parents, faculty, and administrators.

Monthly meetings have begun again, and you’re invited! Join us next week to learn more about Parent Network happenings and how to get more involved now or in the future. If you are a current parent at the school, you are already a member of the Parent Network! 🙂

Please Record Volunteer Hours!

We have many parents attending meetings, chaperoning, and helping out in the library and classrooms. Please record your hours so that we know who to thank! Plus, an accurate record of volunteer hours is very important for grant applications and external funding.

Volunteer hours can even be recorded for “educational meetings” like Curriculum Night, Room Parent Orientation, and more!

You can also find the link in MySchool App under the Resources section.

ISP wouldn’t be the great school it is without our volunteers! THANK YOU!
