ISPTSA General Membership Meeting
Tuesday, October 3rd
6:00 to 8:30PM

Join Today, Our Goal is 100% ISPTSA Membership

Our goal this year is 100% Membership in International School PTSA. That means we need 580 PTSA members.

How does it work?  Simple, we need one member for every student.  

Dual membership of $35 supports two students. Single membership supports one student. We usually have 350 members but that is in the past. New year, new ideas, new goal.

We have kicked off our new year with some really supportive parents and guardians becoming or renewing their membership with ISPTSA. THANK YOU! Each week we will highlight our new members as we stretch to reach our goal. Please remember to get your PTSA membership.  

With 3 easy steps, you can update your information, join the PTSA, and make sure you are signed up to receive the latest information throughout the school year!

1.  Join ISPTSA, click here.  You will have the option to:

  • Purchase a PTSA membership for the new school year and make a back to school donation!
