SSIMS PTA 2020-2021

About the PTSA

The PTSA is an important and energetic part of the SSIMS community. We're committed to supporting every student, teacher, and staff member at our school. We want every student to have all they need to thrive and succeed. Our school of approximately 1150 students is truly international: we have students from over 40 countries that attend SSIMS, and our International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program means that students learn about the world while developing critical thinking skills.

About 45% of the students at SSIMS are from low-income families, and our school has been working very hard to close our achievement gap. The SSIMS PTSA is committed to helping all SSIMS students succeed by bringing resources and programming to enhance the regular curriculum and by supporting teachers as they bring creativity and innovation to their classrooms. SSIMS has a tremendous leadership team, great staff, and amazing students and families. We hope that you will embrace this wonderful community and that you will share your time and talents with our students, teachers, and staff. We guarantee you that your assistance will have huge rewards for the students and that you will find tremendous satisfaction in helping at SSIMS.

Please reach out to our PTSA officers if you have any questions or need any information please send an email to ssimspresidents@gmail.com.

Stay Connected 

Join the Listserv today so that we may share information, get immediate feedback, and stay in touch on important issues. You can sign up by sending an email to SSIMSptsa+susbscribe@groups.io and include your affiliation with the school in the body of the email (for example, "I'm a guardian of a SSIMS 6th-grade student.").

PTSA meetings are often held in the evenings on the second Tuesday of the month. This year we have gone virtual. Meeting details are circulated using the Listserv and through school emails. We hope to “see” you there.
