Teacher Day: Call for Donations
Victor Santos

Please help us celebrate our wonderful EAB teachers on Teacher Day! 

We would like to present each teacher with a small “thank you” gift for all of their hard work and dedication on October 5th.

To support us in hosting this event, we kindly ask that each family donate R$40 reais. We have ordered eco-friendly bamboo coffee mugs with a message of appreciation for our teachers. For your convenience, the donation can be made by scanning either the Pix or Paypal QR codes for a deposit into the PTO’s bank account. For those unable to donate via Pix, cash donations will be accepted and can be collected by your Room Parent/Grade Representatives. 

If you have any questions, email 

Thanks for your support!

Welcome to the PTO
Parent-Teacher Organization

The PTO would like to welcome all families to our 2022-2023 school year. A special and warm welcome to all the new arriving families! We are delighted to have you at EAB and we count on your support to make this a great and memorable year! 

This year we will start with an important change that many of you might have noticed already. We are no longer using the FSP initials (Family School Partnership). From now on, we will use PTO (Parent Teacher Organization). Although we continue to be  a partnership between family and school, we would like to keep a more familiar and standardized name that is also internationally recognized. It will be easier for everyone to understand our role and duty at EAB.

We would also like to invite all of you to visit the PTO table at the Welcome BBQ, this Saturday, August 6th. You will have the opportunity to meet us in person and, for those interested, to volunteer for PTO positions and committees.

We are looking forward to partnering with all of you during the school year to bind and strengthen our community. It will be our pleasure to meet you all!

See you soon!

Thank you parents for your contributions to our Teacher’s & Staff special breakfast and gifts. It was a success, teachers really enjoyed it. 

They were able to spend some time on Wednesday morning enjoying the special breakfast and also all the messages that were written to them by EAB students and families. A tree with hanging notes and messages full of love and acknowledgement decorated this special event prepared to thank and honor our amazing teachers and staff.

FSP would like to thank all the parents that contributed with money donations and  messages, as well as all the volunteers involved to make this nice moment possible. Parents donated R650 which helped pay for the breakfast and gifts.

The Family & School Partnership (FSP) and admissions office welcomed 12 new families to the EAB community on Saturday, April 2, 2022.

FSP President, Xaviera Gutierrez and Noela Xavier, Admissions Director, hosted new families at an informal breakfast at the school. The families came from many different countries, ranging from Brazil to Canada to Sweden to South Korea to the United States. Parents and children were able to chat and get to know each other, eat and play as well as express interest in signing up as volunteers for future FSP activities. 

The Family & School Partnership (FSP) is the parent association at EAB. Our vision is to inspire families to partner in the education of their children and connect EAB families with each other and the school to create a strong community of lifelong learners. We welcome the participation of all parents and guardians, so sign up or email us at to get involved!
