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 email@example.com to get involved!
FSP Valentines Fundraiser came to a close Monday the 14th when parent volunteers spread the love with candy and flowers!
We must say it was a success, with a few hiccups along the way, kids and administrators alike enjoyed some loving notes from students, peers, parents, and coworkers! We received a great turnout from the table sales, and our room parents did a fantastic job pulling classrooms together to get grams for all! Billy the Bull was our greatest hit and sold out within the first two days!!
Thank you so much to all those who volunteered and worked tirelessly to make it a special event for all of EAB!
First off, a big thanks to all of you who supported and helped the FSP last semester. We are planning some fun events for this new semester, so stay tuned!
Right now, we desperately need some help filling the following positions on our parent board:
FSP Secretary and three committed volunteers for our Parent Ambassador Group.
- FSP Secretary: The Secretary’s requirements are very manageable! As Secretary, one would help schedule the monthly board meetings, take meeting minutes, check the FSP email frequently, and help organize FSP events. Most of our board members work full time, so we meet via Zoom, and during the lunch hour. Expect to commit about 2 to 5 hours per week to this role.
- Parent Ambassador Group: For this group, we need at least three dedicated volunteers to pair new incoming families with EAB volunteer “Buddy Families”. The PAG is an organization under the FSP whose mission is to help new families feel welcome, to connect them with other EAB families, and to help them get to know and understand the school and life in Brasilia. It would be wonderful to have this group up and running by the Fall of 2022.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate in any of the above roles. Thank you!
