The PGA has started planning the 2018 ISA Christmas Bazaar. And…
We need your help.
The Christmas Bazaar will take place Sunday, December 2. We want to make this a great event for our students and ISA families. As you can imagine, there is a lot of work that goes into the planning and execution of these big events. And, we cannot do it without volunteers.
Please, take a moment and look over the numerous ways you could help:
Christmas Decorations at the school (19 – 21 Nov., choose from any of these days)
Lottery Basket Making (29 Nov)
Setup (1. Dec after 15:30)
Shift workers for the Bazaar (2 Dec, 11:00-17:00, various spots and times)
Cooking/Baking items for the Bazaar (Will be contacted by the PGA)
Gift Donations for the Lottery (Will be contacted by the PGA to confirm)
As you can see there are numerous roles we need to fill. Pick one, or several. Any help is greatly valued and appreciated. Many of these volunteer positions will not require attending any PGA meetings.

3rd Family Bonding trip Archaeological Museum of Thebes
After the two successful Family Bonding trips that took place last year, the ISA’s PGA (Parents Group Association) is organizing a tour and is inviting you to join the 3rd “Family Bonding trip” in the Archaeological Museum of Thebes on Sunday, March 11th 2018 (11:30 am).
The new Archaeological Museum of Thebes occupies an exhibition area of 1.000 m2 and houses a multitude of artefacts, representing millennia of continuous human activity in Boeotia. The exhibition halls spread over two different levels, a choice dictated by the necessity to maintain the natural formation on the western slopes of the Kadmeia hill.
The exhibition is arranged in a total of eighteen sections, eleven of which follow a basic chronological order from the Paleolithic period down to the end of the Ottoman rule (nrs. 3 -14 ); in this way, they illustrate over time culture, everyday life, political and social evolution in Boeotia.

Furthermore, the PGA supported our school by buying eight cordless microphones for Mr. Burk’s Drama Class Shows and a new fridge for the Primary School. Additionally a donation of 300 euros was offered to the Social Services of the Municipality of Kifissia.
The participation of the parents in the PGA is extremely important. Through your help and support we can improve our services and reinforce the bonding among all members of the school. We invite you to become members by filling in the form that will be available to all parents during the orientation days. The membership fee is 10 euros per guardian.
