YK Pao School believes in the importance of parent engagement as a crucial part of the education process. All Pao School parents, educators, and staff are general members of the PTA.
The Pao School PTA is a welcoming and inclusive organization whose goal is to enhance the spirit, cooperation, and involvement of parents with the administration, office staff, and the educators.
All members are welcome to join any of the PTA’s various committees. Committees are headed by a volunteer chairperson. Communication regarding a committee’s efforts should flow through its chairperson and not through the administration or educators.
General PTA Meetings are open to all parents and educators and are held regularly, generally on the second Monday of each month. Every effort is made to hold the meeting at a time that is convenient for the most number of attendees. The first general meeting of the year is a special meeting at which PTA Officers are ratified.
Executive Committee Meetings
The Executive Committee consists of the PTA’s four officers, the school’s two principals, and one Grade Year Representative from each year level, and the committee chairperson. The Executive Committee meets are held once a month. If there is an issue you would like to discuss at one of these meetings, please notify the secretary who will arrange to have the item put on the agenda in advance.
Committee Meetings and Grade Year Meetings
Meetings of PTA Committees should be organized by the committee’s chairperson. Grade Year meetings are organized by the Grade Year leaders and should occur at least once per semester.
