1 Parents - Teachers Association of International School of Krakow ANNUAL REPORT 2012/2013 1

2 Dear members of ISK community - With the school year almost over, it is a time to present the annual report of PTA activities. This past year has been very busy for the PTA Steering Committee and the parents who helped us. It was also a year full of various and exciting activities involving many members of our community. I would like to convey special thanks to my extraordinary friends and members of PTA Steering Committee: Heidi Difazzio, Vickie Etoga, BJ Kent and Joanna Jakimowicz. The commitment and positive energy radiated daily by these wonderful ladies gave us the power to act throughout the long winter and gloomy spring. Many thanks to all volunteers and families who helped - please read those short summary to see how extraordinary work was done! I wish all the members of the ISK community a wonderful summer! With best regards -- Magda Figas-Brzeska, PTA president Director s Message: The second Annual General PTA Report provides a healthy glimpse of the on-going work of the Steering Committee, a group of wonderfully talented and supportive parents. Throughout , these volunteers have remained dedicated and committed to improving our school. From the Welcome Picnic in September to the Spring Jamboree in June and the many events in between, this group of energetic parents, have been with us every step of the way. They have provided many opportunities and activities to enrich the lives of our children, support our faculty, and welcome all new families to ISK and continue to connect with them throughout the year. These individuals have truly touched our lives and made ISK a better place for all. Please take a few minutes to read through the Annual Report for the PTA prepared by PTA President Magda Figas-Brzeski. I would like to personally thank Magda and members of the PTA Steering Committee for their support this year. I look forward with even great excitement to our future accomplishments in the years to come. Regards, Mamie Heard, Director 2
