Houston’s Premier PK3 – 12th Grade International Day School

Alumni Parents

Dear Awty Alumni Parents,

Welcome to your association! The Awty Alumni Parents Association (AAPA) was created in 2008 by a group of Awty alumni parents with the help and support of the Office of Advancement. The goal of the AAPA is to keep all Awty parents connected after their children graduate from the school and start their wonderful adventures in higher education and beyond.

We have all made priceless friendships during the time that our children had their amazing Awty experience. Now that they have left Awty, we would like to stay in touch with each other in order to continue the great journey that we have been a part of.

We are parents from all corners of the planet, with one common denominator: The Awty International School. We get together to continue our support of Awty, reconnect, make new friends, and stay in touch. It’s just wonderful to have fabulous friends from all over the world with whom you can reminisce about good old days and get excited over new life stories.

We have many events during the year which you are invited to participate in for free, such as: Cocktails and Care Packages, the Homecoming Wine and Cheese Reception, and the Senior Parent Toast, where we welcome our newest members of the AAPA. In addition to these events, we have social dining experiences throughout the year and our spring wine tasting event. All of these are wonderful opportunities to engage with one another and the AAPA.

The AAPA promises you continued friendship and camaraderie while supporting your favorite school, The Awty International School!

Looking forward to a wonderful year,

Jenny Midyat
President, Awty Alumni Parents Association
