Parents are an integral part of the success of The Awty International School. Parental involvement in student activities, sporting events, and school functions is the best way to experience the richness of the Awty community and to actively participate in the educational support of your student.
In a typical year, we encourage parents to complete the Abuse Prevention training and participate in the Awty community: accompany your child on a field trip, help plan an event, attend a jazz concert, chair a booth at the International Festival, cheer at a soccer game, join the APPA, play Saturday morning tennis, or experience Houston with Awty Cultural Connections.
This year, the environment is very different and we will not be able to gather in our usual formats. Our volunteer groups remain active, and you are encouraged to participate where it makes sense for you; most parent involvement will be virtual, not on campus. We will be strictly limiting visitors (including parents) on campus in an effort to protect the health and well-being of our students and staff. Completing the volunteer training in the fall will have you ready to join onsite opportunities as soon as the school is able to welcome visitors to campus.
If you wish to be part of the Awty community of volunteers, but are not sure where you fit, we can help! Regardless of your time commitment or availability, we have a place for anyone who wants to volunteer.
