Parental Involvement

Parents have multiple ways to be involved in the HKIS community 

One of the core values of HKIS is that “together, parents, faculty, staff, and students create the conditions for children’s success and a healthy lifestyle.” HKIS partners with parents in many ways.  Each division holds a Back-to-School Night at the beginning of the year, hosts Parent Coffees throughout the year and has Parent/Teacher Conferences each semester. Communications are sent home regularly through divisional newsletters, classroom or cluster newsletters, emails by faculty and a regularly updated community website.

The Parent Faculty Organization supports the school, fosters partnership between school and home, builds a sense of community, and raises funds for school-related purposes. The PFO is composed of parents, staff and faculty volunteers from all schools within HKIS. In addition to providing 1-1 mentoring for new families, it sponsors major community building and fundraising events including the Pumpkin Festival, Chinese New Year festivities and the World’s Fair. The PFO also organizes book fairs in all four schools, programs for new parents, Back to School Nights and grade level coffee/meetings twice a year. The funds raised by the PFO help support many activities including scholarships and the purchasing of resources for the school specifically requested by faculty, parents and students.
