The PTA is a nonprofit parent teacher organization made up of parents, legal guardians, and staff at the Copenhagen International School (CIS). The role of PTA is to encourage a closer connection between home and school, provide opportunities for parents to get involved, staff and students to socialize, and to raise funds for the betterment of the school. At CIS, all parents and staff are automatic members of the PTA.
Volunteer opportunities: Come get involved and meet others in our CIS community! We welcome you to complete the "PTA Volunteering Event" section of the Activity Sign-up form. Thank you for your interest.
How is Money Raised?
Money is raised throughout the year to help facilitate projects which enhance student experience. Our main fundraisers are the Halloween Fest, Holiday Fair, and the Spring Fair. These events are organized by parent volunteers and students for the whole school community to enjoy. Each event is budgeted to generate a surplus over the cost of the event.
How is Money Spent?
PTA's primary financial goal is to generate sufficient funds to cover PTA expenses.
Funds are intended to provide ‘extras’ not already provided by the school's main income – often 'fun things' which enhance and supplement the learning experience of the students and staff.Any cumulative surplus, after expenses, available at the end of the school year is allocated to school needs and projects based on requests from students, parents or the school administration. These expenditures are voted on by PTA members at the general PTA meeting held annually in May. PTA leadership can only spend money that has been voted on in the budget.
If you have recently helped out at a PTA event and require reimbursement for any expenditures you have incurred then use the online expense reimbursement form to submit your expenses. Reimbursement requests should be submitted within 30 days after the occurrence of an event.
