Given the large number of community events at QISS each year, QISS PTA participation is crucial and event committee volunteers are regularly needed. We encourage all parents to get involved in one way or another. There are many volunteer opportunities requiring a range of time commitments.

If you need assistance or have questions or suggestions, you are welcome to contact me or any member of the PTA Executive Board at any time. We are all part of the same QISS family!
