Hi! My name is Nariman Al Sawi and it is indeed great to be part of a rich community, but it is even greater to be an active participant in making a difference in a community. As the President of the Parent Teacher Student Association, I welcome new parents and students to AISJ and share with them the beauty of a fresh start full of enthusiasm and energy. I also extend my warm greetings to our returning students and wish everybody a joyful year full of successes and accomplishments.
As a parent, I seize the opportunity to invite parents teachers and students to join PTSA and enjoy a rich experience of teamwork and success. Doing so gives a wonderful opportunity to all to take positive part in purposeful activities that create bonds within our school. At the same time this gives a chance to enrich our kids' learning environment. So don't hesitate to join PTSA now!
Always thinking about good causes that make our school a happy place for everybody, PTSA works voluntarily to achieve sound goals, such as bringing parents, teachers and students together. Another example is supporting and/or sponsoring functions and activities that directly benefit our kids, like athletic, social and cultural activities.
Finally, it is relevant to describe a one-year-long experience as the PTSA President during 2015-2016. It has been a wonderful journey with many fantastic achievements. It is just amazing how AISJ provides all parents, teachers and students chances to take active roles in their community. Indeed it is but the unique way AISJ builds an inspiring and supportive atmosphere which all take ownership of!
