Parent Teacher Organisation (PTO)
Families Learning & Growing Together
The Dalat PTO warmly welcomes all families to learn and grow together in the Dalat community. We are very blessed to be in a school that wholeheartedly encourages and supports the active participation of parents through the many avenues offered by the school and the PTO.
Parents can get involved through volunteer work, community service, and by offering their assistance and expertise in any area of learning or development towards the betterment of the school and benefit of its students’ learning.
The PTO sincerely hopes we can give a good platform to parents to get to know each other, meet with teachers and staff on a regular basis and offer opportunity for you to serve and partner with the school.
Over the years, PTO has grown from a few faithful to a sizable number, mainly providing ways for parents to get involved in school. Events and activities are sponsored by our generous PTO community and all proceeds generated go towards the PTO fund, which in turn goes back to benefit the school, students, staff and Dalat families.
Some of the major events of the PTO are Family Fun Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, Garage Sale and International Food Fair. Popcorn Mondays are a weekly labor of love while the Valentine’s Day fundraiser is also a big part of the Dalat PTO tradition. Last year, PTO introduced a new Christmas Mingle Jingle event for parents which was enjoyed by many!
The PTO fund recently gave a donation towards the Drama department, helped purchase music stands for the Music department & helped out with some much needed furniture for the new Staff Room. In addition to the annual gift of vouchers to all Dalat staff during Appreciation Week and supporting one of our favorite Dalat traditions, Battle of the Books (held virtually due to quarantine), funds were allocated to support the Junior Class & a donation was given to Care & Share. In years past we’ve had the privilege to bless the PE department, Fine Arts department, the ES Library, Annual Fund, Student Center, Staff Lounge and Scouts.
We are growing strong. But don’t take our word for it. Come and be part of the action.
