Parental Involvement

Family/School Partnership

The American School of Kinshasa is firmly grounded on the principle that a productive partnership between families and the school is an essential ingredient in student success at all levels. TASOK parents are always welcome on the campus. Parent volunteers help out in elementary classrooms and support numerous school events in all divisions. Faculty are available to talk with parents by request at all times, and parent conferences are scheduled twice each year for all grade levels.
The TASOK Parent/Teacher Committee (PTC) is an active and much appreciated part of our community. The PTC is a significant fund raiser for our students. The PTC parents are integral to the TASOK spirit and are one of the most important partnerships in our school. Two of the PTC’s major events are the International Lunch each November, a sit-down family meal for 400 featuring dishes from around the world prepared by TASOK parents and the annual TASOK Gala, an elegant evening of fine dining and world class entertainment that is TASOK’s biggest fundraiser. The PTC Welcome Picnic every September is the first community event for our new families.
