Irvine Chinese School PTO
On behalf of the Irvine Chinese School Parent Teacher Organization, we would like to welcome both new and returning families for the 2017-2018 school year!
Our mission as your PTO Board is to enhance the cultural experience and to build a community for Chinese-learning families from all different backgrounds. In conjunction with ICS events, PTO will provide additional cultural activities to enrich our students’ learning environment. Together with the excellent academic programs by our dedicated teaching staff, these activities can provide a holistic approach to learning not just the Chinese language but its rich and extensive culture.
As our name indicated, parent participation is essential to the success of our PTO. We truly appreciate the talents and enthusiasm from any parent volunteer. We invite you to participate in our activities in any way you are able to help. As the saying goes: It takes a village to raise a child!
As this is an organization made up of parent volunteers to serve the parents and students, our PTO welcomes your opinion. Please feel free to ask any questions and/or contribute your ideas. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, welcome and we look forward to meeting each of you.

PTO’s Events and Activities
This year, we have planned many activities for cultural enrichment in support of the school events. While we’re very excited to get started, we unfortunately will be short for funding due to the cancellation in mandatory student activities fee, $15/student. With this new change, we will need your help in fundraising to make up the shortage in funds.
Ice Cream Social at Year-End Ceremony!
PTO is once again hosting an ice cream social on the last day of school. All students will get a ticket to trade in for any item from the truck. Enjoy a Treat on Us!

My name is Melinda Liu, and I am your current Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) President. After 10 years at Irvine Chinese School (ICS), my 16-year-old son graduated last year. At present, I have two children attending ICS, one in High School 1A and another in Traditional 8A. We started at ICS about 11 years ago when my son enrolled in the first grade traditional program, and I’ve been volunteering since then. My first role as a volunteer at ICS was class treasurer for my son’s first grade class. If my memory serves me right, we were the first class to start the system of “RPL plus Coordinators”. I served in this capacity for three years. After that, I have served many other volunteer functions, including RPL for my all children’s classes. I’ve also assisted in various PTO activities.
I have always been a volunteer mom at all my children’s schools and activities. My experiences include Girl Scout leader, troop treasurer, room mom, team representative, etc. I’ve gained much knowledge and many skills through these demanding volunteer experiences.
Professionally, I am a licensed attorney in the State of California, and a licensed Real Estate Broker in the State of California (01848683). I graduated from University of California, Berkeley, California and Southwestern University School Law, Los Angeles, California.
As a mom with three very active children, I am constantly juggling multiple schedules. I am very excited to serve as the new president for our PTO in the 2017-2018 school year, and I look forward to working with the new board and serving the students and parents of ICS.
Very Truly Yours,
