Welcome to the PTA site

Parents (PTA) are the ones who support the JLS!


The Japanese Language School of Greater Boston is a non-profit organization, and is run by a Steering Committee made up of parent volunteers. The main resource for activities at the school is the parents themselves, and the PTA has the responsibility to enrich our children's educational environment.

PTA's duty

    • Understand and participate the PTA activities

    • Attend PTA general meeting

    • Payment of PTA membership fee

    • Participate in the on-duty system

    • Help out school events

What is the on-duty system?

All parents of elementary students and above participate in the on duty system, which means volunteering in one of the following areas: the safety patrol, the coffee/bake sale, and the library; the Kindergarten parents help in classes. Parents take their turn a few times a year per child. The details of the duties are given by members of each committee (or by the teacher, in case of Kindergarten helpers.)
