Happy First Birthday PTA IES Kista!!!

Happy First Birthday PTA IES Kista!

On 28th of November PTA IES Kista celebrated it’s first year as an official organization and the board members celebrated by selling fika at the Information Night for prospective Year 4 parents and future IES Kista students.

The PTA has invested in blue aprons with our PTA IES Kista logo, the outline of Kista, so at the guests who stopped by our table full of baked goods, such as cinnamon rolls, chocolate cake, soft gingerbread cake and apple muffins and much more, got a glimpse of our blue aprons which will come in handy for all future PTA events.

There have been many activities during our first year, such as handing out the Nobel Peace Prize to a deserving student, assisting with discos, LAN party and our main fundraising event – Kistaloppet and the International Food Court.

In December, the PTA is looking forward to many activities such as the school’s own Nobel Prize festivities, Lucia and Open Mic, a Winter Disco – keep a look out on SchoolSoft, on our website and in our Facebook group.

We always need for more parent members who can support the IES Kista students thru their involvement, please contact us at and spread the word to any other parents you know.
