KIS Community

Kozak Connect: Stay Engaged. Be Informed.

Kozak Connect is how our campus community stays engaged and informed with the latest news and events happening at Kyiv International School.  

The Kozak Connect platform includes the school’s Event Calendar; the Kozak Korner newsletter; KIS Informer emails; and our social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.


The mission of the Parent Teacher Organization is to:

  • Help families adjust to life in Kyiv by providing information about the school and living in the city.
  • Organize events throughout the year to build a stronger sense of community.
  • Provide a communication link between parents, teachers and staff.
