Words cannot express how truly grateful we are for having so many people join us for our 15th Anniversary Benefit Gala. It was great to see everyone dressed up and celebrating our 15 years of excellence in bilingual education.
Thank you to all our sponsors, class liaisons, volunteers and everyone who played their part in making our Gala not only a great event, but our most successful yet.
We also wanted to give a special thanks to our host and master of ceremonies Laurene Isip Scheire for making sure the night was a success, Jerry Ford for your memorable and moving speech, Cecilia Rouse for your inspirational perspective on bilingual education, Oksana Kessous for the angelic sounds of your harp and flute duet, The Philly Quartet for your incredible performance, and of course Thomas F.

Nurture. Structure. Latitude.
These were simple, yet powerful, parenting principles Robert Evans, a noted clinical psychologist and a child and family therapist for years, shared with parents who attended his talk at the French American School of Princeton on Tuesday, December 8, 2015. Parents, school faculty and board members from FASP, as well as from the Princeton community, gathered to listen to Rob’s realistic and common-sense approach to parenting during these challenging times.
“As the pace of life accelerates and as the future grows less predictable, parents find it more challenging to raise children of character, caring, and competence,” said Corinne Güngör, Head of the French American School of Princeton. “Rob’s practical advice on focusing on our strengths as parents was very well-received by many parents. This is quite timely, as many of us are constantly re-evaluating the parenting strategies we use in this day and age of digital distractions and societal pressures.”
