Ice Cream Truck

To celebrate the last day of school, the Parents Association organized an ice cream truck to visit the school. Students all enjoyed a delicious afternoon treat.

Dance Party & Movie Night

Elementary students had fun with friends after school hours at the Dance Party (Grades 3-5) and Movie Night (Grades 1 & 2)!

PA Coffee Break & Meeting

Our Parents Association had their last Coffee Break and general meeting of the school year. They reviewed the events and fundraising that have taken place this year, and they are looking ahead to next year. Thanks to the funds raised during this year’s events like the Book Fair and Book Sale, the PA will be making some purchases for the school to use next year. They are also looking for new volunteers to be a part of the board – let us know if you’re interested in getting further involved!

Lots of new books on our school library shelves!

Fundraising events and activities help us keep our shelves full of new books. Over the summer, we were able to add more than 250 new books to our library shelves! These new books allow our students access to the latest titles and the most up-to-date information on many topics. We are extremely grateful to the FASP Parents’ Association for their generous contribution to our libraries.

New musical instruments to support Music Curriculum

Music is a key component of every culture and serves as a way for people to connect with each other. Over the summer, we expanded our music program by acquiring new musical instruments for all our students in Maternelle, Elementary and Middle Schools.

With the generous support of the FASP-Parents’ Association, we purchased percussion sets, djembes, xylophones, keyboards and harps to develop and enhance the musical experience of all our students:
