Middle School technology supplies provided by the PA

The School Project for 2018-2021 is “Live together, imagine, create: express yourself.” One of the many components of this project is to help our Middle School students develop their critical thinking and conceptual skills. To that end, new projects have been put in place in which students design and create using a mix of art and technology.

The FASP Parents’ Association has allocated an annual contribution of $8,000 for the purchase of supplies and materials to be used by all grades. For the Middle School, these funds have mainly been used to purchase technology equipment such as a solar tracker and electricity power meters.

Maternelle cooking supplies provided by the PA

The School Project for 2018-2021 is “Live together, imagine, create: express yourself.” One of the many components of this project is to nurture our Maternelle (Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten) students’ exploration of their world. To that end, monthly cooking projects and shared meals have been put in place. Students learn about healthy eating habits and cooking skills by preparing and eating a meal together on a monthly basis.

The FASP Parents’ Association has allocated an annual contribution of $8,000 for the purchase of supplies and materials to be used by all grades. For the maternelle, these funds have mainly been used to purchase tools and utensils for cooking.

2018 FASP Book Fair

A big thank you to everyone who joined us for our 2018 Book Fair! Many families and friends of the school joined us at Barnes and Noble on December 1st for fun activities, holiday shopping, and supporting the school. Every year, purchases made on that day return a percentage back to the school, which we use to buy new books for our school library. Families also have a chance to purchase and donate a book on our library wish list.

Activities run throughout the day for kids and adults to enjoy.

The PA’s first Coffee Break 2018-19

The Parents Association’s first Coffee Break of the year took place on Friday – a great place to meet other parents, to hear more about the PA’s plans for the year, and to have a chance to volunteer. If you’re interested in getting involved this year, click here!

Thursday Workshop supplies provided by the PA

The School Project for 2018-2021 is “Live together, imagine, create: express yourself.” One of the many components of this project is to nurture students’ creativity and develop their skills in problem solving and following a procedure. To that end, the new Thursday Workshops have been put in place for Elementary grades, and other projects have been planned for the Maternelle and Middle School.

The FASP Parents’ Association has allocated an annual contribution of $8,000 for the purchase of supplies and materials to be used in classrooms and during the workshops.

Below you will learn how the funds raised last year have been recently spent to enrich these new projects.

Students learn to follow a procedure, use fine motor skills, and exercise creativity while completing various art projects like basket weaving, sewing, mosaics, and jewelry making.

Learning to navigate encourages critical thinking, develops spatial and mathematics skills, and gets kids outside!

Activities like 3Doodler and Origami Bots combine creativity and technology.

Parents Association Picnic

The entire school community gathered on the front lawn of the school on Friday to celebrate the start of another school year. This picnic is always a great chance to meet fellow parents, get to know the teachers, and enjoy a nice meal together while the kids enjoy time with friends. Thank you to the PA for organizing a wonderful event!

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!
