Projects Funded by Parents’ Association


The French American School of Princeton (FASP) would like to thank the Parents’ Association, volunteers, donors and the FASP community for contributing $8000, benefiting student projects and activities.

We thank all who made this possible. With your contributions and continued support, we were able to purchase new items for maternelle, elementary and middle school student projects and activities.

Take a look below and see our new items and projects! For the 2019-20 school year, we’ve created skeletons using plastic string and construction paper, and we also used a leaf press to preserve our findings from nature found on our campus!

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.
