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.
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!
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!
Come out and support FASP on Saturday, December 2nd between 10AM and 5PM!
The book fair is a fun, family event sponsored by the Parents’ Association. 20% of sales made using the book fair ID 12022017 goes towards our school. Plus, families have a chance to donate books for our school libraries too.
What can I buy at the Barnes & Noble FASP Book Fair?
Anything you’d expect to see at a book store: books, CDs, DVDs, etc. Consider purchasing a book from the school’s wish list to be donated to the school library for all students to use. Toys and games: B&N has a wide variety of toys and educational games for kids through age 12, including a good selection of Lego sets. Coffee, tea, snacks and lunch: The café at the book store offers a full café menu. The school will earn the rewards from food purchases at the café, too. B&N gift cards are also available.

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.
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:
