Thank you for your gratitude and for preparing such a nice feast!

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.

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.
