During the week of January 13th, students at FASP celebrated the traditional “Galette Des Rois” celebration in the cafeteria. FASP’s kings and queens enjoyed a delicious cake during the celebration.
For elementary and middle school students, the cake was graciously paid for by the FASP Parents’ Association, who purchased them from local caterer “Cuisine, by Anne-Renee.” In maternelle, students prepared the cakes in class during a baking activity.
On December 7th, the French American School of Princeton (FASP) Parents’ Association hosted its annual book fair at the Barnes and Noble located in Princeton’s MarketFair Mall.
The book fair brought together the FASP community made up of students, parents and faculty. The day-long event offered a selection of children’s literature, crafts and two special story times read to students. In addition to literature and crafts, the book fair welcomed children’s book illustrators Risa Horiuchi and Mike Moran, as well as author Kelsey Kloss, who specializes in children’s literature.
During the event, Moran led a drawing workshop, which engaged middle-school aged students. Earlier in the day, a special story time gathered the attention of the younger students.
Kloss, author of the book Malty the Blue Tiger, feels honored to have read to the bilingual students of the school.
“We had so much fun reading and signing Malty the Blue Tiger in Princeton,” said Kloss. “It was wonderful to meet all of the fantastic readers and families who joined us!”
Horiuchi, who illustrated Kloss’ book and a number of other children’s books, also read during the story time.
“It was great to see the children’s reactions to Malty the Blue Tiger,” said Horiuchi. “Their reactions really brought the illustrations to life.”
The event, coordinated by the FASP Parents’ Association, is an annual book fair designed to help grow the school’s library through both donated and purchased books.
“All funds raised during the event go toward purchasing additional books for the school library,” said Prisca Tsai, President of the FASP Parents’ Association. “The book fair is one of the biggest events that the association coordinates for the school.”
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!
On October 4th, the FASP Parents’ Association held a general meeting and coffee break in the cafeteria. During the first meeting of the academic year, parents met with one another to discuss the projects, activities and goals set for the remainder of the school year.
The FASP Parents’ Association also gives a special thanks to The Blue Bears Special Meals for providing delicious breakfast pastries!
Our school has an amazing team of teachers and staff who work together to bring a bilingual education to our students. Every year on National Teacher Appreciation Day, the team is treated to a delicious home-cooked meal by our Parents Association and volunteer parents. Thank you for your gratitude and for preparing such a nice feast!
A big MERCI to the Parents Association for the magic show and games enjoyed by our students recently at FASP. Students enjoyed entertainment from I See Magic, games, and music. This is an opportunity for our students to socialize outside of the classroom and make some memories!
