Donors to the Special Appeal at this year's Gala raised almost $76,000 towards the renovation of our 18-year-old playground, providing the funds to replace the existing turf field and make hardscaping updates. Now families may purchase pavers, with their student's name, the name of a teacher, or other commemorative inscription, the proceeds of which will be used to purchase new and replacement playground equipment. Only 200 pavers will be sold, and will create a community plaza adjacent to the playground.
The admissions season has officially passed, but FAIS still has space available in some of our preschool-kindergarten classes. Our Lower School accepts students from age 2-1/2 up to age 6, which is the optimal time to begin learning a second language. Contact the Office of Admissions to learn more today!
