    Upcoming Fifth Grade Exhibition Highlights Serious Issues

    Students in our PYP programs have been exploring real-life issues and problems of interest to them, and their research will culminate in the first Fifth Grade Exhibition, on April 17. It is a student-led, collaborative inquiry, and an opportunity to show how to take action as a result of their learning, while also apply their knowledge, skills, attitude, and the PYP Learner Profile attributes. Among the topics the students chose to cover were wars/ refugees, endangered animals, gun control, women’s rights, and poverty in the U.S.

  • Renowned Photographer to Visit FAIS

    Pierre de Vallombreuse, a French photographer who documents native populations, will visit the FAIS campus during the week of April 14-18. During his visit, he will talk to students about his profession and how he chose this lifestyle, as well as the present situation of indigenous peoples in the world. He will be a wonderful resource for students currently studying human migration, habitats, and transportation. In conjunction with his visit, FAIS will set up a photo gallery with a collection of his work. Pierre's book "Hommes racines," is currently available from the FAIS Library. Learn more about Pierre and see examples of his work on his website.
