Parent participation via volunteer commitment plays an essential role at FAIS by 1) modeling responsible, service-oriented behavior to students and 2) involving the entire family in the student’s educational life. In addition, the volunteer system allows FAIS to keep administrative expenses low relative to many other schools.
FAIS requires that every family commit to 20 hours of service each year. If the 20 hours are not met, families will be charged $20 per unfulfilled hour. Remember to log your volunteer hours on Edline. After entering your user name and password, you will find the volunteer log link on the right side of the page.
Current volunteer opportunities are announced in the Lower School and Middle School weekly parent newsletters.
