Looking for High School Penpals -> Practice your French while they practice their English.
Monday, January 25, 2016
Emma, 15 and Corentin, 14 both live in France. They both would love to converse and exchange in English and French with American penpals also in High School. Here is a super short introduction: Emma: "I'm Emma. I practice dance, I like reading (mostly sci-fi), watching mangas, listening to pop rock music. I'm a 15 year-old sophomore and I would like to know an American girl with whom I could talk to, share life moments and so on." Corentin: "I am Corentin. I like video games quite a bit and play online with friends. I also like creating videos. I play soccer and basket-ball, not in a club but for fun." The two would be open to welcoming a penpal at their home in the North of France and would like to explore the idea of staying with their penpal in Oregon. If you are interested in learning more about Emma and Corentin and exchanging with them, please contact Laurence Le Mercier llemercier@faispdx.org , 1st grade teacher at FAIS.

Statement from Head of School Pam Dreisin
Friday, November 13, 2015
The FAIS community was shocked and saddened to learn about the unfolding tragedy in Paris. Many members of our French and international community have friends and family in Paris, and similar to the Charlie Hebdo attack last January, their immediate concern is about the safety of their loved ones. The impact of such senseless attacks on their homeland is immense, especially when they are so far away.

Pathfinder for Research on Water
Friday, November 06, 2015
The 4th graders are doing research for their unit on water this month. The central idea is: the availability of water has an impact on humans / La disponibilité de l'eau a un impact sur les humains. In order to support this research we can use a path-finder or guide, to get a bird's-eye view of resources available for that age group in French and in English online (including in the School databases) and in print. For login from home, IDs and passwords are available to FAIS students in "Research Tools" in FAIS Google sites.

Fifth Grade Exchange Welcomes Paris Students
Friday, October 16, 2015
For the eighth year, students from L'Ecole des Francs-Bourgeois in Paris joined our school and our families' homes this month, a perfect complement to our students' immersion experience. FAIS students and 32 French students worked side-by-side in the classroom, sharing poetry during a PYP unit, creating clay masks on campus and then doing a workshop on masks at the Portland Art Museum, and studying Oregon's geography, culture, and "personality." They also enjoyed many excursions together, including a visit to Multnomah Falls and Fort Vancouver, and a field trip to the Evergreen Space Museum. Cédric Strapart, 5th grade teacher, says about the exchange "It's really more than just this group of kids visiting from another country—it's a human exchange, a bridge between cultures." The Parisians had many things to say about their visit to Portland:
