Migratory and Resident Birds at FAIS
Friday, May 19, 2017
This time of year, many different bird species are migrating to the Pacific Northwest via the Pacific Flyway. A couple migratory bird species that we could see in our forest this spring and summer are the Swainson's Thrush and the Vaux's Swift.

House & pet-sitter needed this summer
Friday, May 05, 2017
We will be away from late July until late August, and need someone to house-sit and look after our two Labradoodles (and some fish). We live within easy walking distance of FAIS. We're looking for someone responsible and able to walk the dogs 1-2 times daily, but they do not have to be home throughout the day. We're happy to pay a reasonable fee in addition to the use of our house.Contact Ursula at urshg@hotmail.com or (503) 954-5868.

Goldfish Sitter Needed
Tuesday, April 18, 2017
We are a French family who will spend this Summer in France. We have a small friend at home, a really quiet goldfish called "Oregon." It will need a new home for two months, from June 26th to August 20th. Duties include taking care of the water (cycle), cleaning the fish tank, and feeding it of course. Even though it's not complicated, we would prefer someone who has managed to keep their pet fish alive. You would keep the fish at your place and enjoy friendship with "Oregon!" For more information, contact : crueff@yahoo.fr . Thank you!

The Eco Action Team is proud to announce that FAIS is an EcoSchool, sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation. As an Eco School, the French American International School strives to: Ensure young people have power to be the change for sustainability that our world needs by engaging them in fun, action-orientated and socially responsible learning.
