Gilkey Community Service Morning a Success
Friday, October 21, 2016
Our Gilkey students went far and wide (with some right here on campus) to share their skills and time with various Portland organizations, for Gilkey Community Service Day. Projects included collecting food for the Backpack Lunch Program, so that area students have lunch and food to take home on the weekend. Other groups helped out at SCRAP, the Food Bank, the Children's Book Bank, and Loaves and Fishes. Still others visited residents at Regency Park. Here on campus, fifty 6th grade students worked in teams to mulch the outdoor classrooms and trail, "adopt & save" blackberry-threatened new plantings, and dismantled, moved and remade a bridge. Kudos to our Middle Schoolers for giving their time to make our Portland communities stronger!

Fifth Graders Build Kaleidoscopes on Campus
Friday, June 17, 2016
The fifth graders who were on the FAIS campus this week spent Monday afternoon designing and constructing kaleidoscopes. The outer tubes and lenses were fabricated by TAP Plastics on NE Sandy Blvd. In the science classroom, the students were shown how to use acetate glue to precisely place the lenses on the ends of the tubes, and then they put together their own mirrors using different numbers of mirrors to achieve their ideal reflections. As the glue dried, each student ended the day with their own kaleidoscope to take home and enjoy.

Tuesday, May 03, 2016
Aurélie, an 18-year-old French high school graduate, and niece of former FAIS parents Jean-Claude and Sarah Marin, is looking for a Portland host family with young children for late-July to late-August 2016. I live in the Haute-Savoie, near Annecy in France. I have my First Aid Certification, I am also used to taking care of children since my mother runs a small home daycare and I have also done some babysitting. For two years I have helped train groups of children in gymnastics, as well as occasionally helped to train the beginners trampoline gymnasts in my club. I come to the States to improve my English before going on to college (to study communications and multimedia), and to learn more about American culture. I can help with the household chores, take care of the children and help improve their French, in exchange for hosting and English conversation. I am available for 4 ½ weeks beginning about July 21-22. If interested, please contact Sarah or Jean-Claude Marin at, or 503-244-3450.
