Third graders recently built bridges out of popsicle sticks, as part of their unit on strong, stable structures.
On November 27, people all over the world came together for #GivingTuesday to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. Thank you to all of FAIS families who participated in this giving movement, and generously donated a total of over $10,000 to the FAIS Annual Fund!
Mapathons help Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) use OSM maps to find problems on the ground where they are deployed. This is helpful because most maps in current use only give a sketch of where anything is located. Many third world nations don't actually include most buildings and roads on digital maps! Mapathons literally put these villages on the map.
