In remembrance of Virginie Calmé, a former teacher who was part of the FAIS community from 2000 to 2017. She was a loving, caring, and inspiring mother to her two sons Etan and Eliot who were students at FAIS and who, like us, will miss her dearly. Our thoughts are with them and her husband, John. Virginie touched the lives of so many - students, families, colleagues, and more. Thank you Virginie for the impact you made on FAIS and the world.
